Our ingredients

Explained

Inspired to find a solution to the challenge many people face when starting Keto, we wanted to create the perfect chocolate bar with the best possible nutritional value for a low-carb, sugar-free diet. While also tasting as good as your old sugar-full chocolate, there is no longer a need to compromise on health.

Did you know that the antioxidants in cacao are blocked when you add sugars, milk, or fillers to chocolate? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Luckily Funky Fat Foods is focused on quality ingredients and skipping the sugar or artificial stuff so you can taste, not only delicious chocolate but also get all the health benefits from cacao + the extra MCTs we add. This way, the antioxidants can do their job such as digesting food correctly, and giving mental clarity. 

Take a look inside the chocolates.

Cacao from Peru

Organic cacao is packed with antioxidants that prevent damage to our cells and support blood flow, blood pressure, and inflammation. Also, did you know that cacao has plenty of healthy fats, soluble fiber, and minerals that are essential to our diets?

Cocoa Butter

Cold-pressing the cacao beans. Including it in your diet can decrease inflammation and help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and/or stroke. Cacao beans are roasted, stripped, and pressed to take out the fat which is high in fatty acids to keep your body active, and vitamin E to support good vision, brain, skin, and blood. The stearic acid in cocoa butter converts into oleic acid which lowers levels of bad cholesterol and boosts levels of good cholesterol.

MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides)

MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) are medium-length chains of fatty acids that, unlike long chains, go straight to the liver and are absorbed faster, improving mental clarity, performance and memory. The liver digests them more easily and converts them into ketones which are a more steady energy source than glucose and help your body feel fuller for a longer time. There are 4 types of MCTs. For the Funky Fat chocolate bars we use C8 and C10 which have strong antibacterial and antifungal properties, which have been shown to improve skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, and dermatophilosis.

Erythritol

Erythritol occurs naturally in small quantities in some fruits and fermented foods. To industrially produce it, it has to undergo a natural fermentation process of glucose extracted from corn or starch. Since its molecule is so small and simple and has a low GI (glycaemic index), the gut digests it easily, which can help hydrate your colon, protect the intestinal tissue, and purify the colon from pathological organisms. Last, but not least, it has antioxidant properties fighting oxidative stress, preventing cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
