Natava SuperFoods Certified Raw Organic Cacao Powder is the real stuff when it comes to chocolate!!! It is derived from pure Heirloom Ecuador Arriba Nacional Cacao Beans.
Our cacao is grown in high-elevation volcanic soil and the beans are carried down from the mountainous regions via donkey back. The Arriba Cacao trees are a minimum of 30 years old and some have even been growing for more than 80 years!
The Arriba Cacao trees that our beans are sourced from are only ever nourished with rain water or deep mountain springs, they are never irrigated from potentially contaminated rivers or streams. The cacao beans are always sun-dried and never gas dried, therefore the cacao remains 100% raw from start to finish.
Health Benefits of Cacao Powder:
Because we have such a pure cacao bean it is considered by many to be of the highest quality, this maintains its abundance of antioxidants so you get the maximum health benefits.
They are a good source of magnesium that is also associated with improving people's moods as it helps the body to release happy hormones.
(For many people with a typical western diet they will often find they are deficient in magnesium, so taking Cacao can help to relieve this problem.)
How to Use Cacao Powder:
Cacao Powder are suitable for many different desserts, cakes, cookies and even pancakes. They are also great added smoothie or milkshakes. If you are feeling decadent you can even add them to your morning cereal. All it takes is a little inspiration and you will have that great chocolate hit with a whole heap of benefits.
