Cacao is an ancestral medicine that has been found to be used in South America as far back as 5450 years ago in the highlands of Ecuador by the ancient culture Mayo Chinchipe.

Archeological contemporary findings show that Cacao was used for ritual and ceremonial purposes but also as an every day super food because of the various nutritional compounds such as Theobromine, an important compound responsible of converting the food into energy in our body. This is the reason why Cacao has been named as The Food of the Goods by ancient civilizations such as Mayan, Aztec and Inka.

Our Cacao Paste holds the essence of the Cacao tree as it is produced by artisans with sustainable practices. When you consume Cacao Paste you are absorbing the whole benefit of the fruit. Instead, Cocoa is a part of the Cacao Paste that is separated in order to produce chocolate.
