Cacao powder 100g
Cacao powder is obtained by drying, pressing and defatting cocoa beans. During pressing, cocoa beans are processed in such a way as to preserve key vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and, above all, enzymes, which are destroyed at temperatures above 40 ° C. At the same time, the cocoa powder treated in this way retains the taste properties and aroma of cocoa beans. Both cocoa powder and cocoa beans have more antioxidants and flavonoids than, for example, blueberries, red wine, black or green tea. Cocoa powder is rich in minerals including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese. The product comes from the Mexican state of Tabasco, the type of cocoa is Criollo. Unlike similar products, cocoa is pressed on the original stone presses and contains a maximum of 12% cocoa butter.
