What does low Cadmium mean?Updated 8 months ago

Cadmium is a heavy metal and is not easily processed by the body and therefore accumulates with possible detrimental effects on the kidneys, lungs, bones, and foetal development.  

Food (especially cacao and cocoa) can be a high source of cadmium depending on where the beans are grown and processed. 

When creating our collagen creamers, we wanted to reduce exposure to heavy metals, therefore we only use raw Organic Low Cadmium Cacao which has been lab tested. 

We also test for salmonella, moulds and PH level.
