All chocolate comes from cacao, or cocoa, as it is more commonly known. Cacao is the seed (nut) of a fruit of an Amazonian tree that was brought to Central America during or before the time of the Olmecs. Cacao Beans were so revered by the Mayans and Aztecs that they used them as money! When in its pure, raw form, cacao is one of nature’smost fantastic superfoods. The secrets to chocolate’s incredible health benefits are unlocked when it is eaten in its raw, unheated state.
The Sunfood Difference
The Sunfood Story
Their raw, organic cacao products come from hand-selected 100% Cacao beans. Most other cacao products are exposed to temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit during processing. Their cacao processing temperatures are never allowed to exceed 120 degrees. A high-accuracy thermometer is used throughout processing to ensure this quality and standard. No chemicals or solvents, such as hexane, are used at any point of their processes.
Years ago, a group of health minded individuals noticed an alarming trend in their towns and communities. They saw friends and family eating and drinking dead, processed foods full of chemicals. They knew that this was the path to obesity and disease, ultimately leading to western medicine's suppression of symptoms with drugs and scalpels. This is not true healing.
Sunfood was born from their desire to create an alternative path to health. They believe that the secrets to health, energy and long life are found in nature through diet and nutrition. Building upon the wisdom of traditional and modern natural healing methods from all over the world, they are here to share powerful information and superfoods that help people heal and rejuvenate themselves naturally.
