Rich dark Peruvian chocolate textured with popped amaranth grains and a sprinkling of sea salt. No added dairy, gluten or soy. Vegan certified through the Vegan Society and coeliac society approved.

In case you are wondering; Amaranth grains were once considered a staple food in the Inca, Maya and Aztec civilisations. it is classified as a pseudocereal, meaning that its not technically a cereal grain like wheat or oats, but it shares a comparable set of nutrients and is used in similar ways. Its earthy, nutty flavour works well in a variety of dishes including with bennetto dark chocolate and added sea salt.

This nutritious grain is naturally gluten-free and rich in protein, fiber, micronutrients and antioxidants. 

Founded by Lucy Bennetto, Bennetto Natural Foods Company is based in Christchurch and pays careful consideration to our people, our animals and our planet, and at every step look at ways to minimise their footprint the best they can. They use fair trade cocoa beans, and use natural, organic ingredients, to make incredible, carbon neutral, vegan chocolate. They support communities by ethically sourcing their cocoa from the Peruvian Fairtrade cooperative or Acopagro, both Fairtrade cooperatives at the base of the Amazon Jungle in Peru, made up of 2000 small-scale farmers. This long-standing cooperative supports education, opportunities for women and reforestation in the Amazon.
