What is Cholaca?
Pure Liquid Cacao
Boulder, CO based Cholaca was founded in 2012, by Ira Leibtag, with one dream in mind: to bring healthy, organic and regeneratively farmed liquid cacao to the masses, while curating sustainable economic partnerships with farmers throughout Peru and Ecuador.
Cholaca is pure liquid cacao made from one of the planet’s most nutrient-rich superfoods. This delicious product, available as a liquid or in baking wafer form, is also a natural stimulant and mood enhancer that can be enjoyed on its own and easily used in multiple recipes and is vegan, gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly!
Cholaca comes in a few varieties and is made from only two or three ingredients with no preservatives, emulsifiers or additives: this is pure cacao perfection we think you will love!
Cholaca is one of the most heart healthy, nutrient-dense superfoods on the planet. It is the richest source of flavonoids, iron and magnesium and also has the highest levels of antioxidants of any food.
Cholaca sources cacao beans from select farms in Ecuador and Peru that utilize regenerative farming practices.
The “Cacao Buzz”
Cholaca gets its jolt from two hundred different phytochemicals. Some of these phytochemicals increase endorphins including theobromine, a lasting stimulant that quite simply makes you feel amazing!
ProcessWe take great pride in using sustainable ingredients and a simple all natural process to create Cholaca. By consuming this product you are supporting the economic stability of farmers in Ecuador and helping to preserve the rainforest.
