WHY WHOLE CACAO WITH SKINS?

Sacred Chocolate® includes Whole Cacao Beans with the SKINS/Husks of the bean included.  Due to channeled information obtained by Laurel Steinhice, we believe the SKINS/Husks (which are normally winnowed away and sold typically to chicken farms or fertilizer companies) contain certain nutrients that help promote stem cell growth in humans.  Like the skin of a sesame seed, cucumber, or potato we believe a concentration of important minerals and nutrients exist in this part of the cacao bean, and we therefore choose to include it in Sacred Chocolate®!
