INTRODUCING THE CACAO-FRUIT
Cacao-fruit is an ancient superfruit that has been grown by farmers in South America, Africa and other tropical regions for centuries. But, only a sliver of the fruit has actually made its way into most of our lives as cocoa or chocolate.
Currently the value for farmers is predominantly in the cacao-fruit seeds – which are used to create chocolate. The rest of the fruit is often used for non-food purposes or simply wasted. That’s wasted deliciousness, wasted nutrition and wasted opportunity for cacao farming communities to thrive and prosper.
The beans and the cocoa butter are the only parts of the cacao-fruit used in the majority of foods. This means that the naturally sweet and zesty pulp and the earthy husk that surrounds the beans are usually discarded – a waste of deliciousness!
Cacao-fruit contains important minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, fiber, many essential B vitamins and is also full of antioxidants and polyphenols.
Cacao-fruit is a precious crop grown by farmers who make their livings primarily based on how much of the fruit they are able to sell.
