Raw cacao, which has been minimally processed and dried at low temperatures, is known for its healthful benefits. The raw powder has a rich flavor that is more subtle than its roasted counterpart, and can be added to smoothies, homemade energy bars, herbal beverages, and extracts.
Our raw cacao powder starts as raw whole beans carefully collected from the cacao fruit. The beans are washed and then dried using a forced air dehydrator. The dried, whole beans are then husked and processed into smaller pieces. These pieces are then cold pressed, resulting in the separation of raw cacao butter and a raw cacao cake. This cake is then further milled into this fine powder.
