Unsweetened Raw Organic Cocoa

Raw organic cocoa powder is handled in a special way from rainforest to you. It is made using raw cocoa nibs that are carefully selected for quality using a grading system that organizes the cocoa beans to size, color and texture. Once the highest quality cocoa beans are selected they are cleaned, washed and dried. The cocoa beans are then dehydrated at a low temperature to slowly remove moisture. Once a low moisture content is reached, these cocoa beans are winnowed also called as de-shelling. This process is to remove the outer cocoa bean skin. This cocoa bean skin is not nutritious and has no quality flavor. Most raw cocoas do not go through this extra step that ensures food safety and quality, but Santa Barbara Chocolate takes this extra step in quality control. Once winnowed, the cocoa beans are ground through a pulverization process and then pressed to remove a portion of the cocoa butter. Removing the cocoa butter concentrates the raw cocoa powder so it retains the cacao fiber with cacao phytonutrients.
