I still can’t believe how anyone could ever prefer to ingest chemically made sweeteners…

I still can’t believe how anyone could ever prefer to ingest chemically made sweeteners like sucralose, aspartame and saccharin, used for sugar-free and zero-calorie products, instead of cane sugar, coconut sugar and panela, who are simply extracted from their plants and minimally processed 🌱🍚
The only reason I can give myself is that consumers don’t research any further. They associate claims like “zero-calories” and “sugar-free” with health choices, and that is all they need to know 👻💱
At the same time, God forbid companies make any effort to specify what they put in their stupid “healthier versions” in the place of sugar.
If you want to limit your amount of sugar in regards to eating chocolate, simply limit the quantity you ingest💁🍫
Go for 2 squares instead of 4. One bonbon instead of 3. Train your mind and become disciplined 🐘
It pays off way more than indulging in chocolate that tastes like crap and is full of chemicals.
What do YOU think of sugar-free chocolate? 👇

A vital step in quality control.

Reception of cacao en baba. A vital step in quality control. Each ‘cubeta’ holds aproximadamente 20kgs of beans which after being fermented ends up around 7kgs of dried beans.
