BASED IN: NEW YORK
I am Konstanze, I live in New York. I am a native of Austria who loves sweets.
While working and traveling as a professional make-up artist, I found my hectic schedule began to affect my health so I began eating organic foods and practicing yoga. However, I could not give up the food which made me the happiest. I started to experiment creating my own power foods from raw, organic ingredients that were free of gluten, dairy, sugar, and GMOs. This is how 'CocoRau®' was born. Each attractive, delicious, powerful food bite is individually hand-crafted and each one is brimming with anti-aging nutrients that are good for your whole being.
CocoRau is a superfood because of our choice to create a product that is made of 100% raw and organic cacao, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, local honey, Himalayan sea salt, vanilla powder. These ingredients all abundant in vital minerals like magnesium, potassium and iron, and are rich in vitamins A, C, E, and B." - Konstanze Zeller (via cocorau.com)
