THE STORY BEHIND MERAKI CACAO

I’m Vicky, the founder of Meraki Cacao. I love chocolate and have been tinkering about with making it since 2016. I also love healthy foods and believe that what we eat should nourish our bodies, even treats! After trying and disliking pretty much every ‘healthy’ chocolate out there, I set about creating my own.

I knew I wanted to make a ‘raw’ chocolate dense in nutrients and refined sugar free. ‘Raw’ means that I use unroasted cacao nibs and raw cacao butter. These are stone ground, together with our special sweetener for around 30 hours. This unusual method produces an incredibly smooth mixture which means that once they’ve been made into bars, will melt in your mouth.

Whilst grinding, the mix is kept below 45 degrees centigrade to preserve as many nutrients as possible. Natural flavours are added at the end of the grinding process. The mix is hand tempered and then moulded into bars. All the bars are made with organic ingredients and are gluten free, refined sugar free and dairy free. Apart from the Aztec flavour (contains raw honey), all of them are suitable for vegans. All the bars are made with ground cashew nuts, some contain either hazelnuts or almonds. One flavour also contains sesame. Our products may also contain traces of peanuts. They are not suitable for nut or sesame allergy sufferers.
