Simply put, it’s all about keeping the raw goodness of the cacao bean in the chocolate. The cacao in chocolate has a lot of goodness, but your average chocolate uses roasted cacao and is full of sugar.
We use organic, raw cacao, which is higher in antioxidants and therefore even better for you than regular dark chocolate.
Raw chocolate is made with unroasted cacao beans. This means that the good nutrients and enzymes in the cacao are not harmed by excessive heat and are therefore retained in the chocolate.
Raw = Unroasted = Nutrients not destroyed = Better for you
Cacao has the one if the highest levels of antioxidants of the ‘superfoods’ (from the high content of polyphenols) and is rich in magnesium. Using unheated organic cacao means that this chocolate retains much more of these healthy attributes than normal organic chocolate.
Our cacao is ethically sourced from Ecuador.
