Introducing Green Cacao Sacred Ceremonial Cacao Drinking Chocolate
Green Cacao Sacred Ceremonial Cacao Drinking Chocolate is a unique product packed with care in Australia by the Green Salt movement. Sourced from the lush Amazon region of Peru, our ceremonial-grade 'chocolate' is made from 100% whole-bean Cacao, ensuring a pure and high-vibe experience while being free of any undesirable additives.
Cacao is not just a delicious sweet treat; it is a superfood with numerous health benefits. Known as the "food of the Gods," Cacao enhances mood and increases serotonin and dopamine levels, the "happy hormones." It also has heart-opening properties, allowing us to connect with our inner selves and express our truth. By unlocking our innate wisdom, Cacao empowers us to lead more abundant and fulfilling lives.
What sets our Ceremonial Cacao apart from ordinary cacao? Let's delve into the distinction between cacao and cocoa. While the names may sound similar, their quality differs significantly. Cocoa powder is extensively roasted at high temperatures, altering the molecular structure of the beans and reducing their natural nutritional value.
On the other hand, cacao powder, even if organic and marketed as a superfood, undergoes extensive processing according to commercial standards, which removes the cacao butter and destroys essential enzymes, healthy fats, and subtle energetic properties of the cacao bean. Our Green Cacao maintains the integrity of the beans, ensuring the preservation of their unique flavor and therapeutic qualities cherished by ancient cultures.
Crafted from premium cacao beans sourced from heirloom strains in the Peruvian Amazon region, specifically the native 'Chuncho' strain, our Green Cacao is meticulously prepared with attention to each step. We prioritize quality over mass production, resulting in a ceremonial-grade cacao paste of the highest grade. The beans are fermented, lightly roasted or sundried, and then ground into the solid ceremonial paste, which solidifies at lower temperatures. Unlike other cacao beans, our ceremonial cacao is exclusively produced from native cacao strains.
Here's why you should make Ceremonial Cacao part of your daily routine:
- Highest Plant-Based Source of Iron
- Rich in Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain
- More Calcium Than Cow’s Milk
- Natural Mood Elevator and Antidepressant
- Protects against heart diseases
- Helps prevent premature aging
- Boosts natural energy levels
- Improves metabolism
- Assists in preventing sunburn
- Promotes glowing skin and may protect against skin cancer
- Fights tooth decay
- Enhances brain function
- Acts as a natural beauty food
- Works as a natural aspirin
The meticulous cacao processing involves extracting the beans from the Cacao fruit, fermenting them for 6-7 days, and then sun-drying them for 3-4 days. The beans are husked, resulting in Cacao Nibs, which are then ground to produce the exquisite Cacao Paste. During this process, a portion of the Cacao Paste is pressed to obtain Cacao Butter, while the remaining part becomes Cacao Cake. The Cake is further pulverized to create Cacao Powder or pure Raw Cocoa, packed with all the nutrients and aroma of Theobroma Cacao, the revered "Food of the Gods."
We deeply care about the quality of our product, and we know you do too. That's why our Ceremonial Cacao is 100% organic, sustainably grown, and roasted to perfection. A cooperative of organic farmers cultivates the premium Theobroma Cacao in its native environment, having received training in organic farming techniques. Pesticides and chemical fertilizers are never used. Through
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORDINARY CACAO AND OUR CEREMONIAL CACAO?
First, let’s break down the difference between Cocoa and Cacao, because they often get mixed up. They might be spelled similarly, but they are definitely not the same in quality, so you always want to go with cacao.
“Cocoa powder has been roasted for long periods of time at high temperatures, which changes the molecular structure of the bean, lowering its naturally abundant nutritional value.
Cacao powder (although it may be organic, “raw” and a “superfood”) is also highly processed to commercial standards, removing the bean’s natural fat (cacao butter). This means that many living enzymes, healthy fat and most of the subtle energetic properties of cacao have been destroyed”. (by Medium.com)
Cacao vs Green Cacao
The difference between regular cacao and Ceremonial CACAO is the quality of the beans. The whole process is a ritual, when special attention is placed in each step, always prioritizing the quality over mass production, maintaining its unique flavor and therapeutic properties revered by ancient cultures.
Our Green Cacao is a paste of the highest grade made from Heirloom strains sourced from Premium Cacao Beans in Peru Amazon Region (in the native strain called 'Chuncho'). This is the part of the world where cacao grows natively finding the optimal conditions to produce amazing cacao beans. Our Ceremonial Cacao paste is manufactured from a single ingredient – cacao beans. They are fermented, lightly roasted or sundried, then ground down into the ceremonial paste that becomes solid at cooler temperatures. Unlike other cacao beans, ceremonial cacao is specifically produced from native cacao strains.
