Real or natural cacao is obtained from cacao beans, considered as “black gold” by the Incas, Mayans, and Aztecs in Central and South America. Their value was so high that they were used as currency alongside gold. Legends say that the cacao tree was a holy tree among the Incas, while its beans were considered food for the gods. 

The cacao powder is made by gently grinding the cocoa beans, without overheating, radiation and any additives. Growers closely monitor its production from the field to the finished product. The careful process ensures that the cocoa powder remains rich in nutrients and has a characteristic full chocolate flavor. 

Cocoa powder has no added sugar and therefore has a bitter but full taste. Each cocoa bean contains numerous compounds, making cocoa a complex foodstuff. In terms of nutrition, fat, which makes up at least 50 % of the cocoa bean, is the most important. As far as carbohydrates are concerned, the cocoa beans contain fiber and starch and practically no simple sugars. 

The best raw cacao is made from the criollo variety, which represents less than 1% of the global cacao production and thus has a very high value on the chocolate market. Its aroma is rich and complex, full of pleasant flavors that last longer on the palate than with other varieties. As they are difficult to grow and have a small yield, they require a lot more expertise and careful cultivation.  

Using organic criollo cacao powder

Cacao powder is very simple to use, as it can be added by the tablespoon to various dishes, such as smoothies, puddings, cakes, chocolates, spreads, cookies and ice cream. It has a good aroma and is an alternative to regular cocoa powders that contain added sugar. Cacao powder does not dissolve very well, so it needs to be stirred a little longer when making a drink. It is easier to dissolve it in water than in milk. 

When baking with natural cocoa, we recommend adding baking soda to offset the bitterness of the cocoa.
