raw *cacao powder
Cacao beans have a rich history in Central and South America beginning around 1500 BC - as part of the traditional medicine of the Mayan, Olmec and Aztec civilizations. Traditionally, Cacao fruit was eaten or fermented into alcohol and vinegar before the method of grinding and roasting the seeds was introduced. The traditional medicinal uses for Cacao were as a treatment for fatigue, support in weight gain when using the butter, softening skin, as an antiseptic for killing microbes around fresh wounds and as a snake bite remedy. Theobroma cacao
has been found to contain 26 anti-inflammatories, an astringent and 5 vacoconstrictors as well as antiseptic properties. The many beneficial properties of cacao are destroyed when processed thus using raw cacao is essential.
Cacao powder can be drank as a beverage and added in culinary preparations from date and seed truffles, chocolates, breads, muffins and other baking to natural chocolate smoothies blends without the added sugar. Our premium dates are a perfect companion
to cacao for creating guilt fee desserts and smoothies. Note:
