Cacao beans are the beginnings of all chocolate products and Mum’s Original™ cacao powder is our ‘finest’ member of our Criollo Arriba cacao product line. Cacao powder is simply the result of the cacao bean being put through a cold-pressing process with the fat (cacao butter) mostly removed. Rich in numerous nutrients, and anti-oxidants galore, our finely milled powder is a chocolate lover’s dream.
Mum's Original™ uses the specific heirloom variety Criollo Aribba for its cacao beans. As the original source of all cacao, Criollo Arriba has the richest flavor and greatest nutritional composition. Combined with our traditional style of processing, our well-fermented Criollo results in an incredible taste profile with lots of delicate high notes with a tangy berry note integrated into a delicate chocolate flavor.
