Health & nutrition benefits

Like most nuts, hazelnuts are rich in monounsaturated fats like oleic acid, which is great for heart health. They are also a good source of magnesium, calcium, vitamin E, and B vitamins. There’s evidence they may be good for brain health as well. Chocolate is rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, and our keto-friendly chocolate has additional MCTs to boost ketosis.
