Raw organic cacao powder without any added sugars, originating from South America - 100% raw cacao powder from Peru.
After harvesting, the cacao beans are briefly fermented and dried in the sun. Then they are then crushed, pressing the cocoa butter off the bean and finally ground-up - done. The cocoa powder has not been alkalized, meaning it has not been treated with lye, as is the case with ordinary cocoa. As a result, it retains its natural light color.
The powder is not alkalized (not processed with an acidity regulator) but highly de-oiled**, so we recommend that you stir some powder into a small amount of warm liquid (i.e. water, milk, milk substitute etc.) and then add it to the total amount of liquid. As you may notice if you have ever visited our shop, we also prepare our hot chocolate this way.
