Product Description - Apricot Power ApriSweet 60% Dark Chocolate Whole Food Snack Bar 2.65 oz. (75 g)
The benefits of dark chocolate are nearly unrivaled. It contains iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and selenium. Dark chocolate is among the highest tested antioxidants. Its flavanols help relax arteries, reducing blood pressure, and even helping protect skin from sun damage. Dark chocolate can also improve brain power, reduce insulin resistance, lower bad cholesterol, and raise good cholesterol. That’s why we use dark chocolate in our ApriSweet bars.
Most chocolate is full of harmful chemicals, fat, and sugar, in all its disguised forms. ApriSweet Dark Chocolate is different. It’s healthy chocolate that’s packed with nutrition and innovation. It has net zero calories from carbs and fat, and is specifically designed to keep your blood sugar in the ideal safe ranges. It all starts with organic and natural ingredients.
Only 100% certified organic, fair-trade cacao beans grown by a non-profit environmental preservation foundation is used to make ApriSweet Dark Chocolate. Natural compounds are added that act as enzyme inhibitors to block the digestion of sugars and starches. Natural plant fiber based bindings are used to bind the fat in the chocolate so a body’s enzymes can’t grip or digest the fatty acids. ApriSweet chocolate follows the vegan standard, so no animal products are used in ApriSweet Dark Chocolate. But there’s something very special about ApriSweet Dark Chocolate that no other dark chocolate in the world has; it’s infused with B-17.
There are 9-10 finely ground, raw, bitter, apricot seeds in each 2.65 oz ApriSweet bar. That translates to up to 250 mg of B-17 in each bar (or up to 14mg per piece), but you won’t taste the natural bitterness of the seeds because we’ve carefully masked it in an ingenious food profile. You’re not only getting a great source of B-17, and a whole lot of rich, smooth, dark chocolatey nutrition, but it tastes great too!
This chocolate bar is not intended for children.

Enzyme Inhibitors: A safe and natural extract from sea vegetables, this powerful formula greatly slows the activity of sugar and starch digesting enzymes, helping to block the absorption and digestion of sugar and starch, as well as preventing spikes in blood glucose levels.
Plant Fiber-Based Bindings: Special fat-binding complexes from soluble plant fibers bind the tails of fatty acids so your body’s enzymes can’t grip or digest them. This is used to hold the fat in our chocolate. These fibers bind up to nine times their own weight in dietary fat, preventing its absorption and eliminating it, without any harmful side effects. It’s the best of both worlds; you get the smooth, creamy taste of the fat, but it’s not absorbed in your digestive system.
100% Natural and Organic Ingredients: Sadly, with all the misinformation and very questionable ingredients in many food products today, it is no longer just what goes into your food, rather what is left out that makes it special. In the case of our ApriSweet Dark Chocolate, you won’t find any allergens at all (no dairy, soy, gluten, or nuts). You will only find 100% natural and organic ingredients. Nothing artificial, nothing synthetic.
100% Organic, Disease-resistant, Fair-Trade Cacao Beans: The best cacao comes from the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica. In the Dominican Republic, they grow the much-coveted Hispaniola bean. Its flavor profile is unique among traditional cacao beans. Representing a very small part of the nation’s crop, it’s grown only in the valley around San Francisco de Macoris and on the hills near Hato Mayor. Harvesting is done by hand and is labor-intensive.
Cacao pods are carefully cut down using large knives on long poles. These pods are collected in baskets, split open, extracted by hand, and placed in wooden boxes for 6-8 days where they’re turned occasionally for even fermentation, followed by another week of sun-drying. The Hispaniola cacao bean takes significantly more labor than other beans, which you will no doubt appreciate.
Sugar-Free: ApriSweet Dark Chocolate is sugar-free. It uses a sweetener that comes from the Stevia plant. Stevia is 200x sweeter than cane sugar, so we use less of it. A lot less. Our Stevia is organic, and is more scarce than other forms of Stevia. It has zero calories and when it’s used as a replacement to sugar, results in lower insulin levels.
Gluten-Free: Gluten is used as an emulsifier or thickener. It is found in wheat, barley, and rye. If you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity it can make you sick to your stomach so no gluten here.
Non-GMO (Also No Dairy, No Soy): A GMO is a living organism whose genetic material has been altered in a lab. Many crop seeds are being genetically modified under the guise of combatting starvation, but they’re so problematic (serious human and animal health dangers, herbicide tolerance, low crop yield) that it’s very hard to find the good through all the bad. Our co-branding partner/developer works with their farmers to protect crops from GMO contamination.
No Animal Products Used: The health benefits of dark chocolate are even better when they do not contain animal products. There is no need to use animal products in foods, so ApriSweet Dark Chocolate follows the vegan standard. This product will do no harm to animals or the environment.
Suggested Use: Enjoy these apricot kernel bars one per day or as suggested by your practitioner or dietician.
