Pronounced “cu-COW”, Cacao is the unprocessed form of the cacao bean. Cacao is extracted from the pure, cold-pressed beans of the cacao fruit and only considered “raw” if it has been processed in conditions under 47 degrees. Research shows that 60-90% of the antioxidant content of cacao is lost when it is treated and processed – i.e, turned into cocoa.
