Cacao Powder is made by simply cold pressing cacao beans at low temperatures in order to remove most of its fat content, and then grinding the resulting mass into a powder. It has a bitter taste, but combined with something even slightly sweet, and the magic occurs! Use to make raw chocolates, deserts, cakes, smoothies, sauces etc
Cacao is rich in:
• Endorphin promoting nutrients such as anandamide and tryptophan which help us to feel good and stay connected.
• Sulfur ("the beauty mineral")
• Antioxidants (On ORAC the scale of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, raw cocoa has the highest concentration of antioxidants on the planet!)
• Chromium, which helps to regulate blood sugar, and keeps hunger under control.
