Great Taste Awards Winner 2017: 1 Star Award.

Great Taste Judges' Comments:

"A most unusual and interesting flavour. It has no sugar and is really bitter, but does have a little natural sweetness to balance. Intense chocolate and bitterness, complex and interesting with a fascinating provenance."

"This product judged on its own with no indulgent additions, sugar, cream, etc., shows off the quality of the raw cacao, this alone deserves 1*. Good stuff."

Organic Raw Cacao Powder

Cacao, or Cocoa, is an evergreen tree, which grows naturally in tropical climates around the world. Sevenhills Wholefoods source our beans from Peru, and only those of a premium variety. Cacao has for centuries been predominant to diets in its native areas, yet in recent times, has attracted attention for its nutritionally rich profile, and health benefits associated with its antioxidant content.

During processing our Raw Cacao Powder never exceeds the temperature of 45 degrees celsius which safeguards heat-sensitive nutrients. 

Processing

Sevenhills Wholefoods Organic Cacao beans are harvested and fermented for 5-6 days. they are then dried at 40 degrees Celsius before being cleaned, dehusked and ground.  The ground nibs are then sterilized and pressed to produce Cacao cake. This is then chopped and pulverised to produce a fine Cacao Powder.
