Organic Traditions Cacao Powder Details
Cacao was once so revered by the Mayans and the Aztecs that it was used as currency. Flavored with chilies, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices, the beans were traditionally ground into a paste to make delicious chocolate dishes and ceremonial drinks. A true superfood, Organic Traditions Cacao Powder is a good source of Magnesium, Iron and Zinc and a very high source of Fiber. Cacao also contains essential minerals and a host of antioxidants giving it an ORAC value of 11,000 per 1 heaping tablespoon 20 gram serving. While most Cacao nibs are roasted, Organic Traditions Cacao nibs are raw with no added flavors or additives. The nibs are then pressed into a paste and the Cacaos fat content is removed, yielding delicious Cacao powder. While many other cacao powders have added sugar, Organic Traditions is pure, rich cacao powder in its natural state with no added flavorings or sweeteners.
Organic Traditions Cacao Powder is a top source of antioxidants, and it contains an abundance of magnesium and iron. To make Organic Traditions Cacao Powder, the finest cacao beans are milled at low temperature to protect the nutrients and flavor. The raw powder is a healthy alternative to conventional over-processed “cocoa” used for baking, hot chocolate, desserts and smoothies.
