Sacred Cacao Bean Skins / Husks

Heirloom Arriba Nacional Ecuadorian Raw Cacao Beans

Sacred Chocolate® is the only chocolate maker in the world that includes the nutritionally valuable SKINS/husks of the cacao bean in its chocolate. Due to a special proprietary cleaning method, we are afforded this rare opportunity.  In most cases, these HEIRLOOM ARRIBA NACIONAL ECUADORIAN CACAO BEANS are so clean they are mistaken for almonds!  Traditionally, these skins are winnowed away from the whole bean and sold as food for chickens or to fertilizer companies. Just the fact they are sold as a nutritional item, indicates the importance of fully understanding what exactly is in the skin or husk of the cacao bean. Because of channeled information received in 2006 from the late well known and reputable medium, Laurel Steinhice, Sacred Chocolate® believes that the SKIN/husk of the cacao bean has many nutritionally beneficial properties, including but not limited to, assisting the human body in its own production of stem cells. It is also believed that the skin is very high in mineral content, especially iron. It is common sense to assume the nutritional value of this important part of the cacao bean since the skin/husk/rind of many seeds, fruits, and vegetables have been documented to have a high concentration of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phyto-nutrients. For example, it is known that the skin/husk of a sesame seed has the majority of the high levels of calcium found in sesame seeds. It is also known that the rind of the mangosteen is extremely high in antioxidants. These are but a few of the many examples of this well known finding. One interesting fact to note is that in Central and South American indigenous cultures it is believed that the inner bark of the cacao tree has certain nutritional chemistry that can reverse male pattern baldness. In the future, Sacred Foods, LLC intends to do more research into the exact nutritional content of the skin/husk of the cacao bean.
