Urban Remedy's Mint Cacao Chip Nice Cream
The (in)credible science
The organic cacao in this recipe isn't just delicious: it can also help build environmental and economic sustainability in the tropics. One study found that organic cacao production offered more economic and environmental sustainability than conventional cacao production. Using the SMART-Farm tool to measure roughly 300 variables of sustainability across nearly 400 organic and conventional cacao farms, the study found that organic farms had higher profitability (20%), more gender equity (27%), less land degradation (24%) and water use (29%), fewer greenhouse gases (22%), and more biodiversity (26%).
