Cacao beans


Organic cacao beans are, as well as coffee beans, one of the main agricultural products of Sierra Leone. Local farmers take care of the cacao beans, nurturing the plants the best way possible. The cacao is crucial for economy in this region. As a result of natural conditions (in which they grow the beans), our cacao beans are 100 % organic and their quality is considered to be the best in the world. Unroasted cacao beans are source of minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and stimulants. The beans contain no trans fat no cholesterol. Therefore, the beans are considered superfood, thus a regular consumption is recommended. They contain more antioxidants and flavonoids than acai, blueberries, cranberries or grapes. The consumption of these beans prevents heart diseases, decreases high blood pressure and improve blood flow. They may stimulate endorphins in human body, therefore they have similar effect as antidepressants.
A cacao bean is an elemental component of chocolate. Unroasted dry cacao beans are very popular as an alternative of chocolate. The beans are consumed alone, they quickly provide energy, as well as satisfy hunger or support concentration. The beans taste like nuts, bitter and sweet flavour. The flavour is very similar to dark chocolate, although it is a bit more bitter.
