Chocolate that is Good for You!!??
Yes, that’s right. By using chocolate in its natural, raw state, also known as Cacao (pronounced ‘cac-cow,’ translated, it literally means ‘food of the gods‘) we are able to make the most amazing creations that will actually benefit your health! Once you heat chocolate above 40 degrees, it loses its nutritional qualities. Therefore, the chocolate recipes we make are always kept at temperatures below this level, to maintain all of the goodness. Theses consist of Cacao Nibs, or Raw Chocolate Powder
Eat Chocolate & Lose Weight
Natural chocolate (Cacao) can actually help you lose weight! Not only does it feed your body with highly absorbable nutrients, but it acts as an appetite suppressant too! Therefore your body will actually take in less food than usual, helping you to lose weight. Research has also shown that cacao can actually speed up the metabolism so the bonus is, eat chocolate and lose weight!
Did you know…
Cacao is remarkably high in essential nutrients, especially sulphur and magnesium. Cacao seems to be the number one source of magnesium of any food. This is probably the primary reason women crave chocolate during their period. Magnesium balances the brain’s chemistry, builds strong bones, and is associated with greater happiness. Magnesium is the most deficient major mineral on the Standard UK Diet (SUKD); over 80% of us are chronically deficient in Magnesium! So learning how to make heavenly chocolate recipes using pure Cacao, is essential to maintaining and improving your nutrient levels!
Who has ever heard of 25,200 antioxidants in a single spoonful of chocolate?
Natural chocolate is powerful stuff. Cacao Powder has about 723% more (or about 7 times more) antioxidants gram-per-gram than typical dark chocolate. In order to get the same levels of antioxidants in one jar of Cacao powder, you would have to consume 80 - 6 oz baskets of Organic Blueberries.
