Alce Nero fairtrade cocoa powder is made using cocoa beans from plantations which are cultivated in accordance with organic regulations.

Free from added sugar and bursting of genuine cocoa flavour and aroma, this cocoa powder is ideal for the preparation of your desserts and smoothies. 

Also known as the food of Gods, cocoa was first used by the Mayas to prepare a bitter and highly spiced beverage drunk in sacred rituals. 

The  Toltecs and the Aztecs who followed the Mayan civilisation adopted the tradition and named the beverage “xocoatl” (which means bitter water). 

The health and nutrition benefits of cocoa which we all know nowadays were immediately clear to the Aztecs, who considered this drink a source of wisdom and energy as well as an aphrodisiac and soothing balsam. 

The first European to come into contact with cocoa was Christopher Columbus who found it to be too bitter and spicy. 

It was only several years later that cocoa was introduced in Europe by the Spanish conquistador Hernando Cortés who brought this precious raw material and the recipe of the  holy drink to Spain.

The Spanish added sugar and other ingredients to the recipe and named the drink chocolate: a privilege reserved for the wealthy until the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.
