Raw cacao has a rich history amongst ancient Central American cultures. Associated with nobility and abundance, cacao was known as ‘the food of the gods’ or ‘black gold’ and traded as currency. All chocolate comes from cacao beans, which is the nut of the cacao fruit. Cacao Powder is the cake left from the defatted cacao nibs, which is then powdered. Raw chocolate is one of the highest antioxidant foods known and is a rich source of magnesium and mood enhancing brain-chemicals including PEA, anandamide, serotonin and dopamine.
