Organic Cacao Powder
Cacao is one of the world’s most popular flavourings. It’s the source of chocolate! Pure Cacao, although full of flavour, is also bitter, so it’s usually mixed with cream and sugar to balance out the flavour. Regency Cacao comes from Peru, where we find a lovely caramel fruity chocolate flavour, grown and processed to perfection in the wild Amazon rainforests. Cacao Powder is the result of a long, labourous and mechanical process previously not possible, as it needs to be milled at a cooler temperature below 50 degrees C to better preserve all the flavours and nutrients. Traditional cocoa grinding generates a lot of heat, and thus resulting in a different flavour and nutrient profile. Regency Cacao Powder is also USDA and EU Organic Certified.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
