Description

Organic Natural Cacao Powder is perfect for baking.

Organic Natural Cacao Powder is ground down from roasted cacao nibs.  This process gives you powdered chocolate in its purest form.  The beans are fermented and roasted in a careful process.  This breaks down the phytates in the beans and gives them a roasted flavour,  making our cacao powder perfect for delicious cakes.

Cacao is often referred to as ‘food of the gods’.  This is due to its rich taste and nutritional power. Cacao contains over 300 chemically distinct compounds and is rich in plant polyphenols.  The most beneficial polyphenols are called flavonoids, these have an antioxidant action in the body.

Most regular chocolate choices contain milk, sugar and other additives thrown in.  If you want to make your own natural versions, cacao powder is a perfect starting point.

This delicious powder can be used in baking, homemade chocolates and smoothies.  Cacao is a source of selenium, this contributes to normal function of the thyroid and immune system.  It is also a source of magnesium which is necessary for the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.  A great excuse to make more cacao based foods!

We also stock organic raw cacao butter and organic raw cacao nibs.

Family Tip:

  • We love making dairy free chocolate treats – watching our toddler eat banana chocolate mousse full of avocado, fresh banana and naturally good cacao powder is great for our conscience.
  • If you love chocolate cake then this is the best chocolate source to use to flavour your recipes – nutrient rich and bursting with rich chocolate flavour.
