Raw Cacao Derivatives
.
Our cacao is not processed for the gastronomic industry, where the priority is to maximize aromas and flavors with aggressive toasting processes, and not necessarily preserve the bean’s original high antioxidant content.  

Villa Andina’s cacao products are aimed at consumers who are looking for the cacao’s original nutritional benefits. Our cacao products are “raw”, having been processed at temperatures below 45ºC (110ºF) so as to preserve to the maximum the beans’ natural health properties.
