Our cacao paste originates from hand picked Ecuadorian Arriba criollo
cacao pods. The beans are hand selected, fermented in specialized huts
for approx. 3-4 days, sun-dried to perfection, crushed and winnowed (the
skins removed). These nibs are ground in a granite melange and
naturally liquefy (cacao beans are naturally high in fat containing
approx. 45-60%). The liquefied cacao mass is poured onto trays and
solidified, next broken into pieces and packaged for your enjoyment. Our
cacao does not go through a "Dutch" process nor alkalized in any way.
Our supplier sources fully mature ripe pods from trees grown in
mineral rich volcanic soil. These trees are not irrigated from
potentially contaminated rivers and streams. Our supplier works directly
with the farmers (aka direct trade) and it is our goal to ensure that
everyone along the supply chain is well taken care of. Happy workers =
happy food= happy people. It is also our goal to provide great tasting,
pure & the highest quality CACAO possible. We regularly lab test our
products to ensure they meet specifications and the high standards our
customers have come to expect.
GY CACAO has a deep, powerful, raw chocolate flavour. Contrary to
popular opinion, cacao contains very little caffeine. It has been
clinically demonstrated that cacao does not elevate blood sugar in the
same way as a food or beverage containing caffeine would. Instead, GY
CACAO helps to create an overall state of bliss :). And to take it next
level, our cacao is low temperature processed from start to finish!
