Cacao Liquor Paste – Raw

Cacao Liquor Paste is the pure essence of cacao! Many people consider eating chocolate a “guilty pleasure”. But the reputation of chocolate as a junk food should more accurately be attributed to the harmful effects of commercial processing and refining techniques, and the other ingredients commonly added, most notably white sugar. All chocolate is made from the cacao (cocoa) bean, and cacao beans in their natural, unprocessed, unadulterated state are rich in nutrients.

Soil AssociationIngredients: 100% Cacao Liquor
Country of Origin: Peru

Botanical Name: Theobroma cacao

How our raw cacao liquor is processed:

The beans are fermented then sundried naturally. Temperature tests are run during these phases and we have been assured: “the temperature of the cacao bean inside its skin never heats up over the proverbial raw standard of 118f”. The beans are then stone-milled into nibs, then milled further to make paste.

Is it ceremonial grade?

We get this question all the time and the truth is, the whole ceremonial grade thing is a bit of a sticky subject. There’s actually no legal definition or certification in place for any cacao being ceremonial grade, it seems like if a retailer says it’s ceremonial grade…then it is. This is why we’ve made the conscious choice to avoid using the term and have decided to focus on the organic (something that can be legally qualified) and traceability side of things. So even though there’s no difference between our stock and what other retailers call ceremonial grade (assuming theirs is actually certified organic), we feel that it would have been immoral to use this terminology.

Possible benefits of raw cacao liquor

Cacao boats more antioxidant flavonoids than any other plant-based food, including blueberries, red wine, and black and green teas. In fact, it has up to four times the quantity of antioxidants found in green tea.

Cacao liquor paste is also rich in minerals, in particular, magnesium, iron and calcium. Containing healthy amounts of sulphur, raw cacao can contribute to healthy and glowing skin, hair and nails.
