Flavanols are plant-based, health-supporting antioxidants naturally occurring in tea, blueberries, red wine, apples and cocoa. Cocoa flavanols are a highly unique blend of supernutrients found only in the cocoa bean. In fact, raw cacao is the earths single top source of antioxidants – with 40X the antioxidants of blueberries per milligram.
Cocoa flavanol content in chocolate and cocoa powder varies considerably based on factors such as growing conditions, agricultural processes, fermentation methods, and roasting techniques. This is why FlavaNaturals® products are developed using a proprietary process for both preserving flavanols and optimizing taste.
