Determination and Perseverance. These are the two words that most accurately represent the guest and company on this episode of Ditch The Box – Guy Lopez and Healthy Chocolate Florida, LLC.
A specialty nutrition, chocolate and chocolate based nutritional supplements company, Healthy Chocolate Florida, LLC offers its 4NOGUILT® brand and multiple product lines as well as Private Labels. What sets them apart from other chocolate companies? Guy offers a novelty, proprietary, patent pending chocolate manufacturing process that uses birch wood Xylitol as its sole sweetener as well as in-house product development capabilities.
The Healthy Chocolate® concept was inspired by two of the co-founders of the company. One co-founder was a bone cancer survivor and had to take tons of supplements to keep his system in check. The other co-founder/co-author of patent pending process was diabetic. Together with a means to provide kids their daily vitamins, they both though, how can we make it more gentle for people fighting cancer to keep building their immune systems? What sweetener alternative can we use for diabetics? How to we make kids to take their vitamins every day? The answer was Xylitol. Xylitol is the exclusive sweetener in their unique chocolate couverture/platform that becomes a “delivery system” for supplements, nutrients, and vitamins.
The 4NoGuilt® Brand includes both the food line and the chocolate-based supplement brand. The food line, Naked Nature®, CHOCOBiotics® , are the definition of clean, conscious eating. Simple ingredients and a minimized manufacturing process make up their current and future products.
Listen above for the incredible story on Guy’s adventurous start to The Healthy Chocolate® company. From his escape from Cuba to seeking entrepreneurial freedom in America, his story is one of inspiration, determination, and perseverance that everyone will benefit from hearing.
