Nuzest uses cacao powder (organic, unroasted) known as Theobroma cacao or the cacao tree. The cacao is derived from the organic Peruvian Criolla bean. The cacao is processed at low temperatures and considered raw.
Once the cacao is grounded into powder, it contains more amount of enzymes, minerals, and nutrients than cocoa powder, but tastes a little more bitter than cocoa powder for the same reasons. Our cacao powder is sourced from Peru.
