Nutra Organics Raw Cacao Powder is a pure product. No chemical refining or bleaching here, and nothing artificial added, just pure wholefood goodness.
Cacao (pronounced ka-cow) is the fruit of an indigenous American jungle tree (theobroma cacao) and is known for its high antioxidant and magnesium qualities. Cacao is an ancient superfood, once traded by the Mayans and Aztecs as currency. All chocolate originally comes from Cacao - its the processing in time and heat that separates our Cacao from standard Cocoa.
The Cacao fruit are harvested and fermented for flavour. The beans are then dried, roasted (at low temperature to preservation nutritional value), ground into a fine paste and pressed to remove the cacao butter. The cacao cake remains and is finely milled and ready to use as Cacao powder!
Cacao has a wide variety of uses! Add to your baking or raw treats - bliss balls, brownies, smoothies, yoghurt or ice cream. Try making your own chocolate, hot chocolate or anything that needs a chocolate hit
