In an effort to keep my reviews objective based on health topics, I structure each in the same way and allow my opinions to come through in the "Bottom Line" at the end. Here are my findings for IsaDelight.
IS IT ORGANIC?
I don't see any evidence that this chocolate is organic.
WHAT BEANS DO THEY USE?
They don't explain where they get their beans. They don't mention the quality of their beans, so I would assume they use the common forastero beans unless I learned otherwise.
HOW IS IT PROCESSED?
They do not call their chocolate raw, but they do say that they use a low-temperature process for their cocoa elements.
WHAT SWEETENERS ARE USED?
They simply list sugar, so unless I learn otherwise, I presume this is a standard refined sugar.
IS IT FAIR TRADE?
IsaDelight doesn't appear to be certified fair trade. The company claims that their chocolate is 100% ethically sourced, but I don't see any 3rd party assurance about this.
My biggest disappointment with this chocolate is that it appears to use common, refined sugar. I appreciate the fact that they say they use a cold temperature process, and will give them the benefit of the doubt that they are ethically trading even though there's no fair trade certification. The chocolate doesn't seem to be organic, and there's no reason to believe it's made with the highest grade criollo beans.
I have never tried IsaDelight, so I'm not sure what the experience is like.
