Product Info

All chocolate is made from the raw cacao bean! Cacao is the seed of a fruit of an Amazonian tree that was brought to Central America during or before the time of the Olmecs. Cacao beans were so revered by the Mayans and Aztecs that they used them as money!

In 1753 Carl von Linnaeus, the 18th-century Swedish scientist, thought that cacao was so important that he named the genus and species of this tree himself. He named this tree: Theobroma cacao, which literally means "cacao, the food of the gods."

Cacao beans contain no sugar and between 12% and 50% fat depending on variety and growth conditions. Real Raw Food's cacao is around 40% fat content (low compared to other nuts). There is no evidence to implicate cacao bean consumption with obesity. Worried about allergies? Allergies to chocolate are quite rare. It is typically the case that the person is in fact allergic to milk, dairy products and chemicals mixed into the production of heat-treated processed chocolate bars.
