ORGANIC CACAO POWDER

Originating  from  the  tropical  climates  in  South  America,  the  Theobroma  Cacao  tree  is
sacred amongst the Mayans and Aztecs. Produced by organic growers in Peru, Cacao beans
contain  more  antioxidants than  red  wine  and  3  times  more  than  green  tea,  Cacao  beans
embody a rich source of minerals. Harvested by hand as pods, the raw beans are selected
for  the  finest  quality  and  fermented  to  reduce  their  initial  bitterness.  After  cleaning  the
dried beans in natural water,  they are peeled and their  core  extracted to  be  broken into
“nibs”.  These  are  ground  into  Cacao  paste.  The  fat  from  the  paste  is  extracted  from  the
solid  part  and  the  residue  dried  and  finely  ground  into  Cacao  powder.  Cacao  powder
contains  less  fat  and  more  fibre  than  the  beans.  The  production  process  preserves  a
significant proportion of the nutritional value of the  beans without any additives. Organic
Cacao Powder is certified organic by the Soil Association under the code GB-ORG-05
