Navitas Naturals is making it easy for people to bring home the art of chocolate making with their innovative new Organic Superfood Chocolate Kits. Available in three delicious organic superfood varieties – Goji Berry, Cacao Nib and Goldenberry - for a SRP of $9.99, each of the fun and unique Kits creates 12 organic chocolates.
Navitas Naturals Organic Superfood Chocolate Kits are loaded with antioxidants, and these healthy treats can be prepared in just minutes. In addition to the Kit ingredients, the only other items needed to complete the easy recipe are a knife, a small bowl, a large bowl and an ice cube tray. Each Organic Superfood Chocolate Kit contains raw: organic cacao butter, organic cacao powder, organic mesquite, organic lucuma, organic maca and the specific organic superfood which is featured in the chewy center of the chocolates (Goji Berry, Cacao nib, or Goldenberry). “Raw cacao from Peru, goji berries from China, and goldenberries from Columbia are some of the most popular superfood items in the marketplace right now,” says Zach Adelman, President and founder of Navitas Naturals (www.navitasnaturals.com).
Healthy and Nutritious Make-Your-Own Chocolates
Each of the organic superfoods featured in the Organic Superfood Chocolate Kits have been revered for centuries by indigenous people for their culinary and traditional medicinal uses, and now modern science is demonstrating their nutritional value. For example, raw cacao is one of the best sources of antioxidants, the richest food source of magnesium, and offers a vast array of essential minerals and nutrients. Goji berries are one of the highest known sources of antioxidants and they contain 18 amino acids and all essential amino acids. Mesquite is of great value to diabetics because it contains fructose which does not require insulin to digest and it is also a good source of lysine (an amino acid), calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc.
Naturally sweet, but low on the glycemic index, lucuma is a delightful alternative sweetener and it is a great source of iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B3, beta carotene, fiber and bio-available protein. Maca is rich in amino acids, vitamins B1, B2, C and E, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and is a good source of sterols and fatty acids. Goldenberries contain carotene, bioflavonoids, and vitamins and are an unusually high fruit source of protein and phosphorus.
