We invite all the sweet lovers to share with us our common passion for snacks! We are truly passionate about creating delicious treats and mixed snacks, good for your health and respectful of your diet!
Our recipes offer enough variety so you can choose salty or sweet options for your snacks and that you can implement with your diet. Many of our products are dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free diets and more.
Nowadays, we use different substances and liquids to sweeten beverages and foods. But for many centuries, honey was the only sweetener of the world. Since ages of time, the sugar cane has traveled all around the globe with mankind. Until the 18th Century it was an expensive and delicate product but became massively used with the exploitation of sugar beet and industrial refineries.
Originally from New Guinea, the sugar cane migrated quickly to the South West of Asia and the interest for it just kept growing. Over the years and the industrialisation, its use changed and improved. The process of extracting sugar from cane and beet is much the same, except that the sugar cane is first crushed while the sugar beet is sliced. The crushing then the pressing of the sugar cane is done in powerful mills. It extracts the juice which contains all the sugar. The sugar from the beets is extracted by osmosis in diffusion cylinders through which hot water is circulated. As it passes through the beet slices, the water becomes increasingly sweet. In both cases, a concentrated juice is obtained in which crystals of pure sugar form on cooling: this is crystallization. Whether it comes from beets or cane, table sugar or white sugar is the same product: sucrose.
Nature is providing us with so many ingredients to play with!
Nuts and seeds are good sources of protein, healthy fats, fibers, vitamins, and minerals.
Delicious L’Orenta Sweets
They help regulate food intake and help burn energy, which is why roasted almonds or Brazilian nuts are greatly appreciated by active people and athletes. The unsaturated fats and other nutrients prevent the apparition of heart diseases.
Consumed with moderation with a balanced diet, dried fruits are amazing snacks if you struggle adding some vitamins and fibers to their diets. You can easily add several dried strawberries to your yogurt! They help lower blood pressure, regulate blood sugar, decrease inflammation and increase a sense of fullness.
The best combo for your body (and your soul!) is to actually mix your favorite nuts and dried fruits! Our powerful vitamin fruit mix contains golden raisins, dried cranberries, chopped dates, diced apples and diced apricots! What else can you ask for?

We kept the best for last: our chocolate treats! We completely take advantage of the fact that chocolate has an amazing taste AND health benefits! Are there three types of chocolate?
- Dark chocolate is a mixture of cocoa mass, cocoa butter and sugar. It must contain at least 35% cocoa. Our client’s favorites are the dark chocolate almonds, the dark chocolate toffee almonds and the dark chocolate covered espresso beans (perfect for the coffee break).
- Milk chocolate is composed of the same ingredients as fondant chocolate to which powdered milk or condensed milk are added. It is impossible to be disappointed with our milk chocolate banana chips, milk chocolate raisins or milk chocolate sea salt caramel almonds.
- White chocolate is a preparation based on cocoa, milk and sugar. It does not contain cocoa paste. Would you choose the eggnog almonds, the white chocolate toffee cashews or the white chocolate coconut almonds?
We cannot possibly say which chocolate is our favorite so we thought it was a better idea to create delicious recipes with each and every one!
