Indulge in the taste of nature! We source the best organically-grown cacao beans from the tropical fringe areas of the Andes Mountains and the Amazonian basin, working with Peruvian farming communities who cultivate them in a sustainable, ecological manner. Our raw cacao powder is obtained by pressing the cacao liquor out of sundried cacao beans to extract cacao butter. This leaves a kind of "cacao cake" that is then ground into a fine raw cacao powder.Flavourful and rich, this raw cacao powder has been processed at temperature lower than 46°C, allowing it to retain all the vitamins and minerals of the cacao bean but without the fat. Raw cacao is one of the food that contains the highest source of antioxidants. It also contains iron, magnesium and dietary fiber. A proven heart-healthy food, raw cacao powder helps reduce blood pressure, lower bad cholesterol, lower the risk of blood clots and with blood vessel elasticity.
The history of chocolate begins in Mesoamerica. Chocolate, the fermented, roasted, and ground beans, can be traced to the Mokaya and other pre-Olmec people, with evidence of cacao beverages dating back to 1900 BC.
Chocolate played a special role in both Maya and Aztec royal and religious events. Priests presented cacao seeds as offerings to the gods and served chocolate drinks during sacred ceremonies. All of the areas that were conquered by the Aztecs that grew cacao beans were ordered to pay them as a tax, or as the Aztecs called it, a "tribute".
The Europeans sweetened and fattened it by adding refined sugar and milk, two ingredients unknown to the Aztecs and Mayas. They never worked it into their general diet, but restricted its use to sweets and desserts. In the 19th century, John Cadbury developed a process to make solid chocolate, creating the modern chocolate bar.
This sumptuous organic raw cacao powder is an alternative to conventional processed cocoa and will add intense chocolate flavor to your recipes. Add a spoonful to your smoothies, your oatmeal or your granola for a delicious way to start the day, use it in your baked goods and your raw energy balls, or make it into the best cup of hot chocolate around!
Can be preserved in a cool, dry cupboard protected from light and humidity.
My bag did not have chunks in it. Very smooth and powdery. Good in smoothies.
The Cacao powder is great to use instead of cocoa powder. This product in particular has a lot of large, hard chunks but other than that, it's great.
