Cacao, or Cocoa, is an evergreen tree which grows naturally in tropical climates around the world. Its fruit, the Cacao bean, is well-known as the basic ingredient in chocolate, and has for centuries been predominant in diets in its native areas. Nowadays, Cacao has attracted attention due to its nutritional richness, and health benefits associated with its antioxidant content. Our hand-picked, premium beans are packed with essential minerals, including Magnesium, Sulphur, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, Copper, Potassium and Manganese, which are all widely respected for their array of health benefits, from immune system support, to the healthy maintenance of our teeth and hair. This product is raw, as processing temperatures do not exceed 45⁰C. The Raw Cacao Beans are simply cleaned and packed in their natural state.
Controversially, in addition to our Raw Cacao Beans’ antioxidant content, there is also evidence to suggest that a good number of health benefits that are known to be contributed to the beans indicate the possibility that they could in fact be a weight-loss aid. Add up to 2 tablespoons per day into meals or healthy diets, or alternatively, Cacao beans are delicious when eaten as a snack.
100% Organic Raw Cacao beans. No colours, binders, fillers or preservatives added. Certified organic by the Soil Association and registered by the Vegan society.

Wasn't sure what product would taste like when I bought it. Very bitter but did stop chocolate cravings, going to add to recipes instead of by its self. Very quick postage.

I was expecting a raw, not edible coffee like thing. But this is a gourmet candy, tastes like fermented. Whole family liked it.
