What’s the difference between Cadbury chocolate and the chocolate we make? A few different reasons but one of them being cacao!

The difference between cocOA and cacAO is simple.  Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing cacao (unroasted cacao beans). The process keeps the living enzymes in the cacao and removes the fat (cacao butter)

Cocoa looks the same but has been roasted at high temperatures which sadly changes the molecular structure of the bean, reducing the enzyme content and lowering the nutritional value.

Cacao (the amazing superfood) has an unbelievable amount of health benefits. Giving you many reasons TO EAT CHOCOLATE… in moderation of course.

For example, cacao:

– lowers insulin resistance
– protects your nervous system
– reduces rick of cardiovascular disease
– reduces blood pressure
– is an antioxidant
– boosts your mood – it increases certain neurotransmitters, the same chemical that is released when we experience deep feelings of love
– is rich in magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, zinc and manganese
