Theobromine & Caffeine
Does cacao contain caffeine? Contrary to popular opinion,
cacao is a poor source of caffeine. A typical sample of cacao nibs or
beans will yield anywhere from zero caffeine to 1,000 parts per million
(ppm) of caffeine (less than 1/20th of the caffeine present in
Theobromine, like caffeine, and also, like the asthma-improving
methylxanthine theophylline, belongs to the chemical group known as
xanthine alkaloids. Chocolate products contain some caffeine, but not
nearly enough to explain the attractions, fascinations, addictions, and
effects of chocolate.
Cacao usually contains about 1 percent theobromine. Theobromine is an
effective antibacterial substance that kills streptococci mutans (the
primary organism that causes cavities). Theobromine is a chemical
relative of caffeine but is not a nervous system stimulant. Theobromine
dilates the cardiovascular system, making the heart's job easier. This
is one of the major reasons why cacao is part of a heart healthy diet.
About Sacred Chocolate:
What makes Sacred Chocolate® different from other chocolate?
Founded in 2006, by raw chocolate pioneer and author, David Wolfe, and raw food enthusiast, entrepreneur, and minister, "Sacred" Steve Adler, Sacred Chocolate® is slowly stone ground below 115 degrees Fahrenheit from bean to bar and is hand poured and hand wrapped with much love, gratitude, and high “phi-bration" in a small custom-designed, certified organic, vegan, carbon balanced factory in California. Our raw chocolate only includes healthy sweeteners such as Maple,
Inulin from Jerusalem Artichoke, Erythritol, and Stevia. (We never use
cane sugar.) We are committed to creating the most exceptionally
tasting and nutritionally beneficial chocolate in the world, and
educating people on the super-food properties of RAW chocolate.
What is special about Raw Chocolate?
Raw cacao is one of the most, if not THE most, nutrient rich and
complex foods known to man. All chocolate starts out as raw cacao
“beans” or nuts - the seed of the cacao fruit which grows on a tropical
tree. The usual roasting/processing of chocolate destroys a significant
amount of its valuable health supporting properties. Much of the mood
elevating, antidepressant and antioxidant qualities are eliminated with
Redefining the History of Chocolate
Sacred Chocolate® is the future of chocolate. Our goal is to create
the greatest chocolate bar and chocolate products in the world. We are

(low-temperature processed), organic, finely tempered chocolate bar.
Through the use of healthy herbs, love, gratitude, prayers, music, and
mantras, Sacred Chocolate® has the potential to awaken consciousness.
With no trans fatty acids, and lots of polyphenol antioxidants, Sacred
Chocolate® is a SUPER FOOD containing all the health benefits of raw
chocolate without refined cane sugar. The alchemy of this chocolate,
made with love & gratitude, and for your health, has manifested on
mother earth at this time to help bring about a planetary shift in
consciousness towards love and oneness.
Mission & Vision of Sacred Chocolate
"Love is a gift, a miracle, a mystery. You are led to its threshold
by your affinities, by your inclinations, and by the yearnings of your
heart, although its power and presentation is by grace, not by
expectation, demand, or requirement. Love is the ultimate paradox, for
it is the lamb that is also the lion. Love is the ultimate power, which
resides in surrender."
-- “Love Without End Jesus Speaks” by Glenda Green, Chapter: "The Beloved”.
