Using Cacao Benefits Your Digestion Process
Jenny’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie mix contains cacao, a superfood! The earliest evidence indicates cacao was used for ingestion by Mesoamericans around 1,400 BCE. Cacao is a superfood containing highly beneficial compounds, vitamins, and minerals.
Cacao vs Cocoa: What is the difference?
Cacao is considered a pure form of chocolate, with minimal processing, that contains many phytochemicals and nutrients.
Cocao, on the other hand, has been processed at high heat, which destroys much of the beneficial chemicals and nutrients.
They both come from the cacao tree and are spelled very similarly. Sigh. Although, they are quite different nutritionally speaking and in how they are processed.
