Our cacao butter originates from hand picked Ecuadorian Arriba criollo cacao pods. The beans are hand selected, fermented in specialized huts for approx. 3-4 days, sun-dried to perfection, crushed and winnowed (the skins removed). These nibs are ground in a granite melange and naturally liquefy. The liquefied cacao mass is transferred to a mechanical press where the cacao butter is removed, cooled to a solid and packaged for your enjoyment. Our cacao butter is not deodorized nor are any chemicals used in the process. We regularly lab test our products to ensure they meet specifications and the standards our customers have come to expect.

Contrary to popular opinion, cacao contains very little caffeine. It has been clinically demonstrated that cacao does not elevate blood sugar in the same way as a food or beverage containing caffeine would. Instead, GY CACAO helps to create an overall state of bliss :). And to take it next level, our cacao is low temperature processed from start to finish!
