I know with the many positive aspects of cacao which I applied to eat in the form of raw, unsweetened nibs or powder that I'd use in my primal desserts. Some hard core paleo adherents avoid cacao, because they take into consideration it neolithic as it is indigenous to the Americas. Anyway, I do eat some neolithic foods, like butter, coconut, avocados and roasted cashews (not in peanut/safflower oil and not raw on account of a toxin they include). Nonetheless, I make an effort to steer clear of legumes. I know that cacao beans or the seeds of the plant , encased in pods. Although they're referred to as "beans," are they genuinely legumes like peanuts, soy, black-eyed peas, kidney, etc? I don't recall ever having the mal-digestion issues I've had with legumes with cacao league.
