Sevenhills Organics Cacao is grown in Peru. Its seed pods are harvested by hand. They are broken apart and left until the soft flesh surrounding the bean has fermented and run off as liquid.
The fermentation process affects the taste of the beans, which lose some bitter flavours. The beans are washed, cleaned and dried. They are then peeled and broken into small pieces (nibs). The nibs are pressed to extract the fat content, which is known as Cacao butter.
The resulting Cacao cake is milled to a fine powder. Our Cacao powder is then exposed to temperatures over 42 degrees centigrade during processing and we don’t market it as raw. Cacao is known to have more than 300 health promoting compounds, including phenylethylamine, theobromine, and many polyphenols, like flavonoids.
Our Cacao powder is packaged in the UK.
