Theobroma cacao from Peru
“Nutrition of the gods”
Purasana organic cocoa beans are the seed of the Theobroma cacao, a small evergreen tree that grows in tropical climates. The first cocoa beans on European soil came from Mexico. The recipe for cocoa drink was kept secret for over a hundred years. Cocoa is naturally exceptionally rich in nutrients and phytonutrients. Cocoa was undervalued for many years owing to the fat and sugar contained in processed cocoa (chocolate). Cocoa flavonols help maintain endothelium-dependent vasodilation, contributing to a healthy circulation. This effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200 mg of cocoa flavonols.
Cocoa powder is made from cocoa beans using a traditional process. This powder is pure and free of sugars and flavour enhancers.
