Cacao (in its raw form) is one of the most incredible superfoods that our planet
has to offer.

It is the highest source of antioxidants of all foods and provides a tremendous
amount of magnesium (the most deficient mineral amongst North Americans).

Cacao is more commonly known as the main ingredient in chocolate and that's
why "health experts" advise eating chocolate that is at least 70% dark chocolate -
basically meaning that there is more cacao (good stuff) and less sugar and milk
products (bad stuff).

But all these experts forget to mention that eating raw cacao is really the best
way to benefits from all its health-giving glories.

You can get raw cacao in two main forms: raw cacao nibs and raw cacao

So what is the difference?

The difference between the two basically boils down to these 2 points:

1. Cacao nibs still contain most of the cacao bean's essential oils (healthy fats
that also make up cacao butter).

2. Cacao nibs are grittier and don't dissolve as well as does cacao powder - an
important consideration if you're making smoothies and other fun raw food

My advice...

1. Get both and use them together in any of your favourite raw cacao-based


2. Get raw cacao nibs ONLY and run them through a coffee grinder before
throwing them into your recipes - more cost effective than buying both.

You can buy raw cacao in either format in pretty much all health food stores. If
not, you can also get them directly from Sunfood.com.
