Foods Alive Raw Cacao Powder 8 oz
Cacao beans are the source of all chocolate, cacao nibs, cacao powder, and cacao butter. Cacao beans were so highly cherished by the Aztecs and Mayans that they were often used as currency and in religious ceremonies. Our cacao powder comes from cacao beans that are grown on the island of the Dominican Republic under a dense forest canopy basking in the shade of tropical fruit trees and the Caribbean sun. They are grown in nutrient-rich island soil, which gives it a unique flavor profile that is unlike any other. Each pod of cacao beans is hand-picked and selected only when ripe and mature, providing you with the best possible flavor and nutritional value. Cacao powder is created by cold-pressing raw, organic cacao beans into a pressed cake separating the oil from the protein and fiber. A high-accuracy thermometer monitors the process, so that the temperature is never allowed to exceed 120° F and is usually 104° F. All other cocoa powders are exposed to temperatures as high as 300° F! The remaining dry cake-like material is then cold-ground and fine-milled so that only the finest, most bio-available raw cacao particles become the finished product. This allows for maximum digestion and antioxidant absorption.
