There’s a reason why chocolate is loved all over the world. It was the Mayans who first started to cultivate cacao plants creating an elixir they called “xocolatl” (meaning “bitter water”). It was a mixture of crushed cocoa beans, chilli peppers and water. The Mayans called it the “drink of Gods” and often used during various ceremonies. Cacao was so precious it was once used as a currency, also recognised for its medicinal, religious and cultural benefits.
Today, chocolate is typically processed and cocoa beans roasted, which destroys a large amount of the antioxidants (not to mention the sugar and oils that are typically added to make chocolate bars). Raw Cacao, like the one we use in our Pure Blend protein blends, on the other hand has numerous health benefits, so you can add it to your diet without any guilt!
Raw cacao powder is one of the most incredible and delicious superfoods.
