Originating in the Aztec region, raw cacao is one of the most sought after superfoods known to man.
Obtained from the crushed core of the cacao bean, raw cacao contains a wealth of minerals and antioxidants.
Mature cacao pods are removed from the tree by hand, split open and the seeds are scooped out to be fermented for a week. The beans are dried under the sun and broken into small crunchy nibs.
Cacao is rich in essential minerals, including magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus. This ancient superfood is rich in antioxidants as well; Cacao beans contain 10,000 milligrams (10 grams) per 100 grams of flavonol antioxidants. This is a whopping 10% antioxidant concentration level! This makes cacao one of the richest sources of antioxidants of any food. Enjoy on their own or as a dairy-free alternative to chocolate chips.
Our cacao is organically grown by traditional methods from two locations: Southeast Mexico, once land of the Aztec and Mayan cultures and from Peru, home of the ancient Inca culture.
