Your Health In Mind
DARLENA Artisan Chocolates is proud to offer the most antioxidant rich chocolate experience with your health in mind. DARLENA strives to use all gluten-free ingredients. Several chocolates have no added sugar. When sugar is used, it is used sparingly with the best organic and minimally processed nutritional sources. DARLENA does not use glucose in any of its chocolates. Glucose has long been the standard used by most chocolatiers to keep the ganache and filling ingredients emulsified together. High levels of glucose can cause insulin resistance which could be a contributing factor to becoming diabetic or pre-diabetic.
