Raw cacao is often recommended as a health food and is differentiated from ‘normal’ cacao by its production process. Widely available conventional cacao powder is made by extracting the cacao with heat or chemical processing. During the production process, some beneficial compounds in the cacao are lost. Raw cacao is produced without heating or chemically processing the cacao, which keeps most beneficial compounds intact.
Cacao powder is made by separating the fats in cacao beans (the cacao butter) from the cacao solids. To produce raw cacao powder, the cacao beans are pressed to extract the cacao fats. The remaining cacao solids are dried and processed into powder.
