What is healthy raw dark chocolate?
Raw cacao is a superfood loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that have many health benefits. Raw dark chocolate, by definition, contains no milk product and is as rich as its cacao content. Indeed, all the healthful goodness in any dark chocolate product is concentrated in the cacao. 10% of its actual weight is composed of antioxidants. The closer you are to the beans the better it is for you.
Our organic fair trade raw cacao is single origin and raw and we are careful to use only small amounts of pure organic raw cacao butter (not any other type of vegetable oil) in order to maintain the solid cacao content. After the addition of our raw honey or pure maple syrup and the pure vanilla bean, our chocolate is a very high 88% dark.
Dark raw chocolate contains many beneficial compound and antioxidants such as, polyphenols, especially flavanols and flavonoids. Raw cacao is also a great source of vitamins A, C, D, E, B-complex vitamins B1, B2, B3, and pantothenic acid. Raw cacao beans are also loaded with many essential minerals the body needs. These include magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese, potassium and phosphorus.
Most cacaos are fermented at very high temperatures and then roasted. Both processes kill off the living enzymes in this superfood.
Our cacao remains raw by never reaching a fermentation temperature greater than 115 degrees Fahrenheit and by not being roasted. This ensures a far more nutrient rich cacao.
