How much fat do your products contain?
All products within our product range contain varying amounts of fat. The fat we use in our chocolate comes from cocoa butter which occurs in cocoa beans, a plant source. Milk chocolate will contain some fat from the milk and products that contain nuts will also contain some fat from nuts.
Cocoa butter, like all fats is composed of several fatty acids – the main one being stearic acid which is a saturated fatty acid. Whilst saturated fats generally raise blood cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease, cocoa butter is an exception as research has shown that cocoa butter does not raise cholesterol as might be predicted by its saturated fatty acid content. Cocoa Butter has a neutral effect on blood cholesterol levels.
