Okay, What is Cacao?

Cacao is one of the most well-loved superfoods, but its many forms can also get a little confusing.


Cacao seeds are the tropical superfood known for all things chocolate. The cacao tree is usually found growing in Africa or South America. 


Cacao is packed with antioxidants and essential minerals (hello: iron, magnesium, and calcium). It also naturally promotes production of anandamide (aka "the bliss molecule") in the brain — yep, it's basically chocolate-y CBD. 


Cacao is the less processed form of cocoa, so it's your best option for reaping all the wellness benefits of this tasty superfood. Looking for ways to get more bliss-boosting cacao in your life? Try a latte made with Cacao Golde, or some of our other favorite recipes:
