Cacao is the raw base for chocolate making. However, in its own right it is a truly remarkable food. It is packed with antioxidants and other phytonutrients, to make a powerful and delicious contribution to a healthy diet.
For too long this amazing nutritional phenomenon has been ignored, hidden behind the fat and sugar of its processed relative, chocolate. However, awareness of its remarkable nutritional profile is growing, and increasing numbers of people are putting this fantastic food at the core of a healthy diet. Rainforest Foods uses only Criollo Cacao, often referred to as the 'Queen of Cacao' for its high quality.
Cacao powder is lightly processed, to remove its fat content. This results in slightly less nutrition than beans or nibs, as a trade off for its low-fat status.

A note about themselves:
"Rainforest Foods is a company with one aim: to bring you the finest of nature's foods. We manufacture them in the form of dietary supplements for one fundamental reason: because while relatively few people live near the rainforests, mountains or islands where many superfoods grow, very many people live modern lives where balanced meals at regular intervals are not always possible.
We search the globe for foods with unusually high nutritional value, which we process and bring to you in easily managed forms such as capsules, tablets and powder. Superfood supplements can help us balance and support modern diets."
