What Is It?
Love that cup of hot chocolate? Try this delicious instant Raw Cacao-Quinoa mix comprising of 5 superfoods - the best premium variety of criollo cacao beans, our favourite quinoa, the anthocyanin-rich purple corn, mesquite and ending with a touch of Ceylon cinnamon. Nature's Superfoods' RAW CACAO-QUINOA is the perfect and healthy chocolate instant mix with no additives (like maltodextrin) or preservatives. This instant mix provides an amazing amount of nutrients to keep you energized and in a good mood!
The first superfood ingredient is RAW CACAO powder, of the premium criollo cacao bean variety. This is raw cocoa powder at its purest, and most nutrient-dense state. It has lots of bliss nutrients (like PEA and anandamide), vitamins, minerals and super-high levels of heart-healthy flavonoids (that can be easily destroyed when processed into regular chocolate).
The second superfood ingredient is the popular QUINOA Seed (whole grain), popularly known as the Mother of All Grains. A high-protein, high-fiber whole grain that contains all 9 essential amino acids (including lysine), B vitamins, folate, calcium, magnesium, a diverse array of antioxidants and many more nutrients. The Quinoa powder used in this mix has the same nutritional profile as the Quinoa seeds, and is more easily digested by the human body than cooked Quinoa seed or Quinoa flour.
The third superfood ingredient is the PURPLE CORN (whole grain), which is not your regular GMO white/yellow corn! Grown in the Andes mountains of Peru, the Purple Corn with its beautifully deep purple kernels (purple foods are good for you!), is one of nature’s richest sources of anthocyanin antioxidants that help protect the heart, promote blood circulation, normalize high blood pressure, and improve cholesterol levels and diabetic conditions (by enhancing glucose metabolism). Purple Corn has higher antioxidant capacity than blueberries and other corn varieties, making it an exciting new superfood of our time. Purple Corn also has higher protein and fiber content than white or yellow corn. Grown in the Andes, Purple Corn is a non-GMO superfood.
Then comes the MESQUITE flour made from the pods of the Mesquite tree. Mesquite is highly effective in balancing blood sugar and for bone health. It is a highly nutritious (high in complete protein, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulfur, dietary fiber), versatile flour that imparts a slightly sweet and smoky taste in recipes. . Mesquite also makes you feel full longer.
Lastly we have the CEYLON CINNAMON, which gives a delicious twist to this mix. Prized for its medicinal properties in Chinese and Ayurveda traditions, Ceylon Cinnamon can lower blood sugar levels, improve some key risk factors for heart disease, including cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure, and has anti-bacterial and antifungal properties.
Certified organic with USDA and EU. Unsweetened, no additives (like maltodextrin) or preservatives.

1. Promotes Heart & Brain Health- Raw Cacao is one of the richest whole food sources of flavonoid antioxidants and magnesium (an essential mineral often lacking in our modern diet of processed foods). Magnesium is vital for heart & brain health, regulates high blood pressure, regulates blood sugar, helps relax muscles and is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.
2. Supports Bone Health, Improves Migraine as well as Hypertension Conditions – The Raw Cacao, Quinoa and Mesquite are all good sources of magnesium which enhances the absorption of calcium in our bodies. Magnesium also helps in relaxing blood vessels and lowering blood pressure. Migraine sufferers are also advised to stay away from artificial sweeteners (like aspartame) and foods containing additives (like MSG).
3. Aids in Weight Management - Raw Cacao helps suppress appetite due to its coumarin content. Quinoa, purple corn and mesquite make you stay full longer on fewer calories while providing good amounts of nutrition like protein (including amino acid lysine), minerals and dietary fibre.
4. Lifts Your Mood - makes you happy. Raw Cacao naturally contains high levels of bliss nutrients such as Phenylethylamine (PEA) and Anandamide. PEA also helps increase focus and alertness. As PEA is heat-sensitive, Raw Cacao naturally contains much more PEA than regular cocoa or chocolate.
