Alter Eco recently launched a new set of chocolate snack packs that help consumers to indulge mindfully with sensible portions and nourishing ingredients. The Truffle 3-Packs for the Sea Salt, Mint Crème and Salted Caramel Truffles have the potential to help curb overindulgence and satisfy on-the-go sweet cravings.
The chocolates themselves are made with an outer shell of dark Ecuadorian chocolate and a combination of cacao, creamy milk and pure coconut oil on the inside. As sustainability is key for the brand, the use of coconut oil is significant as a replacement for palm oil. The truffles are also free from other ingredients, including soy, artificial flavors and emulsifiers.
A growing number of forward-thinking brands are making a point to emphasize palm oil-free snack formulas, as the controversial ingredient poses a threat to rainforests and the many species that thrive within them.
