Theobroma cacao – Cocoa Powder

This Cocoa powder is made from organic cocoa beans of the species Forastero Hispanola and is a delicious degreased cocoa powder. This cocoa powder contains only 10%-12% fat, about half of the normal amount and has no added sugar. Which makes it a healthy low-fat cocoa powder.

About Defatted Cocoa Powder

After harvesting the cacao, the fruits are opened and the fresh beans are removed. During fermentation, the flesh decreases. The fermented cacao beans are then dried, cleaned, first roasted, broken and cleaned again.

The crushed cacao beans are alkalineised, roasted, cooled and ground. The ground cacao beans are then pressed until the fat content is at the desired level creating this delicious cocoa powder.

The Benefits of Cocoa Powder

Cocoa powder contains several minerals including calcium, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc. All of these minerals are found in greater quantities in cocoa powder than either cocoa butter or cocoa liquor. Cocoa solids also contain 230 mg of caffeine and 2057 mg of theobromine per 100g, which are mostly absent from the other components of the cacao bean.

The Difference Between Cacao and Cocoa

Cacao is the seed, also known as cacao beans, from which chocolate is made and cocoa is the ingredient in chocolate. Cacao will be seen by the chocolate industry and botanists as the raw unprocessed material of which cocoa is made. So cocoa refers to any of the processed and manufactured products while cacao refers to the beans that have not been roasted, defatted or added sugars.
