cacao vs cocoa: what's the difference?
Have you wondered what the difference is between cacao and cocoa, and why it matter?
Cocoa powder is made by roasting cacao beans at a high temperature. While this sweetens the taste, it degrades the powerful nutrients and enzymes, and strips away a lot of potent health benefits.
Cacao powder, on the other hand, is made by cold pressing the cacao bean. This keeps the living enzymes and medicinal properties of the plant intact.
To receive chocolate’s full bounty, stick with high quality raw cacao.
