The generic name of raw cacao – Theobroma – literally translates to ‘food of the gods’.
Cacao was first cultivated by the Olmecs in Mexico as early as 1000 BC and was used to make fortifying beverages. Over time the Mayans and Aztecs adopted cacao into their own cultures, incorporating the drink into ceremonial rituals and even using cocoa beans as currency, so highly was it valued!
The theobromine in raw cacao is thought to have a positive impact on mood. Cacao is also rich in anandamide which is known as the bliss chemical - the name comes from the Sanskrit word Ananda meaning bliss!
