About Us > HNINA'S PRINCIPLES
At HNINA we use 100% raw organic natural and unprocessed traceable ingredients originating from both local organic farms and the world's best sources of fair-trade sustainable pure organic fair trade raw cacao, sprouted nuts, sprouted seeds, raw honey, pure maple, dates and pure organic vanilla beans.
The quality of each pure ingredient is the reason for the taste, healthy properties and overall quality of the finished product.
We tolerate no GMOs or harmful pesticides; we use no refined processed sugar, soy lecithin or dairy, no colorants or preservatives, no palm oil, vegetable oil, high fructose syrup or corn syrup, no wax or other shining agents, many of which are often present in the most popular, even high end chocolates.
Prior to making our paste (the praline or ganache), the organic nuts and seeds are soaked, activated or if you prefer sprouted.
We then dehydrate the sprouted nuts and the sprouted seeds at low temperatures maintaining their raw nature. This painstaking and time consuming activation process increases the nutritional content and bio-availability of the nuts and seeds to our digestive system and provides improved taste and texture. We lightly roast the nuts and seeds to release their aromas in our Lightly Roasted line or keep them raw for our Raw Vegan line.
Our single origin grand cru raw dark chocolate is always raw .
Our sweeteners, pure maple, dates and raw honey, are always natural unprocessed, unrefined and non-inflammatory.
We only use raw honey &/or pure maple syrup in our chocolate products, maple in our snacks and dates in our sprouted spreads.
We only use organic certified pure vanilla beans, never extract or synthetic substitutes.
We do not use any pasteurized or irradiated ingredients and we strive to preserve the living enzymes in each of our ingredients to make them the perfect superfoods.
We choose our sprouted nuts and sprouted seeds combinations based on taste, nutritional value, PH (alkaline vs. acidic) and protein content.
All this attention to quality is why our raw dark chocolate truffles, our raw cacao and sprouted nuts spreads, our raw chocolate tablets and our sprouted nuts and our sprouted seeds snacks are so tasty yet healthyand easy to digest.
