It's a blend of our ceremonial cacao from Bolivia we offered last summer and Allulose, an all-natural sweetener. After finding these wonderful beans, we knew they would be the perfect flavor profile with their rich chocolate notes and low bitterness. The bar is blended to have a cacao-forward flavor, (not a sugar-laden one), so it tastes like a dark, 85% bar. Wonderfully tasty!
Allulose is classified as a natural 'rare sugar'. Figs, beets, corn, and raisins have small quantities of allulose. As it's a natural sweetener, it has the mouthfeel of sugar but "at least 90% is excreted by the kidneys without being metabolized. This means that in a functional sense allulose has 95% fewer calories than sucrose and is why the FDA determined in 2019 that it does not need to be listed under total or added sugar." So you get to experience the sweetness, but not the negative health effects of conventional sugars.

I have been drinking your ceremonial cacao for about 1 1/2 years now and it is the only cacao that I drink. That you for such a great product.
Just want to let you know that I absolutely love your cacao... I use it few times a week for meditation or ceremony when I have more time or when circumstances bring me to deep refection or discomfort. Connecting with Mama Cacao always brings me in a better space.
I can't wait to attend one of your ceremonies on line...missing it and missing you all:) Seems like there is has been not enough time but in December I will put it on my schedule, if there is one.
Thank you for your work. I appreciate all you do!
I’ve had this wonderful medicine multiple times and finally bought my own. We love it! Delicious and powerful - the real deal. The chocolate bars are also fantastic
Pure Cacao Flavor
Alto Beni, Amazon, Bolivia
Deep in the Amazon basin, this cacao is grown by 500 smallholder farmers of the Agroecological Cooperative of Alto Beni (CIAAB). The varietals are Hybrid, mostly Trinitario, and Nativo (wild). Great care is taken in the growing conditions to nurture these beans towards their amazing rich flavor profile.
These amazing beans are hand crafted in micro batches to draw out the rich cacao notes. We roast in small batches to ensure consistency, grind in a stone melanger to get that silky cacao liquid and then temper in the final mould so you hear that wonderful snap as you break off a piece.
