What is Cacao?
Many people consider eating chocolate a “guilty pleasure.” But the reputation of chocolate as a junk food should more accurately be attributed to the harmful effects of commercial processing and refining techniques, and the other ingredients commonly added, most notably white sugar. All chocolate is made from the cacao (cocoa) bean, and cacao beans in their natural, unprocessed, unadulterated state are rich in nutrients and beneficial to health.

What is Coconut Sugar?
Like a "whole food," coconut sugar is a "whole sweetener." Coconut sugar is merely the dehydrated, crystalized sap of the coconut palm flower, unrefined and naturally high in ancillary nutrients. Since coconut sugar is low glycemic, the body absorbs its sugars slowly and has time to burn them off, preventing the "blood sugar spikes" we associate with sweet foods.
