Eaten and cultivated by the ancient Mayans, cacao is considered a “superfood” that will leave you feeling happy & revitalised. Cacao powder is made from organic raw cacao beans, which are the seeds of an Amazonian fruiting tree and source of all chocolate and cocoa products. As the temperature is never allowed to exceed 40°C, the powder is considered a ‘raw’ food with all heat-sensitive vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants remaining intact, thereby maximising digestion and absorption.
