UliMana is Decadent and Dairy Free

UliMana is a producer of handmade vegan (and therefore dairy free) truffles and spreads. According to their website, Uli is the name of the goddess from the Huna science who oversees the feminine domain and is also known as the "Goddess of Serenity". Mana means life force energy. When you have a lot of Mana you are healthy and vibrant. When speaking the name UliMana you are asking the goddess Uli for the blessing of life force energy and vibrant health. The folks behind UliMana wanted the name of their company to mean something positive and uplifting. They recommend saying it often as you savor their chocolate and have gratitude for the gifts bestowed upon you. I don't know about you but I don't need much encouragement to eat more chocolate.

UliMana was born in 2005 after being inspired by David Wolfe's book Naked Chocolate. They incorporate many superfoods previously praised here such as coconut oil, raw cacao, maca, hemp and goji berries. I have noticed that since eating only raw chocolate for many years, when I occasionally have a bite of mainstream chocolate candy it tastes like wax.

UliMana products are free of dairy but not free of health promoting superfoods.

UliMana's truffles are sweetened with agave, honey or coconut nectar. Agave-sweetened truffle flavors include Dark Cacoa, Mayan (which is spicy), Peppermint, Coconut and Hemp. Honey-sweetened truffles include Green, Nut, Ormus and Cacao Nib (for a crunchy truffle). Their latest products include Coconut Nectar truffles and Harvest Nectar truffles. If you are looking for the healthiest truffle possible you may want to try their Chia Moon Drops.

Manna or spread flavors include Maca, Goji and Raw Cacoa Truffle Butter. You can spoon them out of the jar or spread them on your favorite gluten-free bread (this is not a bad idea if you are the recipient of some rather dry gluten-free bread that could use some "help"). Another option is to add a spoonful to a cup of warm vanilla hemp or almond milk.

You can find UliMana products at Karyn's Fresh Corner in Lincoln Park or you can order on-line from their site (where they offer sample packs of 2 truffles with your choice of flavors).
