Kocoatrait Unsweetened Keto Baking Chocolate 200Gms₹460.00 Including GST Add to cart
The Kocoatrait 100% Dark Unsweetened Keto Baking Chocolate, also referred to as Cocoa Mass/paste in the industry, is simply pure ground cacao to a smooth texture and then formed into chocolate bars – unsweetened chocolate 100% cocoa solids. We source our cocoa from organic farmers. This is the flavor of 100 dark chocolate: strong robust and bitter with the subtle nuances of exotic organic cacao. We carefully grade our cocoa, roast them to bring out the best flavours and then remove the shell. We use stone grinders to smoothen the chocolate and temper it before we mould it to be packed.
The real taste of pure raw cacao is very apparent when eating 100% cocoa solids because there is nothing else added to the chocolate (no sugar, no vanilla, no milk, no extra cocoa butter).
Further, we have preserved the natural flavours & intense character of cocoa by not alkalising the product. This is most suitable for baking so that the baker can determine the sugar he/she wants to use and add. This chocolate is also suitable for Paleo & Keto diets. Many American Baking recipes refer to this unsweetened product as baking chocolate. Please refer to the recipe to check the exact % of cocoa specified.
Over the last 3-4 years, high fat Keto and Paleo diets have become popular and bakers in india usually get their supplies from overseas. We are now able to supply across India.

Ceremonial cacao now in India!
You can now buy ceremonial cacao in India! Yes! Used for cacao ceremonies, Ceremonial Cacao is cacao in its purest paste form and does not taste like chocolate! It has no sweetener. The only ingredient present in ceremonial cacao is roasted and ground whole shelled organic cacao beans. Nothing more, nothing less. Nothing is ever added, chemically altered or taken away. Unlike hot chocolate which is made from cacao powder (where the cocoa butter is pressed out), we leave in the cacao butter, the carrier of all of cacao’s benefits. The drink is made with hot water, minimal sweetener (if so desired) – by contrast to a typical hot chocolate made with cocoa powder, sugar and milk!
The traditional ceremonial grade cacao is produced from Native Cacao Strains which grow naturally. They grow in the wild and without human interaction/cultivation in South American countries like Guatemala & Peru. These strains are both the rarest and contain the compounds in most concentration, necessary for ceremonial use. Ceremonial cacao is said to “open clear channels between the body, the heart, and a divine spirit”. When consumed in “ceremonial” quantities (30-60 Grams), the mixture produces a wide range of reactions from feeling of openness and ecstasy to hallucinations in rare cases, according to regular practitioners.
For the uninitiated, ceremonial cacao does not taste like hot chocolate! It tastes purer and you feel more connected to the cacao.
What is cacao paste and what is ceremonial cacao paste?
Technically speaking, cacao paste and ceremonial cacao are made of the same ingredients. It’s the thoughtfulness and tradition in processing (low temperature roasting, hand cracking & stone grinding) and the intention in drinking ceremonial cacao that differentiates it from cacao paste. In a regular 100% cocoa paste, butter and vanilla is usually added. However, nothing is taken out or added during this process to ceremonial cacao, which leaves the ceremonial cacao pure.
Disclaimer about Ceremonial Cacao in India
To be absolutely clear, honest, upfront & transparent, “We do not use the original Native Cacao Strains grown in Guatemala & Peru to make the ceremonial grade cacao. Also, we do not hand peel the husks. This is mainly to avoid any human contact during this time of pandemic.” Kocoatrait ceremonial cacao proudly uses Organic Indian cacao with an aim to be local and Make in India and Made for India. However, we do encourage you to consume this as usual during a cacao ceremony!
However, while we carefully follow the low roasting and stone grinding process as prescribed (to the T), we cannot get hold of the Native Cacao Strains in India! Simply because it does not grow in india and is limited to Guatemala & Peru. It is made available in blocks which you can cut or shave. You can now buy ceremonial cacao in India from Kocoatrait. Simply add to cart!
