Cacao Powder, RAW (Ceres, organic) - 500g
Ceres Organics RAW Cacao Powder is derived from certified organic cacao beans that are cold-pressed in small batches with temperatures below 47°C. The cacao solids are then cold milled into fine powder. No chemicals are used in the process.
This is 'chocolate’ in its purest, most natural form, without sugar and other additives. Rich in antioxidants and fibre, raw cacao powder imparts a rich flavour with a hint of bitterness and subtle ‘chocolaty’ taste. Use it in desserts, drinks and anything you want to add cacao goodness to.
