Addictive. People are these days even beginning to look to other things. A close relative of it called cuppa, which is a type of cacao that doesn’t have those problems. Another member of the bromine family but these are great. Really fun and great to get into. The food of course has no negative side effect like the bean which it does have some affect on the liver and the kidney and the adrenals in the long run, but in the short run it’s a great thing to get into. So let’s open up this pod.John Yeah let’s open it up.
So now Jeremy is opening the cacao with a machete. And they’re really hard and there you go. Inside this is the the fruit. This is the non-edible part. This thing is really rock hard like a think think a winter squash hard right here man. You could barely break it.Jeremy And this is the part that we’re gonna be sucking the sucking off of right there.John Oh look this one’s sprouting. Sprouted cacao.So basically we’re just sucking off the white like pith type part on there the nutrients right. And that has no negative effects.Jeremy No negative effects right.John But just positive effects.Jeremy It’s just fruit and water and little bit of Theobald.
And a little bit cacao nibs of mineral sand nutrients but yeah. A very low level kind of a thing as you can see there’s not a lot of it anyway.John Yeah there’s not a lot it’s mostly all seeds. So Jeremy you know I know that you found out and educated the raw food community about the cacao but now you you rarely eat cacao yourself right. Is that true?Jeremy Barely. Yes very true.John Now why is that and what did you find?Jeremy I found you know that it was a really big mood swing creator and created a lot of mood swings for people if they didn’t consume it everyday. That they basically would go into these wild rides myself included.
From it where it caused cacao nibs substitute a lot of personal upheaval.People were getting angry and kind of like getting very testy very easily from it. It seemed to be very similar to anyone that was going through a withdrawal symptom from caffeine.People that were used to drinking soda everyday, drinking coffee everyday, or eating chocolate everyday, all of a sudden when we took it away from them those.
