Most frequently asked questions

Flavour

Maestrani chocolate bars are manufactured without the addition of artificial flavours, apart from the Banana Split bar in which a natural flavouring is used for a fully rounded taste.

Diabetics

Our products may not be suitable for consumption by diabetics. Persons suffering from diabetes should consult their medical practitioner about dietary issues.

Emulsifier

The emulsifier we use is soya lecithin, which is also organically certified.

Experience

The Maestrani brand has over 160 years of experience, and over 35 years with organic products.

Colourings

The colours of the chocolate bars come solely from the use of fruit powder. We use no colourings.

Gluten

Weight

In order to create a specially crisp taste experience, all Maestrani chocolate bars are 80 grams in weight. The thin shape intensifies the taste experience and reinforces the superior character of the product. The irregular size of the individual tablets and the Maestrani logo in the centre of the bar characterise our products and give them their unmistakable appearance.

Price

The price of our Maestrani chocolate bars is more than the average for a standard bar of chocolate. This is because of the sophisticated manufacturing process, the use of first-class raw materials and the Fairtrade and Organic certification marks.
