We have a nutrition panel now! This information is for the 1.5 oz serving size of Rox Chox:
Raw Organic Fair Trade Cacao
Raw Cacao is chocolate in its most pure and unprocessed form. Cacao is known to aid in creating a general feeling of love and well being due to its high levels of seratonin, tryptophan, theobromine, and phenethylamine (PEA). Raw Cacao is extremely beneficial to humans because of its especially high levels of antioxidants (oligomeric procynanidins, resveratrol and the polyphenols: catechin and epicatechin), magnesium and other minerals, and healthy Omega 6 fatty acids. Raw Cacao is known to aid in weight loss, prevention of cavities and regulation of blood sugar, which is beneficial for diabetes. Keeping the Cacao from being overheated preserves these enzymes and nutrients. Our cacao comes fair-trade to us from Peru.
Birch Sweetener extracted from trees in Indiana (Non-GMO Xylitol)
Xylitol is a low-calorie natural sweetener made from the cellulose of Birch trees. Some people say Xylitol tastes sweeter than cane sugar. Doctors say it can prevent cavities and is good for the gums as well. Xylitol has a low glycemic index of 13 and is metabolized without insulin, making it safe for diabetics, individuals with hyperglycemia or metabolic syndrome and those on the Candida diet. Xylitol is anti-bacterial so prevents tooth decay and infections of the ears and upper respiratory tract and has also been shown to actually improve bone density and so is helpful in the treatment of osteoporosis. Xylitol contains no artificial colors or flavors and no additives or preservatives. Xylitol is free of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) and contains no gelatin or animal source materials. It is naturally occurring in beets, plums, raspberries, corn and birch, and our bodies manufacture it in the metabolization of carbohydrates.
Xylitol is not safe for dogs. In any amount, it poses a fatal risk to our canine friends. Please exercise extra caution around dogs, and lock up your stocks of Rox Chox so they can't access it! If you are ordering Rox Chox through the mail, let us know if we need to use extra-dog-proof packaging.
Raw Organic Fair Trade Coconut oil and flakes from the Philippines
Coconut oil is rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and medium-chain triglycerides that give the body an energy boost, help regulate blood sugar level, are anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. Coconut oil improves digestion and absorption of other nutrients, improves insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose, relieves stress on the pancreas and enzyme systems of the body, improves calcium and magnesium absorption, supports the development of strong bones and teeth, and helps protect against osteoporosis.
Organic Fair Trade Non-alcohol Vanilla Extract
(water, vegetable glycerin, vanilla) Vanilla is simply delicious.
Celtic Sea Salt
Celtic Sea Salt is harvested from the Atlantic seawater off the coast of Brittany, France. It is naturally air and sun-dried in clay ponds and gathered with wooden tools to preserve its living enzymes. Because it is unrefined, it contains all of the 84 beneficial live mineral elements found in seawater, with no chemical and preservatives nor any other additives.
