100% Certified Organic Cacao PasteThe fruit of the cacao tree contains a small bean from which all chocolate is made. Cacao, also called cocoa, is an incredible health food in its natural state, filled with nutrients that provide natural energy, support heart health and protect our bodies from free-radical damage. This amazing food has been revered for centuries by cultures such as the Aztec, Maya and others. The Sunfood DifferenceOur ray organic tempered cacao paste is made by slowly grinding cacao nibs into a fine paste. Temperature of this paste is carefully controlled to ensure uniform crystallization of the fats which creates noticeable change in snap, sheen, color, smell and taste. The result is a smooth, dark and rich chocolate flavor unique to tempered cacao paste. We use only the finest variety of cacao, Arriba Nacional Fino de Aroma, which isn't hybridized or genetically modified.
