Due to some controversy on the health benefits of agave, I visited the source of our agave in Guadalajara, Mexico to do quality assurance. I am so glad that I visited! I found that our source has amazing social and environmental ethics, and their processing involves no added ingredients or heating over 118 degrees. I highly approve of our source and have posted a report on my Adventure with Agave - including my visit and reasons for using this sweetener: http://www.gnosischocolate.com/agave


To those who would like to avoid agave:

Our Sugarplum Gingerbread and OrigiNib Collection Bars are sweetened with Balinese Palm Nectar. We will be launching more products with alternative sweeteners. To learn of these launches, sign up for our ChocoLetter! We are also more than happy to create Custom Chocolates with any sweetener you would like (stevia, yacon, erythritrol, xylitol, etc).
