Organic Cacao Powder
Organic Cacao Powder is made from cold pressed, finely ground organic cacao nibs. Eaten and cultivated by the ancient Mayans, cacao is considered a 'superfood' that will leave you feeling happy and revitalised. It is rich in antioxidants, and contains goodness such as magnesium, calcium, copper, zinc and more.
Organic cacao powder is the less processed and highly nutritious alternative to cocoa powder, which is used to make chocolate. Unlike cocoa powder, cacao has not been processed at high temperatures and therefore is able to lock in its high nutrient qualities.
Cacao Powder has a slightly bitter chocolate taste and is great for baking, raw desserts and smoothies. Use as a nutritious substitute for cocoa powder in any recipe.
No GMO. No added sugar or preservatives.
How to use
Being the less processed and more nutritious option, organic cacao powder is the perfect alternative to cocoa in baking or desserts. Simply substitute cacao in place of cocoa powder in any recipe.
Growing and processing
Organic cacao is picked from the tree and undergoes a natural fermentation process within it’s fruit like pod before it’s bean are extracted. The beans are then dried, have their shells removed and are crushed into a paste. This paste is then pressed at low temperatures to separate the oils (cacao butter) from the fibre which is finely milled and turned into velvety cacao powder.
