Chocolate is one of the most popular foods and flavors in the world. The beans are picked from the cacao tree and are dried, cleaned and roasted and then ground into a powder.
We all have heard the studies about how great chocolate is for our health, but that doesn’t mean we should be eating chocolate bars all day every day. Most often, the benefits of chocolate are too often outweighed by the negative consequences of the fat and refined sugar that it tends to pair with. Raw cacao powder is packed with antioxidants that destroy free radicals, the chemicals that accelerate aging, inflammation and increase the potential for a range of diseases. At ZEGO, we like to use the raw cacao powder to capture the maximum benefit from the plant. The chocolate we use is also dairy-free, soy-free, organic and fair-trade! (Thank you Pascha!)
