According to the Aztecs, Quetzalcóatl, God of vegetation and its renewal taught men how to cultivate the cocoa tree.
Native to the Amazon, Criollo cocoa, an ecotype recognized for its taste, aromatic and nutritional qualities, today represents around 1% of world production. This scarcity is due to the fact that this original cocoa is less profitable than those obtained by hybridization to supply the chocolate industry.
Our fava beans come from these original varieties. Our partner has developed a transformation process inspired by ancestral artisanal techniques that does not exceed 45°C, thus preserving the famous nutrients of cocoa.
Our cocoa chips are a source of Copper which contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous and immune systems and to the protection of cells against oxidative stress.
Copper contributes to the normal pigmentation of hair and skin.
Cocoa chips (crushed fava beans with the skin removed) can be used in various sweet or savory preparations.
Use: as a topping on fruits, desserts, granola, rice, potatoes, etc...
