Raw chocolate: a healthy and yummy addition to a protein shake

Pretty much everyone loves chocolate, but many people don’t know, or never stop to consider, the fact that chocolate originally comes from a plant. Cacao beans have many of the benefits which are also found in vegetables. But cacao beans are usually processed, and other things are added before we eat the cacao in the form of a chocolate bar. Raw cacao beans contain the most nutrients, which means this is the healthiest form of cacao to eat. The best way to eat cacao beans is blended in a smoothie.

The benefits of raw cacao beans and chocolate. Are they healthy in protein shakes?

Raw cacao beans are packed with antioxidants, which protect our bodies from free radicals. The flavonoids in raw cacao beans also produce nitric oxide, which helps to regulate blood pressure and balance hormone levels. Cacao beans also have huge benefits for your health: they stimulate the kidneys and reduce the risk of heart disease. So there’s no reason to eat less chocolate, but it is important to choose the healthiest possible option: the one which contains the best cacao. With cacao beans, you can add extra nutritional values to your meals.

Stefano Vicinoadio

Who is Stefano Vicinoadio? Here at Bertyn we got to know him at an organic fair in Germany. We immediately hit it off and it turned into a great working relationship. Stefano is actually a photographer, and it is his passion. But his love for cooking has resulted in the most delicious recipes... together with great photos.

Stefano describes himself as colourful, loud, a vegan, a friend, a discoverer, a digital nomad and straightforward.Stefano changed tack and started to eat and live a healthy vegan lifestyle His life took a wholly different course when he became very ill. At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan.Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan. A vegan eats no animal products whatsoever, taking it a step beyond vegetarianism. Vegans don't eat eggs, dairy products or honey. These recipes by Stefano will prove to you that there's still a great deal left to work with. See the recipes and try them out for yourself!

What fans say about Bertyn

Miki Duerinck & Kristin Leybaert

cooks of the vegetarian cookery studio and authors of 4 vegetarian cooking books, Ghent

“Even if we never manage to convert the world to the vast majority of meat replacements, one product remains decidedly hopeful: the Manitoba wheat and soy sauce-based, traditionally produced seitan manufactured by Bertyn. It brings together the two qualities required if you justifiably want to call a product a ‘meat replacement’: it is pure and natural and very tasty. It is on sale in health food shops, vacuum packed as seitan steak, seitan supreme or in ‘block form’. It is easy to prepare: the seitan is baked, steamed or cooked in a flash because it never requires lengthy cooking times. So from now on no restaurant has a valid excuse for not putting such a vegetarian dish on the menu.”
