WHAT MAKES OUR CACAO SO SPECIAL?

Our Cacao is grown from the Criollo Cacao beans. This species of Cacao is known as ‘The King of Cacao’ due to low fermentation. Our Cacao is cleaned and dried at very low temperatures to prevent heating and loss of nutrients. It comes to you certified organic so you know it is free of pesticides, herbicides and radiation. This product is guaranteed 100% Cacao with no fillers or additives of any kind.

A NUTRITIOUS ENERGY BOOST

Various tribal cultures, including the ancient Aztecs, are known to have used this super food as a stimulant, mood-lifter and general source of nutrition. Cacao beans were even used as currency in Central America many centuries ago.

Stacked with flavonoids, antioxidants and essential minerals including large amounts of magnesium, the rich taste of organic cacao powder can be added to a wide variety of dishes to deliver an incredibly rich flavour along with a range of health benefits.

In general, this review invites the question: is dark chocolate legitimately considered a “health food”? The weight of evidence reviewed here would seem to support a qualified “yes.”  (Full Journal here)

RAW CACAO IS RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS

It has 4x the amount of antioxidants of goji berries, helping protect the body eradicate free radicals. Free radicals are unstable chemicals that damage cell membranes and attack healthy cells which can lead to disease and damage of the body. Raw cacao powder is so high in antioxidants it tops the ORAC chart (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), a rating system devised by the USDA to measure levels of antioxidants in food.

Along with its high antioxidant content, cacao powder contains a massive 10% total flavinoid content. Flavonoids can have a substantial positive impact on overall heart health, and are have been shown to prevent various types of cardiovascular disease. While in a study performed in 2017:

Researchers found altogether, research on the effects of cocoa and chocolate on human cognition, although at its preliminary stage, converges at pointing to cocoa as a new interesting nutraceutical tool to protect human cognition and counteract different types of cognitive decline, thus encouraging further investigations.

A NATURAL AND HAPPY HIGH

Raw cacao powder can help to encourage positive, happy feelings due to it containing pleasure-boosting chemicals. The neurotransmitters regulate the pleasure centre in the brain, and cacao powder has enough of these pleasure-boosting chemicals to provide a noticeable increase in mood and general feelings of well-being.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CACAO AND COCOA?

People often confuse Cacao with cocoa as they both come from the Coco bean. The difference is that cocoa is usually highly processed to the point where it loses a lot of its health benefits.

HOW TO CONSUME

Add 1 tablespoon (2g) to your favourite smoothies or milkshake or whip into chocolate balls, bake into breads, use to create savoury sauces, cakes, raw chocolate or chocolate mousse.

Raw cacao powder can be used 1:1 as a substitute for any recipe calling for cacoa powder.

    The Best

    I have never tasted Cocao as good as this. It’s rich, bitter flavour makes a delicious nightcap. Just mix with a little hot water, then add hot milk and sweeten to taste. The added bonus is that you know it it doing you good!

    Use of RawCacao powder

    It was found to be an excellent product in every way. Especially for us as we adore choc style rum truffles. The recipe we used with the Cacao powder was so easy to make but sadly so quick to disappear. Thoroughly recommended.

    My morning and night treat!

    I have been using this in the morning and evening in replacement of my tea. I have used other brands Cacao powders before and have always found them to be bitter. But this one is so smooth, tasty and no bitterness. Add little bit of Stevia and milk and you have your self a yummy indulging Hot Choc without the guilt. I bought myself 1KG and highly recommend you to try this. I will definitely be stocking up on some more in the future.
