For all you chocolate fiends out there forced to curb your habit in an effort to eat healthier, Rawtella may be the product for you...if you’re going to indulge and have a craving for something decadent, chocolaty and sweet, why not pick the lesser of two evils and go for something all-natural that won’t pollute your body?
As soon as I got the jar, I couldn't resist and had to taste it. The spread is smooth, very smooth, and you can easily spoon some out of the jar. It also melts readily in the mouth, and, bonus for a sugar-loather like me, it's not too sweet. In fact, it's just right! And since it's so rich and satisfying (and perhaps because the nuts are sprouted too), it satisfies a craving for something chocolat-y without weighing me down.

Peeled raw certified organic Criollo cacao bean nibs (pieces of peeled low fermented cacao beans). Cacao contains a wide array of unique properties and minerals, including high levels of sulfur and magnesium. It may increase your focus and alertness and contains nutrients to keep you happy. Chocolate and cacao are often associated with love. All this is due to phenylethylamine contained in the cacao.
Hazelnuts are a good source of energy with their 60.5% fat content. They are rich source of vitamin E which helps prevent oxidation of the polyunsaturated fats. Hazelnuts are high in oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated fatty acid, which helps to lower cholesterol. The cardio-protective arginine, an amino acid from hazelnuts helps in the relaxation of blood vessels.
When the coconut tree is taped, it produces a naturally sweet, nutrient-rich "sap" that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic and contains 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH. To create coconut sugar it is then dehydrated at low temperatures.
