Giddy Yoyo's meticulous effort to use only Wild Ecuadorian Heirloom Arriba Nacional CACAO puts us in a category of our own; we select only fully mature ripe pods by hand from mature trees (which are a minimum of 30 years old, and some as old as 80 years) grown in mineral rich volcanic high elevation soil. These trees are never irrigated from potentially contaminated rivers and streams as the water source is from rain, the tree’s deep root structure and pure mountain springs. Giddy Yoyo also works directly with those who supply the raw cacao pods (aka Direct Trade) and eagerly compensate above ‘Fair Trade’ standards. It is our goal to ensure that everyone along the supply chain is well taken care of. Happy workers = happy food= happy people!
The raw CACAO bean may be one of nature’s most fantastic superfoods due to its mineral content and wide array of unique properties. CACAO may be the number one source of magnesium of any food on the planet. It also contains one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of any food in the world, and may be exceptionally high in chromium, iron, anandamide (the bliss chemical), theobromine, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C, Omega-6 fatty acids, phenylethylamine (PEA), trytophan, serotonin, and more.
CACAO is likely the single greatest weight loss tool as it has the ability to temporarily shut off the appetite control centre of the brain. CACAO may also be a highly effective natural energy enhancer and aphrodisiac.
We go to great lengths to ensure the pureness & quality of our CACAO. There is a complete lack of mycotoxins, mold, yeast, and fungus in Giddy Yoyo CACAO and each batch is lab tested. These toxins are the cause of the adrenal response of jitteriness that is similar to caffeine stimulation in many cacao products. Contrary to popular opinion, cacao contains very little, if any, caffeine. It has been clinically demonstrated that cacao does not elevate blood sugar in the same way as a caffeine-containing food or beverage. Instead, Giddy Yoyo CACAO helps to create a cosmic conscious connection and cause pineal gland expansion.
Giddy Yoyo CACAO has a deep, intense, raw chocolate flavour. This CACAO is processed in our own state-of-the-art facility on custom artisan equipment that has never seen any other cacao but our own guaranteeing no possible integration with the low quality hybrid cacao that is pervasive in the area. What we have helped create is extremely unique in the chocolate industry. And to take it next level, our sacred CACAO remains 100% raw from start to finish.
