We are delighted to bring you this alive cacao powder. Cacao beans are the source for all Chocolate and Cocoa products.
Cacao is incredibly rich in Magnesium and is most likely the number one source for this essential mineral. Other essential minerals present in Cacao are Calcium, Zinc, Iron, Copper, Sulfur, Magnesium and Potassium. The bean also contains more antioxidant flavanoids than any other food tested – including blueberries, red wine and green tea.
Cacao contains many chemicals that enhance physical and mental well-being, including alkaloids, proteins, magnesium, beta-carotene, leucine, linoleic acid, lipase, lysine, and some neurotransmitters such as dopamine and anandamide.
Add it to smoothies. Imagine sprinkling it on a fruit salad of sliced peaches, bananas, mangoes and strawberries!
