CEREMONIAL COCOA IN A POWDER FORM
Our Polish company Segura is a manufacturer of cocoa powder obtained by cryogenically grinding cocoa nibs or cocoa beans at a very low temperature (-80°C). This product, known as ceremonial cocoa, is rapidly gaining popularity in the market. Over the past year, we have maintained an increase in sales of the organic cocoa powder by more than 500% on an annual basis. This is perhaps, because our company is probably the only one in the world offering ground whole cocoa beans or cocoa nibs as a high-fat light brown powder.
Our ceremonial cocoa in powder form (we prefer to use the term "cocoa" instead of "cacao"), retain the valuable macro- and micronutrients, as well as the original flavor and aroma. In our production we apply only organic-certified nibs or beans that grown in Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
In further processing of cocoa powders we obtain also raw ceremonial cocoa in the solid forms of chocolate blocks or slices.
We pack our products into retail high-barrier zip-bags. However, we can also offer cocoa powders in bulk or under "private label". Blocks and slices are available with standard or custom-moulded art and logos.
The non-alkalized ceremonial cocoa contains a natural amount of cocoa butter: 52% in the nibs and 46% in the beans, while dark skimmed cacao contains only 10-20%. To better understand the differences between the various cocoa products, we have provided an infographic below:
