Cocoa is a small perennial plant called Theobroma Cacao, which grows in tropical climates, specially in South America. Its fruit was much appreciated by the Mayans and Aztecs, and was taken into Europe by the Spanish. These pre-columbian peoples used the cocoa to produce a drink which was a great source of energy.

 

Our raw cocoa beans are from the Criollo variety, which was called “King of the Cocoa”, due to its bean’s high quality. Our cocoa comes from the regions of organic growth in Peru and its fruit is caught by hand. Then, the cocoa is selected and fermented in order to soften it sour taste. Later, the cocoa beans are washed in mineral water, pealed and cut to obtain the cocoa paste. The fat of this paste is extracted from the solid part and then the solid part is dried and it transforms into cocoa powder.  Cocoa powder contains less fat and more fibre than the beans. The production process preserves a significative portion of the nutritional value of the bean and it’s free from any additive.

 

OX NATURE RAW CRIOLLO CACAO POWDER: Our cacao is produced from selected beans from the criollo variety, which represents less than 10% of the world cacao production, and it is recognised by its high-quality taste. This cacao is processed at low temperatures (<40º) and cold pressed, resulting in a pure, non-alkalized and nutrient-rich cacao powder.

The cocoa beans are known as the basis of the production of chocolate, but they have a high nutritious density of over 300 active substancies. Rich in antioxidants, amino acids (Tryptophan – natural source of serotonin, also known as “the happiness hormone”), flavonoids and minerals, are an excellent superfood due to a great quantity of nutrients and benefits for our health.

OX NATURE RAW CRIOLLO CACAO POWDER: Due to the methods used, our cacao contains a great variety of minerals, namely calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, copper and manganese.
