“LO SCURO” Dark Organic Modica Chocolate with 70% raw cane sugar
Mascobado Unrefined Sugar
Mascobado is a brown cane sugar produced in the Philippines from organically grown sugarcane by The Panay Fair Trade Center (PFTC) using purely traditional methods. PFTC is based on Panay island on the Philippines and was set up in 1991 by a women’s association as a “not for profit” organization. Mascobado is an unrefined sugar and it therefore contains all the original nutritive properties and is rich in minerals, especially in iron. The natural presence of molasses confers it the dark brown appearance. Mascobado has an intense flavor and a slight licorice aftertaste.
About Sabadì Chocolate
Sabadì is located in Sicily, a beautiful and exciting land, rich in light and contrast, where you can still savor the slow passing of time and afford the luxury of cultivating great passions.
To make their chocolate, Sabadì selected an extraordinary cocoa in Ecuador: the Nacional fino de aroma Arriba Superior Summer Selected, the best selection on the market. It is a very aromatic cacao, with distinct floral notes and hints of banana. Producers grow the cocoa in mixed crops, surrounded by trees which provide shade; therefore they require less water and less intensive use of fertilizers. Nacional is a Slow Food presidium and is provided by Fair Trade producers. They use only naturally produced cane sugar without the use of bleaching chemicals, with different degrees of refining. It comes from fair trade producers in Costa Rica and the Philippines where environmental protection and tropical forest conservation are of great importance.
About Modica chocolate
Sabadì chocolate is traditionally made according to the age-old Modica cold working process. Throughout the process the temperature never exceeds 45 degrees Celsius. In this way, all the cocoa’s unique and aromatic notes and the ingredients’ beneficial properties are fully preserved. The texture is unique, pleasantly crunchy.
