Cacao Powder Peruvian - Raw and Organic (25kg BULK)

Be the first to review this product

Cacao Powder Peruvian - Raw and Organic (25kg BULK) is available for purchase in increments of 1

*Please note that this stock of Cacao powder is not raw. Our truly raw Cacao powder supplier - the only one who has ever provided evidence that their Cacao is produced at 'raw' temperatures, has had problems with their presses. These presses are specially made for them. They have sourced larger presses that are due for delivery in April. Unfortunately the raw cacao will not be available again until then.*


This 'natural' Cacao powder is still unroasted, it is less bitter than the raw powder and has a more chocolatey taste.


It has been exposed to a temperature of 90 degrees F for 20 minutes as a 'kill' step necessary in production.


Below is the description of the raw Cacao.


Our cacao powder comes from Peru and is guaranteed truly raw. Virtually all cacao powders on the market which claim to be raw are made from the raw bean, but in the process of pressing them into powder, they become heated, and that's where the difference in flavour comes in. Ours is more bitter than you may be used to, and the chocolate flavour is not so intense. If you care about your foods being actually raw, as we do, then you will appreciate the difference in our product. To learn more about the Peruvian farming co-operative that we source these products from, listen to the audio interview below. Full of fascinating insights into how to produce truly raw products, and the unique manufacturing processes that are needed to ensure that these raw organic foods are premium quality, and produced with high regard for the environment and the farmers.

Ours is more bitter than you may be used to, and the chocolate flavour is not so intense.

But please be warned this does not taste the same as the kind of cacao powder that you may be used to. 

Cacao powder is prized for its high antioxidant content, especially for its high content of polyphenols. 

The cacao powder is the easiest way to use raw chocolate: just add a spoonful to sweets, desserts, or smoothies.

The beans are first selected, then washed and disinfected. They are air-dried, then ground and pulverized. It's during the next stage, the pressing, that most manafacturers dont ensure that temperatures stay below 46 deg C. Our powder takes 2-3 times longer to press in order to make sure it stays raw. Then it is tested for heavy metals before packing. 

Cacao is the seed of a fruit of an Amazonian tree that was brought to Central America during or before the time of the Olmecs. Cacao beans were so revered by the Mayans and Aztecs that they used them as money; for example, one fish was worth three cacao beans, or one avocado was worth one cacao bean! The Mayans used cacao during betrothal and marriage ceremonies, providing one of the first known links between chocolate and romance. 

In 1753 Carl von Linnaeus, the 18th-century Swedish scientist, thought that cacao was so important that he named the genus and species of this tree himself. He named this tree, Theobroma Cacao, which literally means "cacao, the food of the gods". It was the Spanish who introduced the crop to Asia and Africa to satisfy growing demand in Europe.

“It has a much more delicate flavour which I like. It is evidently more natural; it's obvious to me that heating brings out the chocolate flavour as it does when dry frying spices. It's like a completely different product that can be appreciated in its own right but not that intense hit of flavour. I think it has a really subtle smooth delicious taste, it's a lot lighter, much more sophisticated on the palate. “ Anna Middleton, raw chef and naturopath.

“Loved the cacao - like you said it is different but still delicious. “ Lauren Lovatt, raw chef and Plantlab teacher.
