Cacao Paste Criollo – Chocolate Magic
Cacao paste (also called cacao liquor) is made by crushing raw cacao beans into a liquid, which solidifies at room temperature. Our cacao paste has raw-food quality and is from one of the best cacao varieties in the world, which is grown in Peru under semi-wild conditions.
The gentle processing at low temperatures preserves all the goodness of the cacao bean and allows the body to make optimum use of the many nutrients. Raw cacao contains an abundance of antioxidants, and the combination of stimulating substances (serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenethylamine) has mood lifting effects and promotes in us feelings of well-being and joy. Cacao is also rich in magnesium and sulfur, the beauty mineral
Cacao paste tastes less bitter than cacao powder, since it still contains the entire share of the cacao butter (approx. 55%), as also cacao nibs do.

SamaraNatura Cacao Paste
Our cacao paste has raw-food quality is made from Criollo cacao from Peru, which is one of the best and rarest varieties in the world. Our fine cacao is cultivated without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
Fine cacao of premium quality has a share of only 5-10% of the world's cacao production. Fine cacao grows under similar and often nearly same conditions as in nature, since cacao trees do not like full sun and thrive best close to high rainforest trees. On the contrary the commercial Forastero cacao is typically cultivated in monoculture plantations.
As the name indicates, fine cacao has a better, more exquisite flavour which is less bitter than the taste of commercial cacao. Criollo beans are slightly fermented which enhances their typical cacao aroma.
Cacao paste is an extremely smooth product and great to use in any chocolate recipe. The paste can be mixed into smoothies or added to ice cream, fruit salad, cereals and desserts.
