Raw Brazil Nut Chocolate Dream with Yacon

Yacon lends an unmistakeable sweetness, adding depth and character to the strong flavors of brazil nuts and raw cacao. Pure raw organic ingredients, processed at low temperature with no added refined sugar, make our Raw Brazil Nut Chocolate Dream with Yacon a dreamy taste experience! We grind brazil nuts to a smooth creamy texture. The intense dark flavor of raw cacao comes from ultra-fine-ground beans and nibs. Sweetened with Yacon, our Raw Brazil Nut Chocolate Dream with Yacon is a deeply satisfying chocolate sensation. Use it in milkshakes, cakes, or sauces, as a gourmet nut butter for sandwiches, or as a delicious snack in its own right!

Ingredients: Organic raw cacao, organic Brazil nuts, and organic Yacon syrup.

To preserve the flavors and health compounds in raw cacao, we stone-grind small batches of beans and nibs for 30 hours to create a smooth, fine-particle spread. Then we mix the freshly ground chocolate with our own Rejuvenative brazil nut butter, and sweeten it with Yacon syrup.

Yacon is a sweet-tasting root vegetable grown in South America. The sweet flavor results from a sugar called inulin. Inulin tastes sweet but, unlike ordinary sugar, inulin is not readily digestible by humans. Thus, Yacon syrup is a good sweetener for people who wish to avoid the health effects of refined sugar.

Raw Brazil Nut Chocolate Dream with Yacon is a 100% vegan organic raw food: sugar-free, dairy-free, GMO-free, and Gluten-free.

Raw Brazil Nut Chocolate Dream with Yacon should be refrigerated to preserve freshness. All jars are individually date-marked; for best flavor, consume within 8 months.

Yacon contains a sugar called inulin. Inulin is not easily digested by your body, so in effect it has almost no calories and does not cause a "sugar rush". However, you can still taste the sweetness. Yacon is not "sugar free", instead it is considered a natural reduced sugar or low sugar sweetener.

Because it is more or less ignored by the body, inulin from Yacon syrup is safe for consumption by some diabetic patients with poor sugar tolerance. If you are diabetic, confirm with your doctor that chocolate with Yacon syrup is a good choice for you.

Besides being a "safe sugar", the inulin in Yacon is believed to offer multiple health benefits. Inulin may help with digestion while promoting beneficial bacteria in your digestive system and inhibiting harmful organisms. In one study of obese pre-menopausal women, a daily intake of Yacon syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index.

The Brazil nut is celebrated for its rich flavor and creamy texture when ground. These delicious qualities result from the Brazil nut's high content of healthy unsaturated fat; among the highest healthy fat contents of any nut. Even small amounts of unsaturated fat in the diet can reduce bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol, leading to a healthier circulatory system. Brazil nuts are rich in vitamins including vitamin E and B-complex vitamins. Finally, Brazil nuts provide important minerals including potassium, copper, magnesium, manganese and selenium. Brazil nuts provide the highest concentration of selenium of any food. Selenium protects cells against free radicals, and is crucial to thyroid health. Selenium consumption has been strongly linked with cancer cell reduction.

Raw cacao has all the same health benefits as cocoa (roasted cacao), but with even higher concentrations of nutrients and antioxidants. Magnesium helps to balance brain chemistry, build strong bones and joints, reduce risks of diabetes and hypertension, and support heart health. Raw cacao also contains sulfur compounds that strengthen hair and nails, improve skin condition, and help to detoxify the liver. The antioxidants in raw cacao help to improve circulation and regulate heartbeat and blood pressure, leading to reduced risk of stroke or heart attack.

Raw chocolate is also an excellent "mood food". Besides the uplifting flavor, raw chocolate contains endorphins that create a natural "high". Raw chocolate also contains neurotransmitters such as serotonin and anandamide, which promote relaxation and feelings of well-being.
