Sacred Heart Zero Pointe Mint 1.44oz Perfect Golden Spiral Heart is a special raw organic vegan chocolate designed for people who are concerned about blood sugar related issues such as diabetes. It is a simple peppermint dark chocolate which uses organic Erythritol (similar to Xylitol) as a sweetener. Erythritol is considered to register zero on the glycemic index.
This semi-sweet chocolate scored very high on Dr. Gabriel Cousens’ special energy test. Whole peppermint leaf is stone ground right into this chocolate. In addition, a special essential oil of peppermint from France is used where the distiller distills from fresh peppermint leaves–an extremely difficult task to achieve which results in a deep yet subtle peppermint flavor without a candy-like taste.
Erythritol is slightly cooling on the tongue and matches up well with cool peppermint. The cacao bean currently being made into Zero Pointe Mint is called the "Arriba Nacional" from Ecuador.
