Hi! My name is Adeshree Annamallay. I’m the founder/Director of Godessi Limited.
I started this business because I wanted to help those with conditions that require special dietary substitutions. I myself have endometriosis, an illness that affects many women around the world.
I have teamed up with a specialist in food science, nutritionist, and a Michelin starred chocolatier, to create delicious chocolates free from dairy, gluten, soy and vegan friendly.
A Little About Me And Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a debilitating illness that causes severe pain. There is no cure for endometriosis, but from my own research I learnt that certain dietary changes can help to improve the condition.
According to well-known research, chemicals adversely affect endometriosis so it was important for me to create chocolates free from Lecithin, GMO, Unalkalised, Undeodorised and Preservatives. Soy is also known to impact detrimentally reproductive health and fertility in women. I realized that what we eat is an essential factor when it comes to maintaining our bodies and our good health.
I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult to make changes to my diet because I’m a fussy eater. Other chocolates available couldn’t fulfill my craving for yummy, unique, and comforting taste.
So, I thought why not blend in, some of my Indian spice to create my very own warm, original scrumptious chocolates and help other folks at the same time! And that’s how Godessi started.
Why The Name ‘Goddessi’?
As endometriosis is specifically a female affliction, the notion of a goddess had to be involved. Goddesses are historically associated with beauty, love, fertility, motherhood and health. In ancient times, some goddesses would use magical potions to make people feel better and even cure illnesses.
