Cacao Fruit (also known as Cocoa) - This is the 'Food of the Gods', it is also where Chocolate comes from!
The fruit and seeds of the cacao tree are harvested, fermented and then ground into cocoa beans. The taste of the cacao bean is directly affected by the quality of the fruit and seeds. It can be sweet-ish, floral and tropical, or more flavourless and sour like water itself!
Fresh Raw cacao is the healthiest way to enjoy the benefits of this superfood - its rich in vitamins, minerals, a great source of magnesium, and naturally occurring substances such as anandamide that help you feel good.
The fruit pulp that surrounds the cacao beans in these pods is a delicious, sweet and floral smelling substance that can be used in many different ways. It can be used in chocolate ice cream, smoothies and a variety of other treats such as hot chocolate and brownies.
The organic process includes a rigorous harvesting of the right cacao pods at their optimal ripening points, through several quality checkpoints and working under the best fruit processing practices. This ensures that the fresh fruit pulp has a high level of antioxidants, energizing B vitamins and magnesium.
In a world where more and more people are turning to natural alternatives for their daily nutrient needs, we're pioneering a new way to enjoy chocolate. Pure Plant's new Whole Cacao Fruit Bar combines the entire cacao fruit with the 'Baba de Cacao', the sweet, floral and lychee-scented fruit pulp that suspends the beans in each pod.
