Q: CAN WE CONSIDER WHOLEFRUIT CHOCOLATE AS A SUGAR FREE CHOCOLATE?

Wholefruit chocolate is made from one single ingredient, the cacaofruit, therefore it contains sugar coming from the cacaofruit itself. So, we can say: “no other sugar added” and “Made from 100% pure cacaofruit”.

Q: IN WHAT RATIO IS THE SUGAR PRESENT IN THE CHOCOLATE AND IS IT THE SAME RATIO NATURALLY FOUND IN THE CACAOFRUIT JUICE?

A: The sugars are the only ones naturally present in the natural cacaofruit pulp juice and are mainly dextrose and fructose in the same ratio as found naturally in the cacaofruit pulp juice.

Q: IS IT SUSTAINABLE?

A: Yes, Wholefruit chocolate is made from sustainably sourced cacao.

Q: CAN WE CLAIM IT VEGAN?

A: It does not contain any milk as an ingredient. So in Europe, yes we can claim Vegan. However in US & Japan, we cannot claim Vegan due to milk carry-over.

Q: DO WE HAVE ACCESS TO INFORMATION SUCH AS GLYCEMIC INDEX?

A: The Glycemic index is comparable to standard 70% dark chocolate. Chocolate as a category has a general glycemic index of 40 +/-3.

Q: IS WHOLEFRUIT CHOCOLATE HEALTHY?

A: WholeFruit chocolate contains more than 40% less sugar than the most consumed dark & milk chocolates. It is entirely made from the cacaofruit, a nutrient rich fruit, naturally high in fiber and a source of potassium and many more nutrients and minerals. It doesn’t contain refined sugars, only the sugars from the cacaofruit. However we cannot make any health claims.
