If you are a lover of chocolate, you probably feel guilty when you have a bit too much of your favourite hot chocolate or chocolate cake. You are probably wanting to avoid all the sugar and unhealthy additives. But did you know that chemical processing is often part of the normal manufacturing process. Cacao (pronounced ka-kow) has been revered for centuries by the Mayans for good reason. It is high in antioxidants and rich in minerals (14 times more antioxidant flavonoids than red wine, 21 times more than green tea, and 7 times more than even dark chocolate). Raw Cacao products are a source of beta-carotene, amino acids, Omega-3 EFA's, calcium, zinc, iron, copper, sulphur, potassium and magnesium With all those mineral no wonder we love chocolate. In traditional methods most of the nutrients and antioxidants are destroyed because the cocoa powder is processed via the "Dutch method". Heat extraction is applied (up to 150°C!) and sometimes solvents are used, thus destroying heat-sensitive vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and potentially contaminating the end product.
