Dr. Coy's Health Foods, a family run business based in County Wicklow, is passionate about positive eating and a healthy lifestyle. Founder Alison Stroh saw a gap for a truly healthy snack as her research showed that snacking is where we slip up in trying for better nutrition. So in 2012 she approached Dr. Johannes Coy, an award-winning German oncologist, to propose offering chocolate with certified health benefits to the market. After her brother, a national cycling champion, temporarily ended up in a wheelchair following a cycling accident, she recruited him to assist in building the fledgling business.
We love how natural foods have energy-giving properties that don’t only make us happy when we eat them, but make us feel better all day. We began – where else! – with chocolate, a collection of utterly divine chocolate bars in a selection of irresistible flavours, made using naturally derived good sugars and vitamin E. Based on medical research Dr. Coy’s offers an innovative, patented "Nutritional Chocolate Bar" which has lower effects on blood glucose levels compared to chocolate containing sugar. The bar is high in fibre and vitamin E and is gluten and lactose free.
From there we broadened out to other special edibles, made using nuts, fruit and more of our guilt-free chocolate. We then moved to our specially selected organic coconut oil, one of nature’s great superfoods, with a wide variety of uses. We also offer the finest organic bouillon and flours, to create the foundations of countless healthy meals and dishes, so that we can cook and indulge ourselves and our families, guilt-free. We would love you to join us in our passion for finding and creating the best and most delicious health-giving natural foods.
