Did you know that raw cacao on its own is considered as superfood? It provides your body with essential vitamins and minerals like magnesium and iron and can also lower blood pressure and improve circulation. A higher content of cocoa is also linked to the production of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for our feelings of happiness. This is why people often feel much more content after eating raw chocolate. (Reference Article)
Remember, the higher the percentage of cacao, the less sugar the bar has. Pacari has 60% cacao content all the way up to 100%, so there is plenty of room to indulge without regrets!
