The theobroma cacao tree, which originates from the tropical climate of South America, is the sacred tree of the Mayans and Aztecs. Cacao beans produced by organic producers in Peru contain more antioxidants than red wine and three times more than green tea. Cocoa beans are a rich source of minerals.
The raw bean pods are picked by hand, the best quality ones are selected and fermented to reduce their initial bitterness. After the dried beans are cleaned in clean water, peeled and seeded, they are crushed. These are ground into cocoa paste. The fat of the paste is extracted from the solid part, the residue is dried and ground into fine cocoa powder. Cocoa powder contains less fat and more fiber than beans. The production process preserves a significant part of the bean's nutritional value without additives.
Cocoa powder can be used extremely widely and is the most important raw material for countless foods, drinks and sweets.
