Organic Fairtrade Mascao 85% Cocoa Chocolate 80g
It is from organic farming, that is, cultivated without using fertilizers or pesticides of chemical origin.
The delicious Fair Trade Mascao chocolates are obtained from the mixture of cocoa paste, sugar and cocoa butter and other ingredients such as almonds, hazelnuts, etc. Cocoa, produced in El Ceibo, Bolivia, does not contain flavorings or thickeners.
The cocoa plant is a tree that can reach 10 meters. Its fruits are elongated and can weigh up to 1 Kg. Once the outer rind is opened, a white pulp is found that contains about 30 violet seeds. Once the dry seeds are heated, roasted and crumbled, an amalgam is obtained (cocoa paste) from which the fatty substance (cocoa butter) is then extracted, and the rest is made into cocoa powder.
The sugar used is of the Mascobado variety from Pitafa (Philippines) and/or Otisa (Paraguay).
