90% Gran Nativo Peruvian Sun Salt Caramel Hearts
Inside a delicately flavoured 90% Gran Nativo Blanco Chocolate is a Peruvian sun salt caramel (vegan friendly) produced using Inca sun salt, a delicacy hailing from the Peruvian Andes.
Gran Nativo Blanco translates into “Grand Native White and is a very special and elegant cacao with a high proportion of white beans. Hidden for more than a century, this gem from nature was rediscovered in 2008 on the small cacao fields by San Juan de Bigotes, in Piura, North of Peru.
This salt is still collected the same way as at the time of the Incas. A high-powered salt water spring continually floods thousands of shallow pools dotted around the legendary citadel of Machu Pichu. Once the Peruvian sun has dried these pools, the local people collect what is a stunningly beautiful salt. Since the spring rises to over 3000 metres in height and is far from any industry, a particularly pure salt is produced.
