Raw Chocolate: Sounds Tasty, But What Is It?

Chocolate is chocolate, right? Maybe not. According to a recent article from the BBC, several manufacturers have now started selling a “raw” version of the ancient treat, which is already eaten by many people in cacao-growing regions. This chocolate is made from cacao beans just like any other, but rather than roasting the beans prior to grinding, the beans are left outdoors to dry naturally. According to manufacturers, the unroasted cacao beans retain more nutrients such as iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, and vitamin C, and are known to have high antioxidant content. Best of all, it's said that raw chocolate has a more natural taste than using roasted beans.
