A delicious and healthy chocolate treat made from buckwheat, which is gluten free and has an alkalising effect on the body.

Handmade in Melbourne, Loving Earths Chocolate Buckinis are a healthy chocolate treat. Crafted from a dehydrated blend of Raw Cacao Powder, low GI (35) Coconut Sugar, Coconut Chips and buckwheat, we add a choice selection of our favourite superfoods to complete the mix.

Buckwheat looks like a grainy cereal and sounds like some kind of wheat but surprisingly enough, it is none of those. It is actually the seed of a fruit. In fact, buckwheat is not related to wheat at all, it comes from the sorrel, knotweed and rhubarb family.

Buckwheat does not contain any gluten which makes it a great alternative for people with an intolerance for the stuff. It has a high protein content, has all essential amino acids and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. This is particularly important since the body cannot produce essential amino acids on its own and depends entirely on food sources to get them.

To activate buckwheat, we soak it, wash and rinse it, then dehydrate it at low temperatures (under 40 degrees celcius). This allows for easier digestion and absorption of nutrients.

Our Buckinis boxes are printed with vegetable based inks on 100% post consumer recycled fiber. These boxes are recyclable.

The Inner Bag is compostable and made using renewable resources such as non-GMO corn and wood cellulose. The bag is compostable only under conditions where heat, water, soil, oxygen and microorganisms are present. This high barrier packaging is perfectly suitable to keep your Buckinis fresh and crunchy and does not contribute to landfill if disposed off properly this is something, which we are very proud of!
