The Benefits of Raw Cold-Pressed Cacao
Cacao has numerous documented health benefits. In 1793, Linnaeus, a Swedish scientist, named the plant Theobroma Cacao (literally, food of the gods). For a product to be called “Raw Cacao,” it has to be minimally processed at lower temperatures. This is achieved through cold pressing cacao beans. Most store-bought chocolate is heavily processed, reducing the potential health benefits.
Antioxidants present in raw cacao are significantly higher than in processed chocolate. Cacao lends a rich dark chocolate flavor, with plenty of flavonoids and antioxidant power.
