The seed of the Theobroma Cacao fruit is an amazing superfood used for thousands of years. The astounding properties of this South American treasure are what have made chocolate the cultural icon it is today – cacao is the raw unadulterated ingredient that gives chocolate its status as the food of love and romance due to its mood enhancing, energizing, pleasant, satiating nature. This nutrient dense, stimulating, mineral rich food was highly esteemed by the Aztec and Mayan natives of Central America who considered cacao to be “the food of the gods”. These ancient cultures so highly esteemed this food that they used the beans as money.
Renowned for its energy and mood boosting properties, raw chocolate is a unique and incredible mood enhancing, energizing superfood. It contains an abundance of phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA, also knows as “the love hormone”, is produced in the body when one falls in love and also provides increased alertness and focus.
Cacao contains the highest level of magnesium of any known food as well as high levels of selenium, iron, copper, potassium, calcium, zinc, and manganese. It also contains high levels of the amino acid, tryptophan – a crucial component for the synthesis of protein and a precursor to serotonin. This amazing superfood provides the body with energy and stimulates the immune system with serotonin, dopamine, and theobromine. It is also loaded with antioxidants and powerful bioflavonoids that eliminate free radicals and detoxify the body.
These raw dried beans are chocolate in it’s most pure, raw form. Our beans are hand selected from mature heirloom Criollo trees that are harvested on small family farms in the lush Amazon basin of Peru. These rare and sought after mature heritage trees yield premium Criollo Cacao with amazing flavor and nutrient content. The cultivation of our Premium Cacao promotes reforestation and preservation of the precious Amazon Rainforest by supplying locals with income dependent on the maintenance and protection of old growth trees. The cultivation of our cacao depends on old growth trees whose roots travel deep into the Amazon soil to pull out nutrients stored for centuries in the lively soil of the rainforest, making our product more mineral rich and sustainable than mass produced hybrid strains designed to maximize yield in less time. The fruit of these mature heirloom trees is picked and the seeds are air-dried with the pulp in small batches in our sterile facility where they are carefully monitored and managed during the fermentation process that gives our unique Premium Cacao an incredible flavor profile in their raw and unadulterated state.
