When healthy sweets taste like chocolate instead of something bland, it becomes more enticing to invest in our personal wellness. We deserve to feel strong and healthy without the typical torture it often takes to get there.
Do you know that the global chocolate industry is estimated to be valued at $127.9 billion in 2022? These statistics are enough to show people’s love for chocolate. Chocolate is no doubt a family favorite, but it’s often full of sugar and other unhealthy ingredients. But what if I told you there was a healthier chocolate option that was just as delicious?
Yes, you heard it right.
Dateolate is working to make healthier chocolate alternatives for families. Their chocolates are not only delicious but also nutritious.
Let’s learn more about it.
A Sweet Beginning
When Roya Javaherchi was a little girl in Iran, she was immersed in a culture that embraced and celebrated treats, especially chocolates. She also happened to come from a long line of diabetics, leading to dynamic and innovative family cooking in her household.
In place of many traditional sugary sweets, her mother and grandmother substituted dates in a variety of ways that became so beloved and nostalgic to her as she grew up. Her family had discovered a fruit replacement that so beautifully filled that craving for chocolate and sweets, all while contributing to their wellness.
Roya’s grandmothers taught her to incorporate date fruits into recipes as a substitute for sugar in a way that satisfied and delighted and yet preserved the original taste. She earned a bachelor’s degree in food science engineering and landed a job at a specialty company that helped her hone that craft.
After immigrating to the U.S. in 2013. Roya spent some time in various jobs until she ditched her 9-5 for a new life of glazing, melting, and taste testing—for quality control, of course.
Becoming skilled and masterful at creating decadent treats using healthy alternatives became about so much more than just delivering incomparably delicious flavor. It also became the solution to so many problems that it inspired her to share her creations by starting a brand named Dateolate that focuses on creating a healthy solution for chocolates.
The Sugar Problem
It’s no secret that many people avoid chocolate because of its high concentration of sugar. And those people who do indulge still struggle with the guilt of eating this much sugar. The consumers of dark chocolate often complain about the bitter taste, and if they don’t partake, they comment about missing the satisfaction that comes from eating chocolates.
Roya solved this problem by infusing dates into chocolates with a special formulation. The final product is sweet and tastes exactly like chocolate, but because of the creaminess of the date paste, it feels significantly more satisfying.
Dateolates are 90 percent natural date fruits, without nearly as much fat, sugar, or carbohydrates as typical chocolates. This means Dateolates much more diet friendly.
According to the National Confectioners Association, 91 percent of American families consume chocolate daily. On the other hand, the bad reputation of chocolate—it is high in sugar and leads to weight gain, for example—has made people feel guilty about eating it.
Despite what most people think, eating chocolate may have health benefits, but further research is needed to confirm that eating chocolate can improve people’s health.
But we know that a Datolate chocolate has health benefits because it is made with 90 percent dates. That means our chocolates have a lot of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
We have been able to make healthier chocolates and a more satisfying sweet for families. Dateolates can easily be used as a routine chocolate during the day and families no longer feel guilty of buying chocolate or giving sweets to their loved ones.
Datolate is a scrumptious, healthy chocolate treat. It is soft on the inside with delicate finely chopped dates and a creamy date paste, and the outside is drizzled with a layer of dark chocolate.
