In today's world, we think about food as something that is pre-made, already done for you. Those foods are most of the time addictive and made to make you come back to it (sugar is 8 times more addictive than cocaine and I am not even talking about rancid hydrogenated fat).
At Hnina, we stay away from sweet or too sweet and from processed saturated bad fat. Food that is made with scientific "healthy sweet" or refined fat are not healthy, alkalizing or nourishing.
Sugar that comes from a fruit is healthier because they come with friends: fiber, vitamins, minerals. For example, if you eat an apple, you will get vitamin C, B complex vitamins, phytonutrients, minerals... Please see below:

If you drink apple juice, or eat coconut sugar, agave and all sort of refined/pure processed sweeteners, those are coming with no friends. It is pure fructose and/or glucose injected into your body. Only the liver knows how to take care of the fructose. Can you imagine the damage?
Hnina uses only sweeteners that have friends, are pure, unrefined, raw (dates and raw honey) and loaded with nutrients (pure maple syrup) and fiber. Hnina is made out of healthy good unsaturated fat from sprouted nuts and unprocessed pure raw dark organic chocolate. It is a pure nutrients dense superfood that comes with some calories. In fact, Hnina is so satiating, that after a truffle or a bite of dark chocolate, you will be done and happy! This is exactly the exact opposite of the need to eat more and more and more without being able to stop.
Hnina organic raw dark chocolate do not contain ANY processed ingredient. Hnina is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and is not sweet. Our raw dark chocolate also acts as a prebiotic. At first, many people are chocked. For the ones, that already made the change in their lifestyle (meaning understanding that sugar is not their friend), they found Hnina and Nuts About Chocolate to be their best ally.
if you are an athlete, a pregnant woman, an active person, a child who wants some sweets but refuses sugar, then you may love Hnina.
Sweet is not a food (even this seems so comforting) it is a poison. Our bodies are not designed to eat sugar refined and saturated or rancid fat.

My life is refined sugar free (including coconut sugar or agave) since I was pregnant with twins 8 years ago.
I have been a dark chocolate addict all my life and yes, at times I was more curvaceous than others.
You know why, because I did not know what sugar could do to me. You always think, that's OK, I will burn it off tomorrow but then you do not realize all the glycation and inflammatory reactions that can happen in your body while consuming refined glucose or refined fructose.
TO DIE FOR... NOT FROM
Hi guys...Ron here...for a change.
This week EWG (a great consumer organization that tests products for toxins) released a report finding Roundup Glyphosate in 43 of 45 of the most popular oat cereals, granolas, snack bars and oatmeals.
The list of course included Cheerios, Lucky Charms and a bunch of Quaker and Kellogs products, but also KIND bars and plenty of healthy sounding Nature this and Earth that...Whole Foods too...et tu Brute?
