Flavor & Function
With respect for Earth’s natural majesty, we celebrate Theobroma Cacao!
Gnosis has sourced Balinese, Ecuadorian, Peruvian, Grenadian, and Madagascan
raw cacao with deep appreciation for the range of flavor and myriad health benefits of the world’s most beloved food in its raw, unadultered state.
Sweetened safely with stevia or mineral-rich coconut sugar, Gnosis’ galaxy of products will astound your tastebuds - never in a million years would you guess this is healthy chocolate?!
Flavor to delight your palate and Function to empower your potential.
Gnosis’ products are the wings upon which a vision of nutritional integrity, sustainable business, and societal transformation fly.
We do not compromise or cut corners.
Our products are handmade with care for your body, your palate, and the planet. We are certified organic, vegan, and kosher, and all our products are free of GMO, refined sugar, dairy, soy, gluten, peanuts, and any other ingredient that might disrespect your well-being.
We choose to invest in sustainable packaging - PCW recycled, vegetable ink printed, glass vs. plastic jars, and biodegradable or home compostable bags. We safely ship world-wide, year-long without styrofoam, and reuse packing & shipping materials.
Vanessa personally visits supply chains to ensure our standards of sustainability and Raw Integrity are upheld. With this level of transparency, Gnosis can confidently conduct business that honors the culture and tradition of those who tend crops we are so grateful to obtain for our alchemical blends of cacao and other sacred botanicals.
Domestically, our “corporate” presence serves the community as a platform for consumer education, empowerment, and engagement. Promoting our family of like-minded companies, sponsoring inspirational events, and hosting health seminars and chocolate parties is not just tremendous fun…
Transparency in company communications and sincere community collaboration
are the keys to our 5 years of steady, sustained growth!
Vanessa’s clients never “forgot” to take their supplements again!
In 2007 - when raw food and green juice were fringe - a wellness coach with training in preventative medicine, and passion for culinary exploration discovered the secret to getting her clients to remember their supplements every day.
Vanessa was introduced to raw cacao beans by David Wolfe in 2006. She began experimenting at home - blending these magical beans with agave nectar - and soon discovered that by balancing the flavor profile of cacao with fruits & nuts, she could add a significant quantity of herbs! It became clear - chocolate is the ultimate delivery system for Ayurvedic, Chinese, and South American herbs.
And so a new category of chocolate was born - Functional Chocolate! With no startup captital or partners, no sales team or financial consultant - Vanessa’s bars were the first raw - the first low-glycemic - and the first superfood-infused chocolate bars to hit Whole Foods Market.
Vanessa’s life is dedicated to maintaining integrity in every facet of her company as it grows - pushing the boundaries of what an unfunded company can accomplish in one of the most competitive categories in the food industry. With a vision of dipping the world in functional chocolate, Vanessa is honored to collaborate with revolutionary entrepreneurs, high integrity companies, and the mainstream media to ignite a preventative healthcare system without sacrifice, side effects, or stents. full story here
