Doing Dessert the Healthy Way: Adaptogenic Ingredients that nourish your body from the inside out.

Unlike normal sweet treats, adaptogenic desserts are designed not to dump you in a sugar coma or leave you crashing during your post-meal work lull. Rather, these desserts are proven to balance your hormones and energy levels with various macronutrients, micronutrients, and trace minerals that are found in the ingredients. An adaptogen is a plant or herb with a non-specific action on the body's physiology, useful for helping the body adapt to stress.

The four main actions of adaptogens are that they:
(1) help strengthen physical endurance;
(2) help improve energy levels;
(3) help balance hormones, and
(4) reduce cortisol, also known as the "stress hormone."

The ingredients in each of RUANI’s taste sensations have been carefully selected not only for their flavor but also for their adaptogenic properties, which allow your body to adjust to a variety of stressors and maintain a state of balanced wellness throughout your day.


Kicking sugar crashes to the curb: Organic Coconut Sugar

Refined sugar is bad for you. You know it, we know it, everyone who's ever checked their blood sugar after a meal knows it. We are all too familiar with sugar highs and headaches that come standard with refined complex sugars. These sugars are extremely harmful to our wellbeing, which is why we proudly reject refined and artificial sugars, using organic coconut sugar instead. With a glycaemic index almost half of that of regular refined sugar, and containing a wealth of vital nutrients like iron and potassium, coconut sugar is tasty enough to curb that sweet tooth without leaving you with a host of undesirable side effects.

Get your good fats here! - Avocado Oil

Looking to lower your blood pressure, decrease your cholesterol, and achieve overall cardiac health? A natural oil extracted from the pulp of an avocado, avocado oil is high in antioxidants and oleic acid, which is an omega-9 fatty acid that can improve heart health. As a great source of Vitamins A and E, the organic avocado oil we use in our products doesn’t just work internally - it helps give you radiant, glowing skin for a healthier and happier you!

Clucking your way to a healthier heart - Organic Eggs

Eggs are a key part of any healthy diet and are considered to be one of the most nutritious foods in the world. Containing a bit of almost every nutrient needed by the human body, organic eggs are the ideal way for us to add an extra healthy punch to our products. They have also been shown to be one of the best dietary sources of choline, which is a nutrient that is vital for brain function and the formation of cell membranes. Pasture-raised organic eggs come from chickens that are allowed to forage freely outside, eating their natural diets instead of being cooped up in small cages, so they can be enjoyed completely guilt-free!

Waving goodbye to wheat - Non-GMO Almond Flour

The world has come a long way from being held hostage by wheat-based flours and baking ingredients, and we have embraced the wonderful benefits of non-GMO almond flour in our delectable desserts. We’ve banished the gluten in favor of this worthy low-carb, high-flavor substitute, which is packed full of Vitamin E and magnesium to give your body the nutrients that it craves Plenty of fiber means that your gut will be happy and healthy, too with a perfectly sweet and nutty taste that we all enjoy in a premium dessert.

Dive into indulgence - Organic Vegan Chocolate

Originally a South American superfood treasured by the Aztecs and Incas, chocolate has become synonymous with a generic sugar-laden snack that provides a moment of ecstasy for hours of pain. We're bringing chocolate back to its former health-boosting glory by using organic vegan chocolate in our products, providing a chemical-free punch of rich, velvety flavor loaded with essential minerals like iron, copper, and manganese.

Flavorful goodness - Organic Cocoa Powder

Rich in antioxidants, the organic cocoa powder that we use in our products is a great source of magnesium, which is already present in your body and helps transport vital nutrients like iron. With a low glycaemic index that won’t cause dangerous spikes in blood sugar or contribute to weight gain, organic cocoa powder is the ideal choice when it comes to adding flavor and health benefits without sacrificing taste. In fact it's the key ingredient that supports all others in creating our signature rich flavors, bringing with it a host of health benefits due to the presence of flavanols and polyphenols.

Building your body’s defenses - Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder

Forming part of the traditional Indian Ayurveda system of medicine, the Ashwagandha plant is an adaptogenic herb used for centuries to treat a range of conditions and promote overall wellness by relieving anxiety, boosting physical strength, and reducing inflammation. Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder forms a key component of every product we offer and can be used to help improve your wellbeing by tackling stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue. Ashwagandha has also been linked to reduced levels of cortisol and other stress hormones, while helping you to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

The essence of the ocean - Sea Salt

An innocuous ingredient, sea salt comes from humble beginnings in the ocean to provide the perfect finishing touch to any decadent dessert. It does more than just enhance the flavor and balance the other ingredients, though. The purest and least refined type of salt, sea salt is full of nutrients and minerals that supercharge your immune system, improve cardiac function, promote digestion and balance your body’s electrolyte levels. Sea Salt is free of additives, making it a pure and natural ingredient that can be enjoyed regularly.

Wake up and go - Organic Coffee

Giving you that kick of caffeine to supercharge your energy levels, the coffee in our desserts is certified organic, meaning that you get all the benefits of this invigorating ingredient without the nasty fertilizers and pesticides. Organic coffee does more than just add a pep to your step - it also assists in maintaining cardiovascular health and, in some cases, protecting against diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. Organic coffee is also an antioxidant powerhouse that reduces inflammation and improves cognitive function, leading to greater mental clarity and improved mood.
