The scientific name Theobroma means “food of the gods”. It should come as no surprise, knowing that ancient Mayans and Aztecs once used cacao as currency! Sunfood Raw Chocolate Powder is the world’s premier raw, organic, antioxidant-rich cocoa powder. It is created by cold-pressing Sunfood Raw Cacao Nibs into a cake, separating the oil from the protein and fiber. Cacao offers cardiovascular benefits and cancer protection, and also helps lower cholesterol. Raw cacao has a higher antioxidant rating than blueberries, acai, and even goji berries. It really is a superfood! It is also the #1 source of magnesium of any food. Other noteworthy mentions include iron, zinc, manganese, copper, tryptophan, and serotonin. It also contains high levels of Phenylethylamine (PEA) – this is often referred to as the love chemical, because it is produced in our bodies when we fall in love!
