Powerful foods are what Abejitas is all about. That’s why we chose raw honey to lightly sweeten our chocolate instead of refined sugar or other highly processed and high glycemic sweeteners.
Honey has been known for its strong healing properties. Starting with the sugar content alone, honey is lower on the glycemic scale and contains less glucose and fructose than sugar. This means that honey keeps glucose levels in the body more balanced. It’s also packed with other nutrients such as pollen, amino acids, enzymes, minerals, and antioxidants.
Diving deeper, honey is packed with phytonutrients which are known for an antioxidants as well as anti-bacterial and anti-fungal effects. It also is known to facilitate a slow peroxide effect on the body, helpful for curing gut health problems.
At Abejitas, we use raw honey to keep these powerful healing properties in an unadulterated form, which, when combined with the powerful properties of other superfoods such as cacao, can be very healing for the mind, body and soul!
