Tag Archives: Udo’s Oil


“Bija Omega Truffles are a rich blend of omega-3 & -6 fatty acids and premium organic ingredients from around the world such as Peruvian chocolate and cocoa butter, and Madagascar vanilla beans.¬† Infused with the ideal 2:1 ratio of essential fatty acids, each exquisite piece nourishes both body and Spirit.” – Flora

I have always had a love affair with chocolate.¬† I am embarrassed to say that nearly every¬†holiday when I was a kid ended with me doubled over on the couch writhing in pain from literally eating ALL of¬†the chocolate I was given (usually by 11am).¬† I know my parents and sister and laughing reading this…oh memory lane!

Maybe that is¬†why I have to be so careful with chocolate now.¬† If I have more than one piece of chocolate I am usually not able to sleep and I get restless legs…is it possible to use-up your lifetime quota of chocolate when you are a kid?¬† If so, then I¬†have gotten¬†pretty close to it.

While at the Natural Products Expo West I was given a few samples of BIJA Organic (99%) Dark Chocolate Truffles.¬† These truffles are made by¬†Flora Inc.,¬†and they incorporate Udo’s Oil blend directly into the truffle.¬† I can promise you that you can not taste the oil at all.¬† These truffles are VERY good and creamy.¬†

While the company currently offers three truffle flavors; dark, milk, and white¬†(they debuted 2 more non vegan flavors at the show; raspberry filled and green tea filled), the Dark Chocolate Truffle is the only vegan truffle they offer.¬† These are definitely a “treat” and I would advise only having one piece MAX per day (each bar comes with 4 small chocolate pieces inside).¬† As far as chocolate goes, the mix of omegas included in this chocolate truffle definitely ups the health factor.¬† These particular¬†bars should be kept refrigerated, but my favorite way to have chocolate is frozen…it lasts longer in your mouth!

The bars are available at health food stores and can also be purchase on line (click here to buy).
