Aiming to disrupt and revolutionize the healthy foods market, Los Angeles-based start-up RDCL Superfoods (pronounced “radical”) expands its product line with the debut of Super Cocoa. Super Cocoa is a nutritious way to enjoy hot chocolate, offering the same sweet, rich flavor and creamy consistency of traditional hot cocoa, but replacing the sugar and artificial ingredients with nutrient-dense, whole-food, plant-based ingredients that are completely new to this category.
Made with two types of real cocoa (organic pure Cacao and a rich Dutch-process Cocoa) for an indulgent flavor blend; loaded with 6 grams of organic pea protein per serving, plus organic vegetables (including kale, spinach, broccoli, beets, and cauliflower); fruits (such as blueberry, elderberry, and strawberry); and gluten-free ancient grains and seeds (such as oats, chia, and quinoa); this 100% plant-based beverage has only 1 gram of naturally occurring sugar. It’s easily and quickly made by mixing it with hot water or plant-based milk (it can also be enjoyed ice-cold like a chocolate shake).
“The hot cocoas we grew up with, and that are still typically served today, often include lots of bad-for-you ingredients that today’s consumers really don’t want,” says RDCL Co-Founder and CEO Donny Makower. “We knew there was a way to keep the same delicious, warming, nostalgic experience we all love while getting rid of the junk we don’t. So, we eliminated the hydrogenated oils, refined sugars, corn syrup, dairy, carrageenan and all the artificial ingredients that had found their way into commercial cocoas, and we replaced them with real, nutrient-rich, plant-based ingredients that are beneficial for optimal well-being.” As Zak Zaidman, RDCL’s Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, puts it, “we shouldn’t have to choose between eating nourishing whole foods and so-called ‘guilty pleasures.’ With Super Cocoa you can get the best of both worlds.”
