Happy National Cacao Day! As Cacao is one of the key ingredients in our delicious Cacao & Cashew Quinoa bar. We wanted to share some of our reasons why we are CUCKOO FOR CACAO!
It retains all the goodness!
Cacao is the raw form of cocoa that comes from the Theobroma cacao tree. Our Cacao is completely organic and made by cold-pressing unroasted Peruvian Criollio Cacao beans. As it is never heated above 45 degrees, it keeps all the goodness. So, unlike cocoa, it retains all its vitamins, minerals and antioxidants!
It keeps you perky!
Cacao contains a molecule called anandamide or the “bliss molecule”. This is known to be a mood improver and to create a feeling of euphoria. No wonder we can’t get enough of it!
A great source of energy!
Cacao is one of the best food sources of magnesium. Magnesium is great for producing energy, keeping a healthy brain and combatting fatigue.
It is full of antioxidants!
Cacao is rich in flavonoids, which have been linked to healthy hearts, lowering blood pressure and providing anti-aging benefits too!
Our Cacao is totally natural with no nasties!
Our Cacao is naturally low in salt and sugar and has no added preservatives or sweeteners. It is also suitable for gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan diets. It’s absolutely perfect for giving you that guilt-free chocolate-y hit.
