  • Our LifeFoods Raw Cacao Beans are jam packed with antioxidants, magnesium, iron, calcium, and a tonne of natural bliss nutrients that will keep you (and your taste buds) healthy & happy. Cacao is one of the highest antioxidant foods in the world, with over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries. It's also the highest plant-based source of iron, is full of magnesium which is the most deficient mineral in the western world, and has more calcium than cow's milk.

    LifeFood's certified organic Raw Cacao Beans are a heirloom variety of Arriba cacao beans. The Cacao is grown in high-elevation volcanic soil in Ecuador, South America. The Arriba Cacao trees are a minimum of 30 years old, and some have even been growing for more than 80 years! The Arriba cacao pods are personally selected by hand and only harvested when they are fully mature and ripe.
  • Use them in baking, add to a trail mix with raw organic nuts, seeds, dried fruit, goji berries and white mulberries. You can also whizz them up in a food processor to make your own cacao powder.

  • "I like using these to make an easy trail mix with a healthy chocolate hit. I use cacao beans, goji berries, raw brazil nuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, figs and dates. Ok so that sounds like a lot of ingredients but honestly it's so easy and so delicious!"

    "Now I can eat chocolate every day! I mix these with yoghurt or sprinkle on my cereal. They're more bitter than regular chocolate, but that's because there's no sugar or dairy in them - just pure cacao. I just mix them with something slightly sweeter or with dried fruit and they're delicious! I've come to love the darker richer flavour now too."
