Cacao Vs Cocoaimage – EatLocalGrown



A growing number of studies show that chocolate, especially antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, has health benefits that put it squarely on the latest list of superfoods. This sounds fantastic because chocolate is so delicious. But, are you actually eating real chocolate? The disappointing answer is most likely not.

You ought to know that the numerous scientific studies that boast of chocolate’s amazing health benefits are not referring to your average store-bought chocolate bar, they are referring to the cacao content – which should ideally be as high as possible.



What Is The Difference Between Cocoa And Cacao?

Cocoa is processed cacao that has been roasted at high temperatures, whereas cacao is simply pure, raw cacao beans. Cacao requires minimal processing and preserves all the antioxidants and other beneficial phytonutrients, while roasting at high temperatures destroys them in cocoa.

Even the top quality cocoa brands, such as Rapunzel 100% Pure Organic Cocoa Powder – while being an excellent product, are roasted.

Commercial chocolate is often worse: During the chocolate manufacturing process, cocoa butter is often mixed with other vegetable oils to make it “go further”. This is a cheaper way of producing chocolate but the problem is the final product is something less than “real chocolate”. Many brands also contain high sugar levels or high fructose corn syrup and use soy lecithin as an emulsifier.

The easiest way to tell whether you are getting cacao or cocoa? Look for the word RAW on the packaging! And then check the rest of the ingredients.



How To Make Your Own Raw Chocolate!

The good news is you can easily make your own “super chocolate” with only 3 super healthy ingredients… Cacao, coconut oil and honey!

You can also add pure (food grade) peppermint essential oil, coconut flakes, hazelnuts or whatever other healthy ingredients you are in the mood for.

You might also save a lot of money this way. A pound weight of raw cacao is around $10. If you make your own, you’ll be amazed at how much more you can make for the same money as the “fancy” raw chocolate brands that you might see for example in Whole Foods Market. Not that we have anything against these products… we just think they are way overpriced.

Check out this awesome Healthworks Raw Certified Organic Cacao Powder (tons of 5 star reviews!) on Amazon.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
