Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week. 

Today's Ayurveda inspired* cacao offering was a Sea Salt infused with Turmeric 70% Cacao (bar) from Elements Truffles (Kearny, NJ).  

This bar (and all Elements Truffles dark bars sampled to date) have a soft texture/bite and are gently sweetened not with sugar, but local honey. And each one has been infused with different flavor elements in a base of smooth flavored cacao (and with Peruvian Criollo cocoa butter).

Today's bar was lightly salted and seasoned with sea salt and turmeric.

Ingredients: Organic Raw Cacao Butter (Peruvian Criollo); Raw Honey; Organic Raw Cacao Powder; Organic Turmeric Root Powder (from India); Sea Salt (from a family farm in Greece).

*Statements on the bar's packaging read: "Turmeric helps balance - Vata, Pitta and Kapha—all three doshas." And, "Curcumin in turmeric stimulates the body's own antioxidant mechanism and also helps delay aging."
