There’s a reason so many people reach for chocolate when they need cheering up, raw cacao can actually boost the happy hormones in the brain, and contains a molecule called anandamide, which could contributes to this.
Grown and produced in Peru, the raw cacao beans are shelled and ground to make a raw cocoa liquor. The liquor hardens to an unsweetened ‘chocolate’ when it cools below 95°f / 35°c.
High pressure and very low heat (below 42°c to ensure the product remains raw) is applied to the cocoa liquid to separate the butter and the ‘cake’ (the powder). The cake is then finely ground to make the highest quality, tastiest and most beneficial form of raw cacao powder.
