Why Raw Cacao Beans are preferable over cocoa beans

Despite all the buzz over chocolates being a healthy snack, not all chocolates can offer health benefits. Its nutritional value largely depends on the cacao beans used in the chocolate. Raw cacao beans are gently handled and processed which maintains the naturally-occurring compounds and micronutrients which makes them superior to ordinary cocoa beans not just in aroma and flavor, but also in nutritional content and health benefits.
