This product differs from our Full-Spectrum Cacao Powder, which has not been separated from its natural fat content (40% – 50% natural cacao butter). But the fat content inside cacao contains oleic acid, a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, also found in olive oil, that may raise good cholesterol.
Why ChocoVivo Cacao?
Our beans are specially fermented for less than 3 days. This creates less acidity. Research has shown that less days of fermentation means more flavanols are maintained in the chocolate. Our cocoa powder is 22% fat, which maintains the flavor and nutritional content of high-percentage cacao, with the ease-of-use and versatility of a instant mix store bought "cocoa" powder.
Our beans are organically grown and more than fair-trade. We are continually working with our grower to protect the region and educate people in their area.
