Question: What is the difference between Cacao Powder and Cocoa Powder?
Answer: Cacao Powder and Cocoa powder are not the same thing, but you can substitute cacao for cocoa. Some differences between Cacao Powder and Cocoa Powder are that Cacao Powder is raw and does not contain the additives that are often in cocoa such as sugars, milk fat, hydrogenated oils and artificial flavorings. Cacao Powder is high in antioxidants and contains essential vitamins and minerals, while Cocoa Powder is stripped of the nutrients because it is processed. Cacao Powder is a healthy alternative to using cocoa powder.
Question: Is your Cacao Powder fermented?
Answer: Yes, our cacao beans go through a process of natural fermentation after they are picked. This process takes place before the beans are extracted from their shells and cold pressed. It is a natural process that gives the beans their chocolaty taste and lowers their phytic acid levels.
Question: Can Cacao Powder be eaten raw or cooked?
Answer: Yes, the powder can be used raw and in fact, you get more benefits not heating/cooking raw cacao as it is full of enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients that are carefully preserved in the low temperature processing.
