ENCAS – Gourmet, Healthy, and Natural Sweet Treats
Healthy eating has never been more on trend. Veganism is on the rise across the globe, celebrities are quick to point out their dairy free, wheat free lifestyles and social media is awash with images of ‘free from’ foods – but as a result, the market has become saturated by imported products claiming to be ‘healthy’, ‘organic’ and ‘low-fat’. This has left many customers confused, settling for unsatisfying food choices and snacks.
ENCAS, which means ‘snack’ in French, is changing the face of healthy snacks, focusing on delivering a nutritious and delicious indulgent sweet treat to customers. ENCAS focuses on ingredients, quality and preparation methods that preserve the unique nutritional value of their products. In addition, they appreciate the importance of good design, with each sweet treat beautifully crafted and packaged by artisans in Dubai, every bite looking as good as it tastes.
For ENCAS healthy eating is not about counting calories but instead focuses on the health benefits of authentic, natural and unprocessed ingredients. All their products are paleo, vegan-friendly and free from gluten, dairy, grains, and refined sugar.
From where it all started…
ENCAS was born in 2016, when founder Justine Dampt, was diagnosed with a number of health problems including a poor immunity system. She was faced with having to learn a new way of eating but did not want to compromise on taste and the physical beauty of food. Justine, a native of France, had grown up on decadent desserts such as creme caramel, Mousse au chocolat and Macarons and was becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the bland taste of “healthy” snacks and the uninspiring style and aspect of the products and their packaging.
After experiencing numerous food intolerances and a poor immune system, Justine had to learn a new way of eating and quickly realized that many ‘free from’ ranges were filled with additives whilst all-natural snacks tended to taste bland and not at all gourmet. ENCAS was created with taste and beauty at the forefront, with every product handcrafted in Dubai. She started with a plant-based diet (free of gluten, refined and processed foods and mostly vegan). However, her sensitivity to gluten, fructose, and lactose made eating sweets bites and desserts nearly impossible. She quickly realized that many of the “free from” range was made of preservatives, additives, and a ton of ingredients’ whose names are impossible to pronounce.
The ENCAS Collection
The carré Collection (French for ‘square’), is made of 100% natural ingredients, using no preservatives, additives, grains, refined sugar or animal products and are available in four flavor variants. The individual box, containing four scrumptious bite-sized squares is the perfect self-gift after a long day, whilst the ‘From Dubai With Love’ boxes make the perfect edible gift for loved ones and friends. Justine and her team are currently working on several new product ranges, to be launched soon.
ENCAS’ current product ranges include their Carré selection, available in four different flavour variants and three different sizes, individual (4 mini bites) or the Dubai With Love selection box containing 12 or 36 mini Carrés as well as their new range of delicious spreads, ideal for adding that sweet indulgence to your yogurt/oatmeal based breakfast or your mid-afternoon snack.
