Non-fermented cacao powder is raw and created by cold-pressing raw, organic cacao beans into a pressed cake separating the oil (cacao butter) from the protein and fiber. The temperature is never allowed to exceed 120° F and is usually 104° F (all other cocoa powders are exposed to temperatures as high as 300° F!). A high-accuracy thermometer monitors the process. The remaining dry 'cake-like' material is then cold-ground and fine-milled so that only the finest raw cacao particles become the finished product.
WFN non-fermented cacao powder is USDA certified organic and raw. This powder comes from a small family farm where they grow their crops on their own land, using the same sustainable methods that have been used for generations. It is imported from the Dominican Republic and packed by Wildly Organic by Wilderness Family Naturals in the USA.
This raw cacao powder has antioxidant activity as exhibited by an ORAC score of 1549 ?mol TE/g, higher than any other raw cacao powder.
