Choose quality stuff — dark chocolate with 70% or higher cocoa content. It’s Cacao powder, not cocoa powder!
Cacao powder and cocoa powder are very similar, the only difference being that cocoa is processed at a much higher temperature (and often packaged cocoa contains added sugar and dairy).
Let me tell you their story before they are packaged to reach our store shelves.
Cacao and cocoa are both born in the same family of cacao plant; both are beans no gender disparity. After the grow and mature they are separated from the fatty part – cocoa butter (I wish humans could get that done!)
Now comes the part where they get ready to enter the real world. So these siblings are separated, some of them are fermented to develop flavour and texture. While the other lot is fermented and roasted instantly on high temperature and resultantly lose some of the nutritional value.
However, the ones which were allowed to develop flavour and texture are spared from high processing, it is just milled into a powder that’s higher in nutrition and richer, bitter in taste.Like how you appoint more experienced, highly matured and organically work upon individuals to delegate your work and grow your business.
That is the way you should approach your grocery shopping list buy value additions and not additives.
