Cocoa facts

A real heart opener

If you start with your cocoa moment and connect with your heart, it is good to know that cocoa naturally contains very nice substances that can help with this. Such as tryptophan, an amino acid involved in the production of serotonin, the "happiness hormone". This can have a positive effect on mood and reduce stress.

Another beautiful substance found in cocoa is phenylethylamine, also known as the "love hormone." It can improve mood and stimulate the production of endorphins.

Holy and healthy

Another nice substance in cocoa is the flavonoids, which can contribute to a healthy heart by improving blood flow, reducing inflammation and regulating blood pressure.

Research also suggests that these flavonoids can improve cognitive functions, including memory and concentration.

Natural

Our cocoa powder is 100% natural. This means that our cocoa powder is NOT alkalized, we have kept it as pure as possible. And what is alkalizing? Alkalizing is a treatment
with an alkaline, in this case potassium carbonate (potassium carbonate). By reacting with this excipient you can slightly increase the PH value of the powder. This brings out the cocoa flavor a bit more compared to the fruity flavors you taste in natural powders. This is often used in the larger chocolate industry to achieve a more stable cocoa taste.
