Is Sacred Chocolate the future of Chocolate?

April 10, 2011

Is Sacred Chocolate® the future of chocolate. David Wolfe and Steve Adler think so. They are the first chocolate manufacturers ever to create a raw (low-temperature processed), organic, chocolate bar. Wolfe and Adler are the owners of Sacred Chocolate and their chocolates are hand made with “much love, gratitude, and high phi-bration” in a small custom-designed, certified organic, vegan, carbon balanced factory in San Rafael, California. Their committment is to provide the most exceptionally tasting and nutritionally beneficial chocolate and along the way, educating people on the super-food properties of raw chocolate.

Raw cacao is one of the most, if not the most, nutrient rich and complex foods known to man. And it’s full of polyphenol antioxidants. All chocolate starts out as raw cacao “beans” or nuts – the seed of the cacao fruit which grows on a tropical tree. The usual roasting/processing of chocolate destroys a significant amount of its valuable health supporting properties. Much of the mood elevating, antidepressant and antioxidant qualities are eliminated with heating.

Sacred Chocolate® is a very special artisan raw chocolate. The process start with the whole bean and slowly stone grinding it, husk and all, at low temperature. Grinding the husk takes extra time and keeping the chocolate at a low “raw” temperature (below 115 degrees Fahrenheit) also takes extra time.  Besides the husk of the bean, which they believe has amazing nutritional properties, in many of our chocolates we include exotic whole herbs which also must be ground right into the chocolate.  This special process takes several days to accomplish in order to getSacred Chocolate® as smooth as silk.  Bringing particle size down to the micron level ensures maximum nutrient absorption by the body. Sacred Chocolate believes in stone grinding because during the process, microscopic particles of the granite stone are absorbed by the chocolate which enhances both its flavor and nutrition.  Most modern machines use steel to grind cacao beans resulting in having to use high powered magnets to extract the tiny steel particles that end up in the chocolate during the grinding process.

As a cutting-edge chocolate company, Sacred Chocolate is absolutely fanatical about bringing you the very best chocolate they possibly can and that includes being Organic and certified “to the hilt”.
