Power Super Foods Cacao Powder Gold Organic 225g
Heritage Ecuadorian Organic Powder
Here's a delicious mouthful to wrap your tongue around - "Cacao Nacional Arriba Fino de Aroma" - the name of this heritage Cacao Bean variety found only around Ecuador (a country justifiably famous for their chocolate products). Growing near the equator results in a unique photosynthesis, accounting for its impressive nutritional content, deeper colour/aroma/flavour AND a naturally richer cocoa butter content gives this luxury Cacao Powder a smoother texture on the tongue. Mmmmmmmm... we all deserve this decadence!
Suggested Uses: So many different & delicious ways to enjoy! For example, use like cocoa powder in desserts, cookie batter, muffins, drinks, chocolate creations, raw foodie treats, smoothies, or sprinkle over ice cream, yoghurt, cheesecake, coffee or hot chocolate... feel free to experiment and become your own gourmet master chef! (Note: 15g = 1 heaped TBSP approximately)
By now, everyone must have heard the many advantages of dark chocolate consumption, rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, protein and minerals like zinc, calcium, chromium, iron, potassium and magnesium.
Ingredients: Certified Organic Fair Trade 100% Ecuadorian Cacao Powder (Theobroma cacao, Nacionale arriba fino de aroma)
Yes! And gluten-free, vegan, & super delicious too!
2. Why the glitzy packaging??
To differentiate this high-end luxury Ecuadorian product from all the rest!
3. What about the nutritional content??
Similar - and with a comparable magnesium content, a naturally richer cocoa butter content, AND it actually also has a higher protein count! (remember that protein/aminos are one of the first nutrients denatured by heat)
4. Is it fairly traded?
Even better! Our Ecuadorian partners are true social revolutionaries, re-investing part profits into bettering their compatriots lives through multiple, local, ingenious initiatives
5. Will I like it as much as the other one I usually buy from you?
The feedback has been FANTASTIC - so aromatic, so smooth on the tongue, so freaking delicious -- we think Cacao GOLD makes the best chocolatey treats EVER!
6. Why was this Cacao bean variety almost rendered extinct??
Because like many indigenous or endemic plants, they're often ripped out and replanted for the sake of a few 'safe' or 'convenient' varieties, that like most 'factory farmed' hybrids, tend to have no real taste or smell, but give a high yield. It was only through careful collection of seed in patches of remnant forests, then a concerted seedling raising effort that it was resurrected sufficiently for commercial crops to resume from it - lucky you!
