Cocoa – The Latin name for cocoa—Theobroma—literally means, “Food of the gods.” Cocoa has many benefits including its rich taste. Cocoa contains hundreds of compounds, including polyphenols, a type of antioxidant.
Fiber – each OG Gourmet Hot Cocoa has 3gr of fiber per serving. Organo™ Gourmet Hot Cocoa provides cocoa with ganoderma which naturally contains fiber.
Ganoderma lucidum– also known as the red Reishi mushroom, this mild flavor adds a note of depth to the cocoa flavor and brings it’s own benefits. Ganoderma mushrooms provide triterpenoids and amino acids. Ganoderma mushrooms are ‘adaptogens’.
Ganoderma lucidum has been used in traditional Asian culture for thousands of years. The name Ganoderma lucidum means “spiritual potency”, while the Japanese name Reishi can be translated as “King of Herbs”.
Malt Extract – Malt extract helps give the OG Gourmet Hot Cocoa an ‘old fashioned’ chocolate flavor.
DID YOU KNOW?
Over 70% of the world’s cocoa comes from West Africa, which provides the bulk of cocoa used for mass-produced chocolate. A cocoa tree only produces about 1000 beans, or enough to make about 2 pounds of chocolate. A cocoa pod is about the size of a pineapple and holds approximately 30 to 50 seeds – just about enough to make seven milk chocolate bars or two dark chocolate bars.
