Our Ingredients

Cocoa Ingredients:

Cocoa ingredients are derived from the cacao tree (Theobroma Cacao).  Each tree yields a cacao pod encasing typically 40 to 60 seeds called cacao beans.  The cacao beans are removed from the pod and further processed into cocoa butter, cocoa nibs, cocoa liquor, and bulk cocoa powder.  

Our cocoa based products are organically processed and single source harvested by cacao farmers in Central America and the Caribbean. The cocoa ingredients used in our products can be utilized in finished product applications in the chocolate, food, personal care, and dietary supplement industries.

Goji Berries Ingredients:

Goji berries are the fruit derived from the Lycium barbarum plant. Goji berries are also known as Wolfberries, and they mainly grow in Northern China. The goji berry fruit has a bright orange/red color and contains between 10–60 tiny yellow seeds. Goji berries are removed from the plant and can be consumed in several forms: cooked, raw, and dried. Many health benefits are being claimed about Goji berries because they are a unique source of fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin C.

Our Goji Berries are organically processed and harvested in the Ningxia region in the north of China. These berries can be used in brewed teas, juices/smoothies, foods (i.e. salads, cereal, granola, and yogurt), wines, medicines, and many other ways
