Cacao or cocoa? That is the question. While cocoa powders and processed chocolate have undergone high heat processing that destroys a lot of nutrients; unprocessed, raw cacao powder retains its phytochemicals and minerals, which means you’re getting maximum health benefits when you enjoy it.
Cacao, one of the richest sources of antioxidants, is known for its wide range of properties and benefits. Cacao has been consumed as a nutritive and health promoting beverage or food for more than 3,400 years. Modern research shows that cacao may reduce free radical damage and support heart health - whilst easing menstrual and inflammatory discomfort. Cacao products may also improve your mood and sense of well-being.
Raw cacao makes a healthy snack and is delicious in smoothies, desserts and hot drinks. There’s no wonder Spanish traders called this super food “Black Gold” while the Aztecs named it the “Food of the Gods”!(The Latin name for cocoa - Theobroma - literally means, “food of the gods.”)
