Criollo Cacao is the most delicate, aromatic and rare variety of this famous plant (Theobroma cacao), traditionally revered for its nutrition by the people of Central and South America. Vigor Mundi brings you the highest quality cacao, organically grown in Peru, with an exceptionally high nutrient profile and a complex lingering flavour. Our beans are meticulously selected, only briefly fermented (to retain the raw health benefits), slowly sun-dried and roasted (below 40° C), which is unique in comparison with most cacao on the market. NO ‘AROMA EXTRACTION’ OR OTHER CHEMICAL PROCESSING, NO BULKING AGENTS OR ADDITIVES. Cacao butter is separated by pressure and our gourmet butter buttons retain their natural fragrance; the aroma is indisputably second to none.
DIRECTIONS: A few buttons with your tea, chai or hot chocolate drinks will add a wonderful creamy flavour. Fry your gourmet foods in a pan with some buttons, simply use as a portable snack or add to your favourite smoothie mix, cereal or confectionery recipes. Cacao butter is often used to moisturise the skin for a healthy shine.
NOTE: Please consult a medical practitioner in case of pre-existing medical conditions or pregnancy.
