CACAO vs. COCOA? Which is Healthier?

Which is Healthier? Cacao or Cocoa?

Did you know there's a difference between CACAO and COCOA? Although spelled similarly, they are DRASTICALLY different in health terms.

Raw cacao powder is made without any heating techniques -- it's made by pressing unroasted cocoa beans. Since the beans are cold processed, all vitamins, nutriens, and live enzymes are preserved. Cocoa looks and sounds similar, but it's very different: Cocoa powder is raw cacao that has been roasted at high temperatures, thereby removing most of the health benefits. When you have a choice, stick with CACAO!

Health Benefits of Cacao:

  • 40 Times the Antioxidants of Blueberries.
  • Highest Plant-Based Source of Iron
  • Full of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain
  • More Calcium Than Cow's Milk
  • A Natural Mood Elevator and Anti-Depressant
  • Excellent source of iron and magnesium, aiding in energy

FACT OF THE DAY: Our WORKOUT HARD: Brownie Chocolate Chip bar is made with RAW CACAO as well as CACAO NIBS, great for post-workout!
