Originating from the tropical climates in South America, the Theobroma Cacao tree is sacred amongst the Mayans and Aztecs. Produced by organic growers in Peru, Cacao beans contain more antioxidants than red wine and 3 times more than green tea, Cacao beans embody a rich source of minerals. Harvested by hand as pods, the raw beans are selected for the finest quality and fermented to reduce their initial bitterness. After cleaning the dried beans in natural water, they are peeled and their core extracted to be broken into “nibs”. These are ground into Cacao paste. The fat from the paste is extracted from the solid part and the residue dried and finely ground into Cacao powder. Cacao powder contains less fat and more fibre than the beans. The production process preserves a significant proportion of the nutritional value of the beans without any additives.
Raw Cacao beans drying → cleaning & sorting → roasting → winnowing →milling → refining → sterilizing → shaking → pressing → breaking → pulverizing and screening →packaging
