THE ERND LIFESTYLE
You're working hard to live a healthier lifestyle; wouldn't it be nice if your favorite foods were working hard alongside you!? Whether you’re following a keto, vegan, or gluten free lifestyle, or just craving a delicious chocolate without all the sugar, we’re here for you.
By crafting our chocolate using fine Belgian chocolate without any added sugars, we’ve been able to create the perfect keto treat: an amazingly delicious chocolate, with high-quality fats from organic coconut oil and incredibly low net carbs - less than 1g per serving!
A ketogenic lifestyle includes a high fat, low carb diet that puts your body into a metabolic state call ketosis. In ketosis, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy, and turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain. A ketogenic lifestyle can also help achieve significant reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. The keto lifestyle has been known to help individuals lose weight, improve overall health, and address various health challenges including cancer, Alzheimers, and diabetes.
What are net carbs?
A primary consideration in a keto lifestyle is a limited consumption of net carbs. Net carbs differ from total carbs in that they exclude non-impact carbs (carbs that are not absorbed or digested by the body). To calculate net carbs, subtract fiber and sugar polyols (like Maltitol), from the total carbs in a food.

Sugar-Free and No-Sugar-Added
Our delicious Belgian chocolate is made without any added sugars. We instead use Maltitol, a sugar alcohol, to craft a chocolate that offers the same great taste as traditional Belgian chocolate recipes, without all of the negative impacts of sugar consumption. Maltitol has a lower glycemic index than sugar, and isn't completely absorbed by your body, resulting in a slower rise in blood sugar and insulin levels when compared to sugar.
Why Limit Sugar?
There are many benefits associated with a low-sugar lifestyle: lowered risk of illness and disease, steps toward weight loss and obesity prevention, and improved dental health (AKA a trip or two fewer to the dentist), to name a few. Limiting sugar can actually reduce hunger and cravings while boosting energy and enhancing mental clarity.
