SAN FRANCISCO– Alter Eco, a chocolate-centric, sustainability-directed food company that takes healthy indulgence to an entirely new level, will be showcasing its new plant-based Superdark Truffles at 2019 Natural Products Expo West. Featuring premium ingredients like silky-smooth 80 percent Swiss-made cocoa and nourishing coconut oil, new Superdark Truffles expand Alter Eco’s popular line of fair trade, organic truffles by bringing a decadent, vegan option to the chocolate aisle. Expo West attendees are invited to visit Alter Eco booth’s #2340 for samples and more information.
With just six simple ingredients, the new Superdark Truffles expand Alter Eco’s successful line of bite-sized truffles and make them even more accessible to consumers. Boasting just three grams of sugar per truffle, they are the perfect low-sugar, low-carb treat packed with powerful antioxidants found naturally in super dark 80 percent cocoa. They are also keto and paleo-friendly with nothing artificial, no soy ingredients, no refined sugars and no gluten for a guilt-free treat crafted with premium ingredients for conscious consumers.
Superdark Truffles are only 3 g of sugar per truffle. These irresistibly creamy, plant-based truffles boast 80 percent cocoa for a deeply fruity bite and satisfyingly smooth finish. Nourishing coconut oil unites with fair trade, organic chocolate for a decadent treat with a bold edge.
“With an increasing number of consumers opting for plant-based products and options lower in sugar, we knew it was time to offer health conscious consumers a vegan treat that tastes indulgent,” said Mike Forbes, CEO of Alter Eco. “Our new 80 percent Superdark Truffles are an innovative extension of our best-selling truffle portfolio and wildly popular Deepest Dark Super Blackout Bar, and we’re excited to introduce Expo West attendees to the new innovation.”
Alter Eco will also be showcasing its new Double Chocolate Coconut Clusters and Superdark Crisp Mint Bar at Expo West. These treats boast 85-90 percent cocoa and are uniquely crafted with high-quality ingredients like fruity cacao beans and nourishing coconut oil.
