RAW Cacao, not to be confused with highly processed chocolate bars sold these days, is one of the richest sources of anti-oxidants out there! It is jam packed with minerals and is especially rich in iron, zinc and magnesium. It also contains neurotransmitters like serotonin, which helps keep the feel-good chemicals in your brain active and buzzing for a long time after you've had your chocolate.
As more of us seek healthy chocolate alternatives without all the added sugars, milk fat and artificial additives and preservatives, I set it upon myself to find the best authentic Raw Chocolate products out there. This grueling task required eating enormous quantities of chocolate…or at least that’s what I told myself in between tastings! In the end, I found a few chocolate products that fit the category in Dubai, there may be more out there but I think my chocolate fest needs to come to an end very quickly:
Both of these are sold in Organic Food and Café.
Pacari Chocolate: All of the raw ingredients are 100% organic and produced according to fair and equitable standards. New flavors include yummy Lemongrass and Wild Blueberry.
Conscious Chocolate: These organic, raw, handmade bars are sweetened with Agave nectar (cactus syrup) which doesn’t imbalance the natural blood sugar levels. The flavors are exquisite, and range form Goji Berry and coconut flakes to bars infused with therapeutic essential oils such as rose and tangerine.
