Things you want to know! 

Q: Where are your mushrooms grown? 
A: Our extracts are globally sourced and made from certified organic mushrooms, grown naturally on substrate materials native to each particular mushroom. No sterile laboratories, sterile air, sterile growing environment or artificial lights. No unnatural substrates made of cereal grains or rice. Our mushrooms are grown in greenhouses with natural lighting and fresh air flow. We want our mushrooms to be grown the same way you want your food produced – on a farm tended by real people, not in a laboratory managed by technicians.
Q: Where are your products made?
A: We are proud to be manufacturing in our home state of Rhode Island, with an SQF-certified plant-based manufacturer with organic, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and non-GMO certifications. Nothing leaves our facility without rigorous quality inspections!
Q: Does your chocolate contain Caffeine?
A: Cacao naturally contains theobromine, which is a natural plant compound that mimics a stimulant, helping to lift mood, boost blood flow, improving focus and concentration. Compared to coffee, the caffeine/stimulant effects are more similar to green tea.
Q: Is Lore Keto approved?
A: To be considered keto-friendly, foods should be low in carbohydrates and sugars, moderate in protein, and high in healthy fats. Foods with less than 5 grams of net carbs (Net Carbs Total Carbs - Fiber - Sugar alcohols) per serving are considered very low carb and are typically suitable for a ketogenic diet. Long answer short, yes, our chocolate is keto-friendly. 
Q: Can you eat Lore when pregnant?
A: Mushrooms are safe to consume as food during pregnancy and may help prevent pregnancy-related diseases. It is, however, difficult to study herbs and other supplements in human pregnancy, so there is generally very little data on most supplements and natural compounds. As with any dietary changes or supplements, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before consuming.
Q: How is chocolate better for absorption than taking capsules?
A: On average, capsules only have a 7%-12% absorption efficiency. Most viable and powerful nutrients that facilitate health and wellness are wasted. Our chocolates' natural, organic fats significantly help increase absorption efficiency, delivering powerful benefits AND tasting delicious!
Q: What are adaptogenic mushrooms?
A: Adaptogenic mushrooms are a group of fungi that contain bioactive compounds known as adaptogens. Adaptogens are natural substances that help the body adapt to stressors, promoting balance and resilience.
Q: Is your chocolate fair trade?
A: Yes, we buy our cacao from a Certified Fair Trade with the X alliance co-op. However, we do not undergo the certification process for our products as we see it as an unnecessary expense. While many certifications are valuable, we invest our money into developing direct trade relationships that we verify with our eyes. Our farmers are paid fair trade wages, and beyond the certification, this co-op pays over fair trade prices.
