In line with their philosophy of creating functional foods with a nutritious makeover, Gytree's new powerhouse protein comprises the tantalising taste of Ghana cacao blended with the natural sweetness of monkfruit. Rich in flavonoids, most cacao behaves like an antioxidant that helps to neutralise harmful free radicals in the body. Ghana cacao, used by Gytree for its newly launched Chocolate flavour also contains a good amount of fiber, which aids in digestion and can help to prevent constipation. It can also help to control blood sugar levels, making it a good choice for those with diabetes or those at risk.


"Our customers love our protein and it's only natural that they want new flavours. Having built a delicious, effective protein with carotenoids and superherbs, we wanted to combine the antioxidant powers of high-quality cacao. And that's what makes our Chocolate flavour so special," says Swareena Shaw, Product Head, Gytree.

Enrich Your Body and Taste Buds 

Brace yourself for a refreshing punch of distinctive flavours that not only cater to your protein needs but also make you drool for more. Jam-packed with protein, you can enjoy this treat any time of the day, from kick-starting your morning to calming your late-night cravings. Remember, the body needs a regular supply of protein to keep those muscles strong and toned. 

“I have been a regular user of their plant protein and the cacao is a refreshing change in their offering. I loved it,” Prakriti Agarwal from Kolkata who works at a startup.

Unleash the Power of Monkfruit 

Why monkfruit you ask? Well, apart from its natural sweetness, this luscious fruit is known to have zero calories and zero glycemic index. That means, it's awesome for those trying to keep a check on their sugar levels. But the best part is, it doesn't compromise on the taste. 


Experience the Magic of Cacao 

And let's not forget about the cacao. Renowned as a superfood, cacao brings a depth of flavour, with a hint of bitterness that perfectly complements the sweetness of monkfruit. It's high in antioxidants, dietary fiber and a great source of protein. So, not only do you satiate your sweet tooth, you also score on the health meter. 

Ghana cacao is renowned for its high quality and numerous health benefits. It is rich in flavonoids, a type of antioxidant that helps to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body. This can help to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

"Our cacao is a taste enhanced by caramel, nutty, and intense flavour notes. This colour remains consistent in both dry and wet recipe applications," says Shaw.

Cacao is a source of magnesium

Ghana cacao is a great source of magnesium, a mineral that plays a crucial role in many bodily functions including muscle and nerve function, blood sugar control, and bone health. A magnesium deficiency can lead to a variety of health problems, so incorporating Ghana cacao into your diet can help to ensure you're getting enough of this important nutrient.


Another benefit of Ghana cacao is its high protein content. Protein is essential for building and repairing tissues, making hormones and enzymes, and is crucial for growth and development. By combining Ghana cacao with monkfruit, you can boost your protein intake even further.

How Ghana cacao is a gamechanger

Ghana cacao contains theobromine, a natural compound that has a mild stimulant effect, similar to caffeine. Theobromine can help to improve mood and energy levels, making Ghana cacao a healthier alternative to coffee or other caffeinated beverages.

Best of both worlds

All said and done, by combining monkfruit and cacao, Gytree aims to amplify the protein content in your diet. You get to enjoy the best of both worlds – a delectable taste and improved physical well-being. So, are you ready for this delightful and nutritious journey?
