Untreated organic cacao butter from Peru in raw food quality.
There are three internationally widespread Theobroma cacao varieties: Criollo, Forastero and Trinitario (a cross of the first two). Criollo is the most expensive of these and actually very rare, makeing up only 1% of the international cacao bean market.
Thanks to its mineral-content, the raw cacao bean, and the raw cacao butter it produces, belong to nature's finest superfoods. Cacao is the best calcium source on the planet, containing 314% of the reference nutrient intake (RNI) per portion. Cacao also has the highest concentration of antioxidants compared to any other food and is exceptionally rich in chromium, anandamide (happy molecule), theobromin, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C, omega 6 fatty acids, phenylethylamine, tryptophan, serotonin, and many more.
Contrary to popular belief, cacao contains little or no caffeine. Clinical tests have shown that cacao has less of an impact on blood sugar levels than other caffeine-containing foods and drinks. Cacao does, however, increase energy levels and is a known aphrodisiac.
Thanks to the purity of this product, it does not cause nervous reactions. The beans do not contain any mycotoxin, mould, yeast, or fungi that can evoke a jittery adrenalin reaction, similar to that caused by caffeine in many cacao products. Conversely, our cacao beans promote a feeling of wellbeing by stimulating the pineal gland.
