Discover NEOGOURMETS‘ innovation: the first chocolate bars naturally sweetened with fruit, without added sugars and without sweeteners.
Néogourmets is first and foremost the story of Gaëlle, David and their three children! Due to a health concern Gaëlle had to completely remove fast sugars from her diet. Initially experienced as a real constraint, it quickly became a new way of family life that they wanted to share!
The Néogourmets adventure began in 2018 with the creation of a biscuit factory certified BIO by ECOCERT in Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire , in the heart of Touraine. What follows is a human adventure made up of great encounters with a small team of enthusiasts who share the same values. They had the chance to cross paths with Chef Thierry Marx who immediately recognized himself in their project and values. It is therefore quite natural that he became a partner of the small start-up in 2019. Today, he is an integral part of the adventure and contributes to the development of all the recipes for cookies and chocolates.
With Neogourmets, no sweetener, no long list of ingredients and no weird names. Organic, good, natural and that’s it!
All the fruits are naturally sweet, so they have chosen to use some in their recipes to show that we can do without added sugars. Nature does things well… Let’s respect that!
All of their ingredients are carefully selected, locally as soon as possible, and everything is natural! No flavoring, preservatives or extracts. No need for a flavor enhancer when the ingredients are of high quality.
Neogourmets’ chocolate is:
- NATURAL : zero added sugars, zero sweeteners, the sweetness of the fruits to soften the carefully selected fair trade cocoa.
- BEAN-TO-BAR: back to authenticity. No ready-to-use chocolate like in the food industry: the beans are directly transformed into chocolate bars. Transparency, traceability and know-how for a goldsmith’s chocolate.
- FAIR : committed to guaranteeing the producers a fair price as well as favorable working conditions. Child labor is thus prohibited. Also fair to nature, the beans come from plantations that respect the environment and ecosystems. To complete this approach, the packaging is also 100% recyclable.
- ORGANIC : in order to offer you products in line with our values, all our ingredients are from organic farming. Carefully selected cocoa beans plantations respect nature and the biotope and exclude intensive cultivation.
