What is cacao powder?
Derived from a cacao bean from a tropical fruit tree native to Central and South America, cacao powder is the base for any chocolate flavored recipe. Cacao is the raw, unprocessed version of cocoa. It’s rich and famous flavor profile dates back valued uses by the Aztecs and Mayans.
How is this powdered processed?
Our cacao powder is created by cold-pressing raw, organic cacao beans into a pressed cake, separating the oil from the protein and fiber. During this process the temperature never exceeds 120° F. The remaining dry cake-like material is then cold-ground and fine-milled into a powder. The separated oil is what is known as cacao butter.
What does 22/24% Fat Content Mean?
The fat percentage refers to the amount of cacao butter remaining in the powder. Our cacao powder has a high fat content, therefore a lower starch content, allowing baked goods to retain their moisture and cakey texture.
Why use cacao powder?
Cacao is incredibly rich in magnesium and also contains more antioxidant flavonoids than blueberries, red wine, and green tea. These natural chemicals, along with the present neurotransmitters, enhance physical and mental well-being. Our raw cacao powder also contains theobromine which has similar effects to caffeine.
