Ingredients we use and their benefits
At Rullick we only use ingredients that are whole, nutritious and delicious.
Organic dark chocolate:
Our chocolate is organic, refined sugar free and made with only 3 simple ingredients: organic cacao mass, organic coconut sugar, and organic cacao butter, it has 67% cacao solids and is sourced from the finest Dominican Republic cacao beans! Dark chocolate is scientifically proven to be very nutritious, 100g of our delicious dark chocolate chips contain 9 grams of fiber, dark chocolate also contains iron, magnesium, copper, zinc, and many other minerals, the cacao in our dark chocolate also contains antioxidants called flavonoids which have powerful antioxidant properties and can help manage symptoms of inflammation.
Organic coconut sugar:
Coconut sugar comes from the sap of the coconut palm which is a natural source, it contains potassium, magnesium, and sodium which are essential for regulating your body's water content, it has approximately 400 times more potassium than regular sugar, as mentioned above it has a low glycemic index (GI), to put it into perspective regular sugar has a GI of 65, while coconut sugar has a GI of 35 which is close to the GI found in fruits which is around 25. Coconut sugar contains iron, zinc and calcium.
Since coconut sugar is simply dehydrated coconut sap, it retains all the rich antioxidants found from the original source, it also contains healthy fats that are known to help prevent high cholesterol and heart disease, additionally, it contains inulin which is a type of dietary fiber that helps keep your gut healthy and balance your blood sugar.
Our creamy almond butter is made with only whole, golden roasted almonds, almonds are a source of healthy fats, plant protein and fiber. They carry an impressive amount of vitamin E, manganese and magnesium, all these nutrients are available by just eating a small handful of almonds. Almonds are high in fibre and protein which are nutrients that are known to keep you fuller for longer.
Coconut oil contains healthy fatty acids, these fats have different effects on the body compared to most of the other dietary fats, one of the effects is that it is able to provide quick energy to your body and brain, coconut oil also may have antimicrobial effects because of the lauric acid that makes up 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil, when the lauric acid is digested it forms a substance called monolaurin which along with the lauric acid can kill harmful pathogens like bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on earth! They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants and provide calcium, fiber, protein, healthy fats, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and many more.
The combination of healthy fats, fiber and protein means that our cookies are digested pretty slowly, which provides a long, slow release of energy that doesn't spike your blood sugar levels instead keeping them stable, our cookies use ingredients that have a low glycemic index closer to the glycemic index of a fruit, which to be honest is a win-win situation!
Refined sugar vs Unrefined sugar
Refined sugar is what is typically found in cakes, biscuits, and other sweet treats that we love, the issue with refined sugar is that it contains no nutritional value and is therefore just empty calories. When refined sugar is consumed it is broken down immediately causing insulin and blood sugar levels to skyrocket, because of this it causes you to not feel satiated after you are done eating, it has a high glycemic index meaning that it raises blood sugar levels quickly, unlike unrefined sugars such as honey and coconut sugar that have a low Glycemic index which does not raise blood sugar levels as quickly.
