"I must admit...Until tasting this dark chocolate, I wasn't really a fan. But thanks to Good Stuff Cacao, it has become an everyday staple and one of my essential food groups!" - Bill Taylor
This is the story of the cacao bean...and the best dark chocolate you will ever taste! Barbara Mietling in Metamora, Michigan, on a quest for providing healthy foods for her family, has unlocked the secrets of the cacao bean. This unique bean comes from a cacao fruit tree, also known as Theobroma Cacao, native to Ecuador. These lovely fruit trees produce pods which are then cracked open to release the cacao beans. Removing the contents of the pod, the beans are left in the sun to dry and ferment for several days. Once dry, the cacao beans are chopped up into tiny, edible pieces called nibs. The nibs are then cold-pressed to a paste and repeatedly pressed until it becomes a powder. As the cacao nibs are being compressed, it also releases a rich butter that resembles white chocolate in taste and appearance.
Cacao (pronounced ka-cow) is 100% unprocessed dark chocolate and it is one of nature’s most fantastic superfoods. Since it is never heated above 118 degrees, the minerals, nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins that are naturally found in raw cacao beans are never destroyed. The cacao bean also has more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries, acai, pomegranates and gogi beans-combined. Raw Cacao will also aid every part and system of your body – your brain, heart and skin, and the skeletal, digestive, muscular, immune and central nervous system to mention a few. Raw cacao even helps with leveling blood sugars, preventing cavities, weight loss, cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammation, moods, and emotions!
