Tree of Knowledge
Explore our Frequently Asked Questions—and find the answers you seek.
Where does the name NEWTREE come from?
Our name reflects our “NEW” and innovative approach to crafting responsible, indulgent chocolate and other delectable products. The word “TREE” symbolizes our use of all-natural ingredients, our belief in the power of nature to create harmony in our lives, and our commitment to preserve the planet.
Where are NEWTREE products manufactured?
NEWTREE products are developed, made and packaged in Belgium, the home of our global headquarters.
What makes NEWTREE different?
Our products are created as an invitation to savor life with no compromise. We combine exceptional flavor with ingredients that are good for you and help preserve the planet. The innovative foundational elements of NEWTREE include:
Flavor – We conduct a lengthy evaluation process to carefully select ingredients with delectable taste. Emphasis is placed on the balance between each flavor in a recipe, so that they enhance one another and do not compete or fade.
Health – Our recipe innovations focus on enhancing nutritional value through added fiber and beneficial ingredients, alongside reduced fat, sugar and calories – all without compromising on taste.
Sustainable ingredients – NEWTREE products are 100% natural, organic and fair trade. Our goal is to preserve, as closely as possible, the genuine tastes found in nature. Our products are GMO-free and have no additives or artificial ingredients.
Quality – The ingredients that we use, as well as the process in which our products are made is scrutinized for quality. We employ certified quality systems that are monitored regularly and engage in the best practices with the highest quality ingredients to consistently deliver exceptional products.
Responsibility – Beyond the sustainable nature of our ingredients, both our products and company are carbon neutral certified, meaning we offset our carbon use throughout our entire supply chain. And our passion for preserving the planet extends to every purchase. We donate 1 euro cent per product to support efforts in the Amazon, the lungs of our world.
What does it mean that NEWTREE is carbon neutral?
NEWTREE is a carbon neutral certified company committed to positively impacting our operations upstream and downstream. We involve suppliers and retail partners over the entire lifecycle of our products to ensure best practices. With the help of CLIMACT, the complete supply chain of all NEWTREE products has been offset—from raw materials production and manufacturing to transport, distribution and disposal. Each of these steps has been analyzed in terms of greenhouse gas emissions to bring NEWTREE in full compliance with the PAS2050 international standard for product carbon footprinting.
Why is Belgian chocolate better?
Gourmet, high quality chocolate is a Belgian tradition. Chocolate makers have inherited centuries-old traditional processes of transforming cacao beans and couverture into delicious chocolate. Belgium also has very strict parameters for the process to make chocolate that prohibits adding additional oils or artificial ingredients. At NEWTREE, we proudly utilize this process when crafting our flavorful chocolate innovations.
What is the cacao content of NEWTREE chocolate?
NEWTREE dark chocolate contains 66% cacao and our milk chocolate contains 50% cacao.
Is NEWTREE chocolate organic?
Yes, depending on the flavor, our chocolate is either USDA organic certified (contains at least 95% organic ingredients), or made with USDA organic chocolate (contains at least 70% organic ingredients). In addition, all our chocolate is organic certified by European Union standards.
Is NEWTREE chocolate fair trade?
Yes, our chocolate is fair trade certified by Fair Trade International (FLO).
Where does NEWTREE source its cacao beans?
Our organic and fair trade cacao beans come from small co-ops in Latin America. We use a proprietary blend of Peruvian Trinitario and Criollo cacao beans, along with Dominican Republic Hispaniola beans for a robust flavor foundation to craft our chocolate.
Is NEWTREE chocolate good for baking?
NEWTREE chocolate is great for baking. Our flavored chocolates add a special touch to your desserts. The flavor will soften slightly during baking but will remain deliciously detectable.
What is the shelf life of NEWTREE chocolate?
If properly stored, NEWTREE chocolate is guaranteed to remain fresh for 1 year.
How should I store chocolate?
Chocolate should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct heat, light or moisture. It is generally not necessary to refrigerate chocolate. We do not recommend freezing chocolate.
How much fiber is in NEWTREE products?
The natural and added fiber in our products is one of our most ingenious innovations. Our large NEWTREE chocolate bars contain 7g to 9g of fiber per serving, and our snack size chocolate bars have 5g to 7g of fiber per serving. By substituting wholesome fiber for some of the refined sugar found in traditional chocolate recipes, we create healthful indulgences with two to five times more fiber than regular chocolate bars. NEWTREE dark chocolate spreads boast 3g to 4g per serving and contain a natural fiber of chicory root (Beneo™), which has been shown in independent scientific research to help improve digestive health and calcium absorption in the body. Our waffle cookies are made with natural acacia fiber and contain 1g of fiber per serving.
What does non-GMO mean?
GMO stands for genetically modified organisms. Genetic modification involves a set of technologies that alter the genetic makeup of living organisms such as animals, plants or bacteria. Combining genes from different organisms is known as recombinant DNA technology and the resulting organism is said to be "genetically modified", "genetically engineered" or "transgenic."
All NEWTREE products are non-GMO, meaning they do not contain any genetically modified ingredients. Soy is a plant that is widely genetically modified. The soy lecithin we use as an emulsifier in our chocolate is certified 100% non-GMO and makes up less than 1% of our recipe.
Are NEWTREE products vegan?
Our NEWTREE dark chocolate bars are vegan, however they are manufactured on equipment that also processes milk-containing products and therefore may contain traces of milk.
Are NEWTREE products gluten-free?
All our NEWTREE dark chocolate spreads are free of gluten. Many of our chocolate bars are made with gluten-free ingredients; however all of our chocolate bars are made in the same facility and therefore may contain trace amounts of gluten.
Do NEWTREE products contain nuts?
NEWTREE waffle cookies and dark chocolate spreads do not contain nuts. We have two chocolate bars made with nuts: Almonds and Lime Granola, however all our chocolate bars are made in a facility that produces other products that do contain nuts. Despite a thorough cleaning between each individual production run, trace amounts of nuts may be present in the chocolate.
