Cacao

  • Description
  • More Details
Ancient cultures knew that certain foods were difficult if not impossible to digest in their completely raw and natural state and so implemented methods like fermentation in order to break these foods down so that they were able to digest them easily and obtain their nutrients.  This is exactly the case with raw cacao beans.

Fermentation
Fermentation is a process that is highly beneficial to any food in increasing the enzyme activity of that food and increasing the nutrient availability. 

Cacao beans, still covered with pulp, are placed in large, shallow wooden boxes or are left in piles and covered with banana leaves to start their fermentation process.

Once extracted from the pod-like fruit, purified water is then used to cleanse the beans. These whole beans are unpeeled and do not contain sugar or any other additives. They are then dried at low temperature and packed.

Cacao beans though called a bean are actually the seed pod of a fruit, eg, a nut, and, if unfermented, can be difficult for the human digestive system to break down due to the beans having a high phytic acid level which inhibits the uptake of alkaline minerals such as magnesium, calcium, iron and zinc.

Phytic acid not only holds on to or chelates important minerals, but also inhibits enzymes that we need to digest our food.

Fermentation activates enzymes in the beans so the cacao beans are activated similar to the activated nuts that we supply.

Fermentation improves digestibility of the beans and increases nutrient availability while also reducing bitterness.

Fermentation does however lead to loss of antioxidants & anandamides so Loving Earth cacao beans are lightly fermented which renders them higher in health promoting antioxidant nutrients than fully fermented beans.

Loving Earth Organic Raw Cacao Unpeeled Beans, Butter, Liquor, Nibs & Powder

  • Description
  • More Details

Our Cacao beans, butter, liquor & powder are from Satipo, Peru. All products are made from lightly fermented cacao beans.

The certified organic indigenous growers use an age old system of permaculture, where the cacao trees are planted under the native forest canopy, along with other fruit trees, such as mango, avocado, papaya etc. All of these trees add their distinctive nuances to the fine multi-floral flavor of this exquisite cacao.

Association of cacao producers of Satipo

Satipo is a region that sits at the edge of Amazon basin at the base of the Andes mountain range. In this area Loving Earth works with 4 small producer groups that are grouped under the umbrella association of cacao producers of Satipo that consists of 164 families in total. This association is certified organic by Control Union and is a member of the Fair Trade Association.  This ensures the cacao is certified organic and fairly traded. Each family has approximately 2 hectares of criollo cacao and coffee bushes grown in the understory of larger trees - mainly coconut and other forest trees. The cacao of this region is known locally as the queen of cacao due to its fine aroma and distinctive flavour that is typical of South American criollos. With the increasing demand for this quality organic cacao the association has been steadily growing by introducing more producers to the organic farming methods and post harvest processing techniques. The association has set up a facility where they can process the cacao beans into cacao liquor and then cold press the liquor into powder and butter. This has taken some local ingenuity as cacao presses are normally heated to 80ºC so that they can operate efficiently. Cold pressing the cacao is a more laborious process and the cacao powder is left with a higher percentage of butter than the conventionally processed cacao. However as you have probably experienced the end product is vastly superior both in flavour and nutritional content. Due to this unique and high quality finished product the producers are able to charge a significantly higher price for their product than the standard fair trade cacao price.

Theobroma Cacao - Food of the Gods

What is Cacao?

Cacao is the seed of a fruit of an Amazonian tree that was brought to Central America during or before the time of the Olmecs. Cacao beans were so revered by the Mayans and Aztecs that they used them as money!

In 1753 Carl von Linnaeus, the 18th-century Swedish scientist, thought that cacao was so important that he named the genus and species of this tree himself. He named this tree: Theobroma cacao, which literally means "cacao, the food of the gods."

The following quote from the "Historia General y Natural de las Indias" (General History and Nature of the Indies) by Fernàndez de Oviedo (1535) describes where cacao originally came from according to Mayan myhthology "Cocoa was more than a simple food. It was a divine food. Quetzalcoalt, the sacred king of the Toltechi, high priest and king of Tula, was the gardener of paradise where the first men lived. From there, he brought the cacahuaquehitl or cacaotero to his country."

"The True History of Chocolate"

This is the title of a book written by Coe and Coe. The authors a husband and wife team, both Harvard academics, intended to document the definitive history of chocolate in this book (as there are many versions of the history of chocolate). Michael Coe a meso-american expert finished the book after his wife Sophie died of cancer while working on the book. For Sophie the history of chocolate was her passion and she spent hundreds of hours tracking down centuries-old manuscripts in the libraries of Europe and North America.

cacao producing regions in MesoamericaThe Coe's refer to the pre-mayan culture of Olmecs, particularly the group based in Izapa in Xoconusco (Soconusco), Mexico as the place where the criollo variety of cacao was originally domesticated by this culture sometime between 400 B.C. and A.D.100. There are still small pockets of these original heirloom varieties of criollo cacao in semi-abondoned plantations around the ruins of Izapa, just outside Tapachula in Xoconusco. The region of Xoconusco and the cacao grown there was so prominent in their account of the true history of Chocolate that the coe's referred to it as "the diamond in the crown of the Aztec empire". The map shows the boundaries of the Aztec empire and the major cacao growing regions of the time just before the spanish conquest. You will notice the Aztecs conquered the small region of Soconusco even though it was far removed from the main part of their territory, just to be able to control the prized cacao grown in the region.

Loving Earth is currently working on a project with the Mayan Network of Organic Organizations in Mexico to restore this original variety of criollo cacao and the traditional system of Permaculture that the Mayans and the Olmecs before them used to cultivate this cacao. The raw cacao beans and nibs that we sell here are from Xoconusco and are the fruits of this project.

Cacao and Traditional Mesoamerican Life

Cacao was considered sacred by the mayans and was the major offering in most of their ceremonies. Even though the cacao bean was central to Mesoamerican life, only the very wealthy and powerful could afford to use it. The Mayan and Aztec priests and royalty drank copious amounts of a drink made from the fermented and crushed cacao seeds. This drink was called xocoatl or "bitter water" in Nahua. Later in Europe xocoatl became "chocolate." Xocoatl was used for ceremonies and religious observances. Priests used it as a part of their prayer offerings. Kings drank it for breakfast. Marriage vows were sealed by drinking xocoatl. It was a major part of every feast. During the 15th century, Nezahualcoyotl's court in Texcoco is recorded as consuming "four xipuipillis" or 32,000 beans each day. In the market place, the beans were accepted as standard currency. On market day, three beans would purchase a turkey egg, 100 beans a slave or a dugout canoe, 65-300 beans a cotton mantle. Cacao beans continued to be used as standard currency until 1887 in Mexico.The cacao of Xoconusco was considered the finest, best quality cacao by the aztec royalty and the largest annual taxes of cacao were collected from this region.

Cacao Beans, Butter, Liquor, Nibs, Powder, Raw Chocolate Bars & Chocolate Coconut Butter

The raw cacao bean is one of nature's most fantastic superfoods due to its wide array of unique properties, many of which are destroyed or corrupted by cooking.

"People always ask me what I eat. Raw, organic Cacao Beans are the primary food in my diet. They have inspired me to eat less and live more. Cacao Beans are truly the food of the gods, the best food ever!" - David Wolfe, co-author of 'Naked Chocolate' book.  Please go below to buy.

Cacao beans contain no sugar and between 12% and 50% fat depending on variety and growth conditions. There is no evidence to implicate cacao bean consumption with obesity.

Magnesium

Cacao is remarkably rich in magnesium.  Cacao seems to be the #1 source of magnesium of any food. This is likely the primary reason women crave chocolate during the menstrual period. Magnesium balances brain chemistry, builds strong bones, and is associated with more happiness. Magnesium is the most deficient major mineral on the Standard American Diet (SAD); over 80% of Americans are chronically deficient in Magnesium!

Stimulant or Superfood?

Cacao contains subtle amounts of caffeine and theobromine. However, experiments have shown that these stimulants are far different when consumed raw than cooked.

Consider the following: Experimental provings of chocolate by homeopaths indicate its stimulating effect when cooked. One experiment conducted with a decoction of roasted ground cacao beans in boiling water produced an excitement of the nervous system similar to that caused by black coffee, an excited state of circulation, and an accelerated pulse. interestingly, when the same decoction was made with raw, unroasted beans neither effect was noticeable, leading the provers to conclude that the physiological changes were caused by aromatic substances released during roasting.

MAO Inhibitors

Cacao seems to diminish appetite, probably due to its monoamine oxidase enzyme inhibitors (MAO inhibitors) - these are different from digestive enzyme inhibitors found in most nuts and seeds. These rare MAO inhibitors actually produce favorable results when consumed by allowing more serotonin and other neurotransmitters to circulate in the brain. According to Dr. Gabriel Cousens, MAO inhibitors facilitate youthening and rejuvenation.

Phenylethylamine (PEA)

Phenylethylamine (PEA) is found in chocolate. PEA is an adrenal-related chemical that is also created within the brain and released when we are in love. This is one of the reasons why love and chocolate have a deep correlation. PEA also plays a role in increasing focus and alertness.

Anandamide (The Bliss Chemical)

A neurotransmitter called anandamide, has been isolated in cacao. Anandamide is also produced naturally in the brain. Anandamide is known as "The Bliss Chemical" because it is released while we are feeling great. Cacao contains enzyme inhibitors that decrease our bodies' ability to breakdown anandamide. This means that natural anandamide and/or cacao anandamide may stick around longer, making us feel good longer, when we eat cacao.

Allergies?

A recent study showed that only one out of 500 people who thought they were allergic to chocolate actually tested positive. Allergies to chocolate are quite rare. It is typically the case that the person is in fact allergic to milk and dairy products.

Cacao & Antioxidants

Raw cacao is very high in antioxidants.  Its ORAC rating is 621 - compare that to blueberries at about 32!

Cacao Butter - Loving Earth - Organic & Raw - Peru

  • Description
  • More Details

Our Cacao Butter is the raw, certified organic, chemical-free extract from raw cacao beans - the pure oil of the cacao bean.

White chocolate is made from cacao butter.

Our Cacao Butter is created through a proprietary cold-pressed method. This process begins by cold-pressing raw, organic Cacao Nibs into a "cake" in such a way that the oil begins to separate from the protein and fiber. The temperature is never allowed to exceed (or even reach) 120 degrees Fahrenheit and is usually 104 degrees Fahrenheit (all other cocoa butters are exposed to temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit!). A high-accuracy thermometer is used throughout processing. Slowly, the pure, liquid cacao butter begins to sift off into a stainless steel valve that takes the cacao butter into a separate container where it is allowed to solidify and then packaged for shipment!

It takes approximately 2.5 to 3 kgs of raw cacao nibs/beans to create 1 kg of raw Cacao Butter.

Cacao Butter is the most prized oil known.

Cacao Powder - Loving Earth - Organic & Raw - Peru 300g

  • Description
  • More Details

The raw chocolate revolution is in full swing!

We are extremely happy to present you with New Zealand's first raw cacao powder that's been organically certified.  As the market has grown, the Peruvian producer has been able to invest in new machinery and more people. Because of this, he's just perfected a technique that makes truly raw organic cacao powder. This means that you can now create the world's healthiest organic raw chocolate treats easier and cheaper than before. Oh, the decadence of it...

What is Raw Cacao Powder (Chocolate Powder)?

It's created by cold-pressing our cacao beans into a cake separating the oil from the protein and fibre. The temperature is never allowed to exceed 47 degrees Celsius and is usually 40 degrees Celsius (all other cocoa powders are exposed to temperatures as high as 150 degrees Celcius!). A high-accuracy thermometer monitors the process. Slowly, the pure, liquid cacao butter begins to sift off down a stainless steel valve. The remaining dry 'cake-like' material is then cold-ground, fine-milled and sifted so that only the finest, most bio-available raw cacao particles filter through into the finished product. This allows for maximum digestion and antioxidant absorption. It has a delightful, full, antioxidant-rich chocolate flavour.

This unique technique uses absolutely no chemicals, no hexane, no solvents.

The Amazing Story of Raw Cacao Powder

ORAC antioxidant laboratory analysis confirms that there are over 25,200 ORAC units in a single spoonful of Raw Cacao Powder!

This delicious, easy-to-use and mega-potent (955 ORAC units per gram!) form of chocolate has broken a world record. Never before has there been 25,200 ORAC units of antioxidant power in a spoonful of anything.

Dark chocolate has been touted as a source of antioxidants, but this raw cacao powder is way beyond that. Living proof that raw is better!

Why Antioxidants?

Antioxidants keep you looking young, they help fight disease, and they do all these things, too:

* Italian researchers found eating 100 grams of dark chocolate each day for 15 days lowered blood pressure in the 15-person study. The University of L'Aquila team also found the body's ability to metabolise sugar -- a problem for people with diabetes -- was improved. Because the effect was believed to be due to antioxidant levels, with Raw Cacao Powder we can likely multiply this effect.

* Dutch researchers indicate that dark chocolate contains four times the amount of catechin antioxidants than black tea, which is suspected of having a protective effect against heart disease and possibly cancer due to its antioxidant properties. With Raw Cacao Powder, it would be 28 times more than Black Tea and potentially 7 times the protection!

* In trials, doctors at Harvard found that Antioxidant compounds called Flavonols in chocolate help the body to produce nitric oxide, a compound essential for proper heart function. (Nitric oxide is also believed by pro bodybuilders to help increase muscularity.) Again, with Raw Cacao Powder, this effect could easily be multiplied.

Raw cacao powder contains about seven times as many antioxidants as cooked cacao powder, that's about 723% more!

Concentrated Nutrients

Because it's concentrated, raw cacao powder has at least 33% more of many of cacao's most vital nutrients! In Raw Cacao Powder, much of the oil is removed, while nearly all of the active nutrients remain. For example...

* The amino acid Tryptophan is found naturally in cacao. Tryptophan enhances relaxation and promotes better sleep. Now you'll get at least 33% more when you use Raw Cacao Powder!

* Researchers have discovered that phenylethylamine (PEA) has a positive effect in enhancing feelings of love. And Chocolate has been proven to be an excellent source of PEA. Now you can love at least 33% more with Raw Cacao Powder!

* Cacao is the richest food source of magnesium of any common food. Magnesium is the number one mineral that assists and supports healthy heart functioning. Now you get at least 33% more magnesium gram-per-gram with Raw Cacao Powder!

* Raw Cacao Powder has at least 33% more Arginine, the aphrodisiac-like amino acid believed by body builders to build muscle and aid in recovery.

* And much, much more!

We could talk forever about the qualities of raw chocolate, but that's what their book Naked Chocolate book is all about!

How To Use Raw Cacao Powder
Here are just a few ideas for using your Raw Cacao Powder. You can:
* Add it to your favorite smoothies (one heaping tablespoon will do) and watch them instantly become Raw Chocolate masterpieces!
* You can blend it with raw coconut oil and agave nectar - for instant raw chocolate syrup! (Then put this on top of raw ice cream or fresh fruit - AMAZING!)
* You can blend it in a food processor with raw nut butters and agave nectar, for the most delicious desert you've ever had. (In fact, similar nut butters mixed with roasted cocoa powder are very expensive in health food stores.)
* You can make any cookie, brownie or pie more chocolatey and delicious - just add a tablespoon or more to taste.
* You can blend it with sweet almond milk. This gives you a creamy dark chocolate milk that's LOADED with antioxidant power and tastes out of this world!

Storage
Please refrigerate or store in a cool, dry place (out of direct sunlight) if you can, though it's not essential. This product is microbe-free and highly-stable.

Check out our Raw Cacao Powder
In the book Naked Chocolate they mentioned the amazing story of the Kuna Indians, who live on the San Blas Islands of Panama. These people have always had extremely low blood pressure and that it did not climb as they got older. In fact, they always remained in remarkably great health.

When the lifestyles of these people were studied, one thing stuck out. The Kuna living on the islands drank a significant amount of locally grown, minimally processed, high-flavonol cocoa.

The best part: for the first time ever, YOU can do the exact same thing. You get to drink and eat this simple, yet powerful food - very likely the most potent source of health-promoting antioxidants in existence.

Now You Can Indulge In Totally Healthy Raw Chocolate in 10 Delicious Flavours!

* Gluten Free
* Dairy Free
* Sugar Free
* Low GI

Made with single origin, certified organic raw cacao from Satipo, Peru, Loving Earth raw chocolate bars are handmade in Melbourne. The cacao is raw, which means our chocolate has up to 4 times as many antioxidants as conventional chocolate. We use organic agave syrup (a natural, low GI sweetener) instead of sugar to create these delicious chocolate bars.  As our chocolate is made with raw criollo cacao it has a slightly lower melting point than regular processed chocolate, so it is best stored below 25ºC.

This chocolate is dark, potent and extremely satisfying - a little goes a long way!

How it's processed

First of all, the cacao pods are harvested from the trees and cracked open. The beans are then taken out and fermented. The level of fermentation affects the flavour; we do a low fermentation of about 45 degrees C, as otherwise the temperatures can get quite high, which affects the structure of the nutrients. The main thing that Loving Earth does differently to other chocolate makers is that we don't roast the raw cacao beans before we process them. The standard procedure in the chocolate industry is to roast the raw cacao, which helps bring out the flavour. It removes a lot of the microbiological contamination they might contain, but it also removes some of the valuable antioxidants contained within. What we do instead is wash them with a citric-based organic disinfectant. Afterwards, they're dried in large commercial dehydrators, at controlled temperatures, before being winnowed into nibs, which basically means taking the skin off them. Then we grind them into liquor, and finally we press them into powder and butter.

Basically, we get five products from this process. We get raw cacao beans, and because we've disinfected and washed them you can eat them - raw! We get raw cacao nibs, which are the beans without the skin. We get raw cacao liquor, which is the nibs ground into a paste. Then when we take the the liquor and put it into a very high-pressure press, which presses all the fat and butter out of it. So the end product is the raw cacao butter and then this hard cake that's milled into raw cacao powder. 1kg of liquor is about 50% fat, so when you press the liquor you get about 40% cacao butter and 60% powder. The powder retains about 10% fat content after pressing, and all the antioxidants plus a lot of the nutrients are concentrated in that powder.

We buy and import these five products, which we use to make our raw chocolate from scratch. When indigenous communities such as our friends in Peru manage to add as much value as possible at the point of origin, not only do we support agricultural industry, but also the development of that community. We get the five basic materials we need to make our chocolate, and they earn more, allowing them to further develop infrastructure to process their cacao.

How it's packaged

Every Loving Earth chocolate bar comes to you in a plant-based inner wrapper to maximise freshness and extend shelf life. These wrappers are not made of plastic, so please recycle them!

The boxes which contain our wrapped chocolate bars are made from 80% recycled post-consumer cardboard and are printed with vegetable inks.

Our Salted Caramel Chocolate is made by blending Amazonico Criollo, Certified Organic, Raw Cacao (35%) from Satipo, Peru, Raw Cashews, Organic Evaporated Coconut Nectar and a pinch of Pink Lake salt, sourced locally from Western Victoria.

Now available in 30g and 80g sizes

A recipe that is sure to hit all the taste buds - this is the salty sibling of our popular Caramel Chocolate! We have created this bar by blending Raw Cacao Butter, Creamy Raw Cashews, Coconut, Evaporated Coconut Nectar and a pinch of Pink Lake salt.

We chose this salt because it’s sourced in Victoria’s West by Mount Zero and the lake’s traditional owners, the Barengi Gadjin Land Council who work together to harvest this mineral-rich salt.

The Raw Cacao Butter and Raw Cashews used to make this chocolate are Fair Trade Certified. We also support the Criollo community by helping them add as much value as possible to raw materials at the point of origin.

Please Note: During the warmer months our chocolate can sometimes melt in transit. There is an increased chance of this in the case of our Caramel Chocolate since it includes raw cashews and whole coconut flesh, both of which contain healthy oils with a low melting point.

What is it?

It’s surprising to note that this chocolate bar is the result of only two plants – the coconut palm tree and cacao. Keeping the ingredients simple and close to their natural state is key to the unique quality of our chocolate.

We’ve always believed that Coconut and Cacao is the perfect marriage – the creaminess of the coconut compliments the rich flavours of cacao beautifully. We’ve played with the subtle balance of this pair to create a new flavour, lighter in cacao content compared to our popular Coconut Mylk Chocolate, one which we could only describe as ‘creamy’!

Coconut Mylk Chocolate Bars Sweetened with Coconut Nectar - Loving Earth - 30g and 80g bars

  • Description
  • More Details

We've combined Coconut and Raw Cacao to create this decadent, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth 'Mylk Chocolate'. Supremely delicious, this healthy treat has up to twice as many antioxidants as conventional chocolate. We use organic evaporated coconut nectar (a natural, low GI sweetener) instead of cane sugar to create this delicious chocolate bar.

People really love the luxuriantly creamy flavour of milk chocolate. The unfortunate fact is that combining dairy with cacao blocks and nullifies many of its nutrients and benefits. Yet the synergy between two superfoods such as Cacao and Coconut is not only extremely healthy, but delicious in a way that simply can’t be imagined without tasting it. Our Mylk Chocolate approximates the flavour and smoothness of milk chocolate, without using any dairy or cane sugar.

The coconut we use at Loving Earth is certified organic and sulphite free. A rich source of lauric acid (antifungal, antimicrobial), coconut is also a rich source of dietary fibre.

We're sure that you'll love Luvju just as much as we do!

Luvju represents the gold standard in Organic Superfoods.

Our three Superfood Luvju Bars combine the ultimate in vitamin C, purple antioxidant and green superfoods with a carefully selected blend of fruits, nuts and cacao. Orange Luvju combines gubinge and camu camu with apricots, coconut and almonds in a zesty synergy of revitalisation. Purple Luvju amalgamates maqui berry powder and acai with cashews, white mulberries, sour cherries and cacao to craft a juicy explosion of energising antioxidant goodness. Green Luvju blends AFA with figs, almonds, goji berries, chia and brasil nut powder to create a protein-rich, brain-stimulating burst of tasty complexity.

Since we wanted to invest all aspects of Luvju with meaning, the packaging we’ve created is based around the classic heart symbol, formed by placing two of our drop-shaped logos together. We worked for a long time to get the first compostable metalised film that’s just become available in Europe. We’ve had it laminated to a paper finish on the outside, so it’s actually 96% plant-based recyclable material, and then designed a beautiful box that it all goes in with an inventive little dispenser printed on recycled board with vegetable inks. The artwork has also had a lot of time put into it, with a unique design on the front of each box incorporating totems which reflect the spirit of each of the flavours.

Our Luvju boxes are printed with vegetable based inks on 100% post consumer recycled fibre. These boxes are recyclable.

The wrapper is compostable and made using sustainably managed renewable resources such as non-GMO corn and wood cellulose. The packaging is compostable only under conditions where heat, water, soil, oxygen and microorganisms are present. The manufacturers have also confirmed that no heavy metals, which would potentially be harmful to worms, are used in their printing inks. This high barrier packaging is perfectly suitable to keep your chocolate fresh and does not contribute to landfill if disposed properly – this is something, which we are very proud of.

Coconut Mylk - Loving Earth Luvyu Raw Organic Chocolate - 35g bar

  • Description
  • More Details

We've combined Coconut and Raw Cacao to create this decadent, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth 'Mylk Chocolate'. Supremely delicious, this healthy treat delivers a dose of these two wonderful superfoods.

What is it?
People really love the luxuriantly creamy flavor of milk chocolate. The unfortunate fact is that combining dairy with cacao blocks and nullifies many of its nutrients and benefits. Yet the synergy between two superfoods such as Cacao and Coconut is not only extremely healthy, but delicious in a way that simply can’t be imagined without tasting it. Our Mylk Chocolate approximates the flavour and smoothness of milk chocolate without using any dairy or cane sugar.

With up to twice as many antioxidants as conventional chocolate, we use organic evaporated coconut nectar (a natural, low GI sweetener) instead of cane sugar to create this delicious treat. The coconut we use at Loving Earth is certified organic and sulphite free. A rich source of lauric acid (antifungal, antimicrobial), coconut is also a rich source of dietary fibre.

We’ve managed to get our hands on the first compostable metalised film that’s just come out in Europe for our Luvju bars. We’ve had it laminated to a paper finish on the outside, so it’s actually 96% plant-based compostable material. The dispenser box is printed on recycled board with vegetable inks and includes a unique design incorporating a totem on the front to reflect the spirit of each flavour.
