Description

‘Food of the Gods’, is the literal translation of the name given to everyone’s favorite food! Cacao beans are the source for all Chocolate and Cocoa products. A treasure of vitamins, minerals, beta-carotene, zinc, chromium and magnesium, raw chocolate is a delight for the senses and food for the mind.

This cacao is grown on the small island of the Dominican Republic under a dense forest canopy basking in the shade of tropical fruit trees and 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.

Why Cacao Powder? 

Chocolate beans are the source of all chocolate, cocoa and cocoa butter. Cacao or Theobroma Cacao (Theobroma literally means “Food of the Gods”) – beans were so highly cherished by the Aztecs and Mayans that they were often used as currency and in religious ceremonies. Cacao powder is created by cold-pressing raw, organic cacao beans into a pressed cake separating the oil from the protein and fiber. 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!). A high-accuracy thermometer monitors the process. 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.
