Raw Cacao: The Superfood Par Excellence
The amazing chocolate products from Sacred Chocolate® start out as raw cacao beans or nuts. These are the seeds of raw cacao fruit that grow on tropical cacao trees in natural rainforests. Raw cacao is one of the most, if not THE most, nutrient rich and complex Superfoods in the world!
The biggest problem with most chocolate makers is that they overcook the raw cacao beans in a high-temperature roasting process that destroys a significant amount of their valuable health supporting properties.
Sacred Chocolate® is the first chocolate maker in history to create incredibly tasting, organic, stone ground chocolate products using raw cacao beans roasted at low temperatures! Sacred Chocolate® is also first company in the world to include the nutritionally rich skins or husks of raw cacao beans in its products.
Raw Cacao: Proven Health Benefits
Chocolate made from raw cacao beans can be viewed as a health food! It is one of the richest sources of polyphenol antioxidants and magnesium of any major food. Raw cacao beans have ten times more antioxidants than blueberries, twenty times more than red wine and thirty times more than green tea.
If chocolate from raw cacao is not degraded through overcooking, processing, etc., it will contain numerous healthy flavonoids, which are linked to cardiovascular health and longevity. Studies have shown that flavonoid-rich raw foods, such as raw cacao, can lower the rates of LDL cholesterol, blood pressure, heart disease and cancer.
