Read more on the ingredients that make our Almond Toffee, Crunchy Quinoa Toffee, Caramel, Coconut, and Mint Thins Blissfully Better for you and your taste buds!
Organic Coconut Nectar
This highly sustainable natural sweetener is harvested from the flower blossoms of coconut trees. As a further step, coconut nectar can be stirred and evaporated until the syrup crystalizes into a rich sugar. Coconut nectar has a substantially low glycemic index, which means it introduces slowly into the bloodstream. This unique sweetener offers more vitamins and minerals – and often, in much higher quantities – than most other sweeteners.
Organic Cocoa Mass
(AKA Organic Cocoa Liquor)
This is the purest form of the dried and roasted cocoa bean, produced by grinding the bean into a paste and then melting to a precise temperature. Although it has no alcohol, cocoa mass is also known as chocolate liquor and is a key ingredient to creating commercially available chocolate. Chocolate has long been associated with luxury and special occasions, and with good reason. This deliciously desirable “decadent” ingredient is also one of the most healthful. Chocolate also offers benefits associated with maintaining healthy stress levels, and contains theobromine and phenethylamine which helps support normal brain function and enhanced mood.
Almonds are native to the mediterranean and have been consumed since ancient times. Heart healthy organic almonds contain vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. Our almonds are raw and still have their skins on, making them a nutrient dense addition to Almond Toffee Thins.
Quinoa is an ancient seed that was discovered by the Incas three to four hundred years ago. They believed it increased the stamina of their warriors. Today it is it is known as the superfood of the future, and with good reason. Quinoa is a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids. It contains almost twice as much fiber as other grains.
Organic Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is a key ingredient used in the creation of chocolate that takes Blissfully Better’s Thins to another dimension. Cocoa butter comes from the Theobroma plant, which translates in Greek to “food of the gods.” Because very few chocolates available on the market are made with our super star ingredient, coconut blossom nectar, we make from scratch all the chocolate used in our recipes. This adds an amazingly rich and lovely flavor unlike any other chocolate you’ve tasted before.
Rich in taste, yet offering health benefits too, Vanilla is the perfect addition for our Sea Salt Caramel Thins! Organic Vanilla has numerous antioxidants.
Organic Salted Butter
Used in our Almond and Crunchy Quinoa Toffee Thins. Our butter is an easily absorbable source of vitamin A, which helps with maintaining good vision and keeping the endocrine system in balance. The important minerals found in butter include manganese, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium (a powerful antioxidant).
Organic Heavy Cream
Heavy Cream adds a rich and luxurious taste to our Sea Salt Caramel Thins. The cream is abundant in important vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, Calcium, Riboflavin and Potassium.
Salt from the Sea is not just a flavor enhancer for our Blissfully Better Caramel Thins, it also helps to provide trace minerals to your body that are found in abundance in the earth’s seas and oceans. Sea Salt also contains calcium and magnesium, both essential minerals.
Because of their versatility, coconut trees are called the “Tree of Life” and are well known for their many uses. Coconuts contain fiber and plenty of vitamins and minerals including Vitamins C, E, and several B Vitamins. Coconut also contains many minerals and electrolytes including calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, sodium and phosphorus.
A popular herb with a fresh taste, mint is the star of the show in our Original Mint Thins. In addition to pairing well with Chocolate, Mint is known to soothe, freshen and increase mental alertness.
Organic Coconut Oil
Extracted from the kernel of mature coconuts, and harvested from the coconut palm, coconut oil is blended with mint and cocoa in making our Mint Thins. Coconut Oil is known to have many benefits including providing quick energy to your brain, and increasing HDL (good) cholesterol.
