Manufacturer Description

Cacao, or Cocoa, is an evergreen tree, which grows naturally in tropical climates around the world. Its fruit, the Cacao bean, is well-known as the basic ingredient in chocolate. It has for centuries been central to diets in its native areas. In recent times it has attracted attention because of its nutritional richness and the health benefits associated with its antioxidant content. Sevenhills Organics Cacao is grown in Peru. Its seed pods are harvested by hand. They are broken apart and left until the soft flesh surrounding the bean has fermented and run off as liquid. The fermentation process affects the taste of the beans, which lose some bitter flavours. The beans are washed, cleaned and dried. They are then peeled and broken into small pieces (nibs). The nibs are pressed to extract the fat content, which is known as Cacao butter. The resulting 'cake' is milled to a fine powder. As our Cacao powder may be exposed to temperature over 42 degrees centigrade during processing we don't market it as raw. Our Cacao powder is packaged in the UK.
