LEONE GREZZO CHOCOLATE MADE WITH ONLY THREE INGREDIENTS
Fine selection of home-roasted cocoa beans, raw cane sugar, vanilla in pods with no addition of cocoa butter and soy lecithin. An uncompromising process that enhances the pure taste of cocoa and its benefits.
Pastiglie Leone don’t use mass of pre-processed cocoa. The secret of a unique taste comes from the best variety of cocoa beans that we mix and roast internally.
UNREFINED CHOCOLATE: IMPERFECT BUT AUTHENTIC
A possible surface unevenness and a delicate grainy texture are peculiar features of distinction.
GLUTEN FREE – LACTOSE FREE – WITHOUT SOY LECITHIN – NO COCOA BUTTER
DELICIOUS TASTED AS HOT CHOCOLATE
Stone-ground chocolate is delicious tasted in pieces, but it is even better appreciated as a traditional hot chocolate.
Once upon a time, and still nowadays in South American food culture, hot chocolate was made with chocolate pieces rather than cocoa powder as it is the fashion in Europe, because cocoa powder was invented in the middle of the XIX century. Being naturally rich in fibres, stone-ground chocolate does not require further thickening agents (like starch, flour or carrageenan’s), thus being an intense cup of hot chocolate, highly digestible.
