OVERVIEW:

Incas considered cacao the "drink of gods" and its deep chocolate flavor can be described as slightly bitter and nutty. Cacao is used abundantly in food and other consumables. The deep dark chocolate flavor is perfect when added to baked goods, smoothies or trail mixes. Nibs have a crunchy texture and intense flavor.

 

Organic cacao is packed with powerful nutrients, antioxidants, and is an excellent source of fiber and iron. It is also one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium and has more calcium per serving than cow’s milk. Cacao is a great source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals (serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine) associated with feelings of wellbeing.
