The Healy Group recently debuted a new sugar alternative made from finely ground discarded cocoa shells. Called PrimaFi Cocoa, the sweetener is ideal for chocolate products and has no adverse sensory impact on the final product. This eco-friendly product is available in both light and dark powders for milk and dark chocolate products. Moreover, PrimaFi Cocoa is reported to improve gut health, as it boasts dietary fiber that has been shown to have well-established health benefits including digestive wellbeing.
According to founder of the Healy Group, Gareth Healthy, the product is a "straight one-for-one swap with sugar" and can dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of traditional chocolate making by repurposing the otherwise discarded cocoa shells.
