Difference between Cacao and Cocoa
“Cacao” refers to any of the various food products derived from cacao beans, which are the seeds of the cacao tree. These products include cacao nibs, cacao butter, cacao mass, and – probably the most common – cacao powder. Raw cacao powder is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the cacao butter, which is the fat.
“Cocoa” often refers to the dry powder made by roasting Cacao powder at high temperatures. In order to distinguish unroasted cacao from roasted cocoa, the term “cacao” was adopted.
