Description

About our raw, organic cacao powder

Soil AssociationCountry of Origin: Peru
Botanical Name: Theobroma cacao

Organic, raw cacao powder is rich in health benefits, as well as boasting a delicious, full flavour with a host of different uses. Containing minerals like magnesium, iron and calcium, magnesium is also very high in antioxidants.

There’s a reason so many people reach for chocolate when they need cheering up, raw cacao can actually boost serotonin levels in the brain (that’s what they call ‘the happy hormone’), and contains a molecule called anandamide, which could contribute to feelings of euphoria.

Grown and produced in Peru, the raw cacao beans are shelled and ground to make a raw cocoa liquor.  The liquor hardens to an unsweetened ‘chocolate’ when it cools below 95°f / 35°c.

High pressure and very low heat (below 42°c to ensure the product remains raw) is applied to the cocoa liquid to separate the butter and the ‘cake’ (the powder). The cake is then finely ground to make the highest quality, tastiest and most beneficial form of raw cacao powder.

Suggested use:

This cacao is best used in its raw form to harness its multitude of nutritional benefits. It is delicious when made into raw chocolate with raw cacao butter, natural sweeteners and additional ingredients of your choice (nuts, berries, dried fruit, super green powders, lucuma etc) and is also wonderful in smoothies, shakes and raw puddings.
