Does anyone really care? They’re all delicious.
When we first saw the word ‘cacao’, we thought it was cocoa spelled wrong! True story. But after delving a little deeper we discovered there were quite big differences and so we use Cacao to dust one of our most popular sugar dustings for OMG! Decadent Donuts – Cacao Delish.
The main reason we use cacao is because it is the purest form and it is really high in antioxidants and is not as processed. It has even more antioxidants than blueberries and bananas.
Cacao is considered a super food. It is also a vegan product. It is the flavour-determining the raw material of chocolate but chocolate has added milk so obviously we can’t use that as we are vegan and free from dairy and lactose.
Cacao contains Polyphenols which is an antioxidant that inhibits inflammation, protects against free radicals and slows down the combustion within body cells. It also contains lots of magnesium, which has a positive influence on our energy metabolism, nerve impulse transfer and muscle functionality and helps with sleep better. Not just that but also Phenylethylamine, a substance that would make you feel in love and thus act as a mild antidepressant. Cacao beans also have flavonoids that have a protective effect against cardiovascular disease.
We’ve never claimed our donuts are healthy, but OMG! do we need any more excuses to eat Cacao Delish donuts? We think not.
