    Description

    Aduna Super-Cacao is scientifically-proven to support heart health. Made from specially selected high-flavanol beans, it contains twice the flavanols of regular cacao powder. Flavanols are a plant-based antioxidant that help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, contributing to normal blood flow and supporting:

  • Cardiovascular Health

  • Elasticity of Arteries

  • Blood Circulation
  • It is also high in protein and fibre as well as being a rich source of magnesium and potassium.

    Taste
    Aduna Super-Cacao has a delicious rich, chocolate taste.

    Directions
    To support normal blood flow, take 20g (200mg flavanols) per day with hot or cold milk and sweeten to taste (mix into a paste with a little liquid before topping up). Mix into smoothies, porridge, yoghurts, ice creams or use as a nutritious alternative to cocoa powder. Simply substitute cocoa for cacao (1:1 ratio) to create delicious homemade chocolates, healthy hot chocolate or your favourite baked treats.

    Producer

    Produced by: Aduna

    Aduna is an Africa inspired brand and social business. Their mission is to create demand for under-utilised but extraordinary natural products from small-scale producers in rural Africa. Some of these all natural 'super-ingredients' already grow wild on their land (like baobab) and others can easily be cultivated by small producers (like cacao and moringa). Aduna invest heavily in raising awareness of these super-ingredients which are often unheard of in the western world, and educating consumers of their health benefits. Aduna are currently working with 700 women from 13 communities. They source baobab fruits from 528 women and further 176 are then employed in their processing centre to transform the fruits into powder before shipping. Their long-term sustainability enterprise has seen them win a number of sustainability awards.

    To support normal blood flow, take 20g (200mg flavanols) per day with hot or cold milk and sweeten to taste (mix into a paste with a little liquid before topping up). Mix into smoothies, porridge, yoghurts, ice creams.
