Sacred Chocolate Technical Specifications

Sacred Chocolate® has been tested by an independent laboratory and proven to have approximately twice the antioxidant level (as measured by an ORAC test) of chocolate at the same cacao solids content that has been traditionally roasted, cooked and/or milled or processed at high temperature. 

Sacred Organic Raw Chocolate

Sacred Chocolate® is organic vegan stone ground raw chocolate.  We use a special low temperature stone grinding process that really brings out the terrior of our beans.  We also use healthy alternative sweeteners such as Maple Sugar, Inulin from Jerusalem Artichoke, and Erythritol.  All our chocolate is hand poured and hand wrapped in a small custom designed, carbon balanced factory in Marin County, California.
