Cacao was once so revered by the Mayans and the Aztec that it was used as currency. Flavored with chilies, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices, the beans were traditionally ground into a paste to make delicious chocolate dishes and ceremonial drinks. A true superfood, Cacao is a source of Potassium and a very high source of Fiber. Cacao also contains essential minerals and a host of antioxidants, giving it an ORAC value of 8,400 per serving.
