About Loving Earth Activated Chocolate Buckinis
Handmade in Melbourne, Loving Earth Chocolate Buckinis are a healthy chocolate treat. Crafted from a dehydrated blend of Raw Cacao Powder, low GI (35) Coconut Sugar, Coconut Chips and buckwheat, they add a choice selection of our favourite superfoods to complete the mix.
Buckwheat looks like a grainy cereal and sounds like some kind of wheat – but surprisingly enough, it is none of those. It is actually the seed of a fruit. In fact, buckwheat is not related to wheat at all, it comes from the sorrel, knotweed and rhubarb family.
Buckwheat does not contain any gluten which makes it a great alternative for people with an intolerance for the stuff. It has a high protein content, has all essential amino acids and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. This is particularly important since the body cannot produce essential amino acids on its own and depends entirely on food sources to get them.
To activate buckwheat, loving earth soak it, wash and rinse it, then dehydrate it at low temperatures (under 40 degrees celcius). This allows for easier digestion and absorption of nutrients.
