All chocolate originates from the cacao pod. Usually, the poor cacao is roasted, combined with sugar, slapped about a bit, heated up, heated up some more then mixed with emulsifiers! All it's cacao superness, gone. Yet historically humans revelled in it's rawness. The ancient Aztecs believed eating raw cacao blessed them and had an annual festival to celebrate it. They even traded it as money. We’re determined to get raw cacao and all its goodness back on the menu.
The energiser -our cacao is a great source of magnesium, phosphorus and iron helping to keep a normal metabolism and reduce tiredness and fatigue.
The protector -the iron and zinc in our cacao helps us maintain our immune system and zinc also helps protect our cells from oxidative stress. As an added bonus, cacao is packed full of flavonoids.
The health keeper -our cacao is a good source of fibre helping to keep our digestion proper. The magnesium, phosphorus and zinc, between them are good for our bones, teeth, skin and vision. Magnesium, iron and zinc are good for the mind and cell division. Magnesium even has added benefits of helping electrolyte balancing (keeps us functioning at our best). Wow!
The builder - our cacao is high in protein helping us to maintain and grow muscle. The magnesium in chia helps with protein synthesis (breaking down and absorbing protein) and keeps the muscles working normally.
The diet satisfier - protein also helps us to feel fuller for longer, good for satiety.
OUR CACAO PROMISE
Organically grown in Peru and raw processed (our cacao isn’t roasted). With the nutrients intact you experience all the raw chocolate goodness – and none of the guilt. Just as nature intended!
Our cacao beans are removed from the pod, gently fermented, washed and dried naturally to loosen skins. The skins are then removed and beans broke into cacao nibs. Cocoa butter is cold pressed from the nibs leaving a ‘cake’ which we mill into pure raw cacao powder. It’s fiddly, but means you get raw cacao goodness ready to go.
100% raw organic cacao powder and nothing else. Soil Association certified and Vegan Society registered for that extra peace of mind.
RAW CHOC YOURSELF!
Chocolatise your diet for a nutrient boost:
Blendinto smoothies or protein shakes for a raw choc power drink (little tip - goes well with our hemp protein).
Sprinkleover breakfast granola or muesli for a chocolate twist.
Whiskcacao powder with hot or cold nut milk and a drop of agave or coconut nectar for a delicious hot chocolate or milkshake.
Mashwith banana, avocado and vanilla for a delicious raw cacao pudding.
Make raw chocolate (you'll have to look this one up).

ACAI BERRY PURPLE POWER We love purple. In nature purple usually looks great, smells great and tastes great. Purple fruit is often high in antioxidants and flavenoids, in particular anthoycyanin (the stuff that makes it purple) - think blueberries, plums, grapes. And acai berries are no...

After finding it incredibly difficult to find any protein bars in shops without added sweeteners and other nasties I searched online, found Body Me and haven't looked back. The bars are delicious and filling and leave me feeling great. Definitely recommend!
We've really enjoyed the 'naked' organic plant protein blend. It dissolves and blends really nicely and doesn't alter the flavor of whatever you're blending it with. The consistency is quite smooth. I recommend setting up a 'subscription' to receive a nice discount!
Having a penchant for sweet treats, but trying to move away from heavily processed foods these are just the ticket. Delicious and in convenient sized portions, I keep them on my desk as well as in my gym bag.
Ethically and nutritionally, you're not going to find a better vegan protein powder than this. It has the correct, recommended combination of brown rice, pea and hemp protein to provide all the essential amino acids you'd find in whey protein. All organic of course.
I use the naked blend in my smoothies. It mixes easily. There is a slight change in texture but no taste change. Noticeably better than other powders I have tried.
Great product that really aids my training as a gymnast and has become a part of my regular fuel of energy and protein for my sessions. Absolute bonus that they taste great too! P.S chocolate orange is my recommendation.
Searching for a reasonably priced organic protein powder online, I came across BodyMe's version and decided to try it. I was a quick convert - the taste is good, especially if mixed with fruit, nuts seeds and oats, as I have it each morning. In fact, it is now a firm breakfast fixture and sets me up for the day with an easily digestible protein, as I don't eat dairy.
What is more, anyone I have dealt with in the company is incredibly helpful, friendly and quick to respond. Can happily recommend both the company and their protein powder to anyone looking to supplement their diet with good quality products.
So far I have only ordered the protein bars and the vegan protein powder but I am very pleased with the products regarding both taste and ingredients. The BodyMe team is incredibly helpful and nice which, alongside the good products, is a great bonus.
Have used almost all Vegan Proteins in the market and can definitely say this is my n1. Great taste, dissolves easily even in cold drinks and without lumps. I use it in fruit & veggies smoothies, but also mix it with my oats.
Only problem, I cannot find it in Thailand where I currently live, so have to wait my vacations back in Europe to get it... :(
BodyMe bars never disappoint and provide convenient quick fix of goodness whilst on the go. Perfect for those of us who rarely have spare time to prepare healthy snacks between meals or travel alot. Thanks BodyMe
A couple of my clients tried this product and recommended it so I thought I'd give it a go and was very pleasantly surprised by how good it is. I add this to a savoury smoothie each morning and it doesn't mask the taste of the veggies. Very pleased.
I brought all the flavours available to try and have to say they were sooooooo delicious and also filling so great fro breakfast on the go or an afternoon snack. Definitely going to order some more!!!!
I have tried other protein powders but not found them very palatable. BodyMe Protein powder is an excellent consistency, blending well into my smoothies and delivers the protein punch I need as part of my essential nutrition - along with BodyMe protein bars! It will be a regular order from me..
Review title says it all really. Both my mum and I are particularly loving the mint bars. Easy on the stomach, cocoa helps awaken things a bit, protein feels useful and absorbable and very tasty with refreshing mintiness that is neither over the top nor too little......nicely balanced. Plus satisfaction of knowing it's organic. What's not to love!
This protein powder blends well and tastes great. I purchased the cinnamon option which I blend with banana and oat milk. I do have to add a bit more cinnamon myself but overall this is a great product and tastes just as good as a much more expensive version I purchased for a while.
It would be great if you could come up with an Alkalising green juice that tasted good too!!
These bars are really amazing. I have found it so hard to find any vegan, gluten free protein bars that I actually want to eat - and I have tried many. The BodyMe bars taste like a guilty treat. So far I am crazy for the Cacao and Mint / Orange. The customer service has been absolutely fantastic and great to know that all the ingredients are ethically sourced.
I've done plenty of research on vegan protein bars, in that I've tried an awful lot of them. My search is now over. The BodyMe bars have no compromises, ethically or nutritionally. So I was really hoping they would taste ok. It turns out they taste fantastic! Not the cheapest, but worth every penny.
I absolutely LOVE these bars! They are my favourite of all the brands that I have tried. Perfectly moist and not too sweet and they are filling enough to keep me going. I am so glad I found them. Customer Service has been great too so all around am a very happy customer!
