Want the pure taste of real chocolate without the sugar or fat content of most commercial offerings? Then go straight to the source. This certified organic raw cacao powder is produced from organically grown cacao beans (the seeds of the fruit from Theobroma cacao trees) from the Dominican Republic. The beans are ground and pressed to separate out the oil (which becomes cacao butter) to create a delicious, low-fat, premium unsweetened cocoa powder, which you can use in smoothies, ice cream, chocolate recipes, or as a topping.

Product Notes:

Cacao won't just give your taste buds a lift -- although it doesn't have much caffeine, it does naturally contain the stimulant called Theobromine (from the Greek words for "food" of the "gods") which, while not as strong, is longer lasting, and won't cause palpitations or headaches. Raw unroasted cacao is an antioxidant, and as dietary support it may be able to help lower blood pressure and improve insulin sensitivity and mood.


Raw fermented cacao nibs and sweetened cacao nibs are also available (sold separately).

Ingredients:

Gluten-free, vegan, kosher certified organic raw cocoa powder. Natural Cocoa Powder contains greater quantities of calcium, copper, magnesium, phosphors potassium, sodium and zinc when compared to other types of cocoa products.

Suggested Usage:

Or make a delicious bun or toast topping by mixing two teaspoons with a nut or seed butter like almond or hazelnut and a sweetener such as honey or agave syrup and a dash of salt.
