Want to know more about the health benefits of cacao powder?

Cacao is actually raw chocolate, made by drying Cacao Theobroma beans at low temperatures.  The better known product, cocoa, has been through a number of processes, including roasting at high temperatures, before sugar is added to create the chocolate bar, which often contain less than 40% cocoa solids.

The ‘superfood’ status of raw cacao is due largely to its exceptional anti-oxidant rating, meaning it has high propensity to reduce free radicals, thereby protecting cell membranes, reducing inflammation and slowing aging, amongst other benefits. 

Cacao also contains substances including anandamide and phenylethylamines, which may improve concentration and are reported to have mood lifting properties, which may be further augmented by the presence of the amino acid, Tryptophan, the precursor to mood stabilising neurotransmitter, serotonin.   Other nutrients in cacao include magnesium, essential for cardio-vascular health and energy production; and calcium, required for healthy bones.
