Cacao vs Cocoa
Why did we choose organic, raw cacao?
Typically, hot Chocolate is often made from cocoa. Cocoa goes through heavier processing - heating at higher temperatures. This heat can affect the beans on a molecular level, changing their structure which then degrades their nutrient content. This means that organic, raw cacao - found in our withinUs Cacao Misto™ - is less processed, more nutrient-dense, and higher in antioxidants in comparison to cocoa.
TruFact: Raw Organic Cacao has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries.
Benefits of raw cacao include:
Cacao is one of the best food sources of magnesium, which helps turn glucose into energy making it essential for a healthy brain, nervous system, and strong muscles and bones.
Cacao helps build blood and transport oxygen throughout the body.
Heart Health: Flavonoids.
Cacao has antioxidant properties and has been linked with heart health benefits such as increasing the formation of good cholesterol (HDL) which helps to lower blood pressure.
Cacao is also a great source of serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine, and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters are associated with cozy feelings of wellbeing, happiness, and may also help alleviate depression.
Get ready to scoop, stir and sip your deliciously indulgent, collagen-powered, hot cacao misto.
