  • More Details
A lush combination of sour cherries, pure organic rose essential oil and chunks of our Coconut Mylk Chocolate (20%) gives you this unique take on the classic Turkish delight.

What is it?
This Luvju blends together the sweet tang of sour cherries with generous chunks of our Coconut Mylk Chocolate. Our chocolate uses premium Amazonico Criollo Cacao sourced from Peru. There is also the delicate hint of organic rose essential oil, which results in a deliciously unique but healthy snack, reminiscent of the Turkish delight.

At Loving Earth, our combination of ingredients, in their raw form, is not only healthy and pure, but also delicious in a way that simply can’t be imagined without tasting it.

The wrapper is compostable and made using sustainably managed renewable resources such as non-GMO corn and wood cellulose.

Health Benefits
Cacao Butter
Raw Cacao is a source of magnesium, which is an important mineral for a healthy functioning heart. It also plays a key role in producing energy for the neurons in the brain from glucose. So when there is an abundance of magnesium the brain works with clarity and focus.

Cashews
Cashews have a lower fat content than other nuts and approximately 75% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, with about 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid being oleic acid - the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health. Studies of diabetic patients show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels.

Raw Cacao Nibs
Antioxidants
Research has demonstrated that the antioxidants in cacao are highly stable and easily available to human metabolism. In the adjacent table you can see that our Raw Cacao Nibs have nearly 3 times the amount of antioxidants as Goji Berries. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which normally cause cell and tissue damage. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food.
