The three ingredients are exactly what Ecila Sake Chocolate uses to make their distinct flavour.
How Sake and Chocolate Become The Perfect Pairing
First, the quality of the ingredients are top grade, explaining the fantastic aroma and unique texture of the chocolates. These are Canadian bite-size treats featuring locally bought ingredients. Buying local keeps ingredients rich, with no chemicals or freezing.
Second, the people behind the product are as much if not more amazing than the ingredients. Alice Ngan, founder of Ecila Sake Chocolates, pours her heart and soul into the creation of the chocolates. Using her level 3 WSET sake certification, she forms the golden ratio of sake to chocolate. The creativity and knowledge goes into the different core pieces of smooth ganache, spongey sake-kasu, and jiggly sake jello as well. All of these components come together with Alice’s expertise and immense passion for the craft of sake chocolates.
These sweets have proven health benefits
Yes, you heard right. The sake-kasu chocolates satisfy both a sweet tooth and a need for a little buzz. Moreover, the mix of protein, carbohydrates, and other nutrients packed in sake-kasu are proven to increase blood circulation, compensate for many of the amino acids our body doesn’t have, and creates acids. This means a reduction in blood clots, a boost in the immune system, and moisturized skin when consumed moderately.
