Chocolate is one of America's favorite past-times, yet amazingly few have ever tried the cacao beans, or raw chocolate. All chocolate comes from cacao beans which are the seeds of the cacao fruit. This raw chocolate tastes just like dark chocolate because it is!
Raw chocolate means that the cacao has not been heated or processed to retain all of its nutrients. Organic chocolate means that no chemicals have been used in the growth or production of the chocolate. Raw chocolate, or the cacao beans, contain such a huge amount of minerals, antioxidants and other wonderful things, it makes it one of the most nutritious foods in the world. Raw organic chocolate has tons of antioxidants, where broccoli and other vegetables have just a fraction of what you need. When you add dairy, sugar, and chemicals to chocolate, you block most of the antioxidant properties and health benefits.
