Natural Cocoa Powder (10-12) - 100% Venezuelan Fine Cocoa

  • $12.25 CAD


Taxonomic Classification: Theobroma cacao.

Origin: Venezuela.

 

Our Derivative Products of Cacao are the result of grinding the premium blend of roasted Trinitario cacao beans with a high content of Criollo beans. These beans grow and are harvested in the beautiful lands of Venezuela, in the north of South America and facing the Caribbean Sea. Delicacies Valley is the direct importer and sole distribution source in Canada for these rare cacaos from Venezuela.

 

Properties and Qualities: It is no accident that the main product of cacao, the chocolate, has been called the drink of the gods and was reserved for the elites of society, religious hierarchs, kings, and emperors. In addition to the aroma, tannins, and flavors, the cocoa is rich in natural antioxidants. In cocoa beans, we also find alkaloids such as theobromine and caffeine, which are dilating vessels, cardiovascular stimulants, the central nervous system, and appetite. Cocoa also has natural serotonin that works in the brain as a neurotransmitter and infallible ingredient against depression and phenyl-ethyl-amine, known as the molecule of love.

Common use: The Cocoa Powder is the result of the pulverization of the cocoa liquor and the extraction of the butter. The cocoa powder finds its utility in the food industry, in the preparation of cookies, ice creams, drinks, and pastries as well as in the elaboration of coverage for confectionery and frozen desserts.
