Cacao Powder, Raw, Organic
Cacao powder is cocoa powder; however, this powder is made by cold-pressing raw cacao beans. The temperature must not exceed 120° Fahrenheit to qualify as raw. Regular cocoa powders can be exposed to temperature as high as 300°. Additionally, this minimal processing allows for maximum flavor, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.Historically, “cacao” and “cocoa” were used interchangeably. Technically, “cocoa” should be used in reference to powder products, while “cacao” should be used when referring to the bean.
This cacao powder is USDA certified organic by Skal International and guaranteed to be free of heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides.
