Cacao Paste Wafers Organic
The fortifying drink from South America
Cacao (Theobroma) was first harvested by the Olmecs in Mexico around 1000 B.C. At that time, it was mainly used for fortifying drinks. Over the years, the Mayas and the Aztecs adopted this use in their cultures. Cocoa became part of ceremonial rituals and cocoa beans were a means of payment. In the 16th century, the Spanish brought cocoa to Europe.
In the middle of the 17th century, it became a popular drink. Through colonies of various European countries, cocoa trees were introduced in Asia and West Africa, because there was an increasing demand for chocolate in Europe.
The cacao bean is the raw material for the production of chocolate. These cocoa beans originate from the tropical climates of South America (Ecuador). The Theobroma cacao tree is sacred to the Mayas and Aztecs. The cacao beans from the tree are harvested by hand and the raw beans are then cleaned in natural water and selected for the best quality. This process ensures that the nutritional values are retained, without any additives.
The production of cocoa paste
- Cocoa trees produce pods, which contain around 20 to 40 beans. These beans are taken from the pods and fermented in the sun. Then they are sorted and dried further, so that the water is extracted and it gets its delicious aroma.
- Then the beans are roasted.
- Next, the beans are separated from their husks and in 10 hours time they are ground in a grinder to a fine paste, called cocoa liquor.
- The next step is sterilisation: The paste is sterilised at 125 degrees for 90 minutes.
- Finally, this sterilised paste is poured into wafer shapes and cooled.
