What is Raw Organic Cacao Powder (Chocolate Powder)?

  • All chocolate is made from Cacao Beans (also known as Cocoa Beans). Cacao is chocolate! All the antioxidant value, mineral benefits, neurotransmitter rejuvenating properties, and overall health-giving qualities of chocolate are found in raw Cacao Beans! Organic raw cacao powder is created by taking the nibs and then cold-pressing the oil out. When the oil is removed from the nibs, what results is dense, nutritionally packed dry mass. This mass is then ground into fine powder. Throughout this process every precaution is taken to ensure that no heat is used and maximum potency results.  Raw Organic Chocolate Powder has a delightful, full, antioxidant-rich chocolate flavor.


RAW Cacao Ingredients:

  • Just one ingredient: raw, organic cacao powder.  No sugar, no dairy.


How To Use Raw Cacao Powder:

  • Add cacao powder to all your favorite smoothies, teas, coffee mixes, smoothies, desserts or anything else you can think of.  Just one or two spoonfuls can transform any recipe into a healthy chocolate treat.  It even goes great on top of fresh fruit!

Storage:

  • Refrigeration or storage in a cool, dry place (out of direct sunlight) is recommended, yet not required.

      Hello Pavia,

      If you are using whole cacao beans crunch them between your fingers to loosen and remove the peel.

      MAO Inhibitors
      “Cacao seems to diminish appetite, probably due to its monoamine oxidase enzyme inhibitors (MAO inhibitors) – these are different from digestive enzyme inhibitors found in most nuts and seeds. These rare MAO inhibitors actually produce favorable results when consumed by allowing more serotonin and other neurotransmitters to circulate in the brain. According to Dr. Gabriel Cousens, MAO inhibitors facilitate rejuvenation.” (sourced – http://www.thepowermall.com/thecenterforhealth/healthy_food/chocolate.htm)

      I hope this helps, amie sue

  2. I live in the Tropics where we can get raw cacao beans fairly cheaply in the market. I LOVE them! I have found some great recipes online (including your ice cream recipe – not made it yet though) And eating alot of the beans do make you kind of overactive – it did me anyway. So i am tempering myself. I found a great chocoltae cake smoothie recipe somewhere online and that is my favourite treat sometimes once per week, and it does fill you up to the brim for ages! Awesome stuff!
