Raw cacao is basically the remains of the cacao seed after the cocoa butter is extracted. Raw cacao is supercharged with magnesium and flavanoids, which makes it good for you inside and out. Cacao beans are rich in a number of essential minerals, including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese.
