Power Super Foods Cacao Beans Raw Organic 250g

Cacao beans are the seeds of an Amazonian fruiting tree (theobroma cacao – meaning "The Food of the Gods") and source of all chocolate and cocoa products. The Mexican Mayan kings drank up to 30 pure chocolate drinks a day to maintain their vigour and valued the bean so highly that it was used as money. Our raw Beans are from the best tasting premium criollo variety.

Suggested Uses: Peel (optional) then eat as is, lightly roast (optional) and grind with coffee, or crush and add to smoothies, ice cream, muesli, cookie batter or trail mix, or substitute in dessert recipes for chocolate chips.

Raw Cacao products are a source of beta-carotene, amino acids (protein), Omega-3 EFA's, calcium, zinc, iron, copper, sulphur, potassium, and one of the best food sources of muscle relaxing, stress relieving magnesium – now you know why women crave chocolate every month! 

Ingredients: Certified Organic Fair Trade 100% Raw Cacao Beans (Theobroma cacao, criollo)Power Super Foods sustainably cultivated cacao products are grown without chemical fertilisers and are non-genetically modified. Our Peruvian supplier is Fair Trade certified – supporting rather than exploiting economically disadvantaged farmers preventing poverty cycles that can lead to environmental devastation.

 
1. Why do some beans have a dusting of white on the outside?
Many high antioxidant foods slowly change colour on the outside after picking (eg. Pomegranate and Acai darken)

2. How much caffeine does cacao have?
All natural products vary, but it is generally considered to have about 1% caffeine (as compared to tea at 4% and coffee which can be more than 10% !!)

3. So why do I feel so good eating cacao?
Cacao has other naturally occurring phytochemicals like theobromine (considered an aphrodisiac), phenylethylamine (PEA – released when we fall in love), and anandamide (the ‘bliss' chemical).
