About

Eaten and cultivated by the ancient Mayans, cacao is considered a “superfood” that will leave you feeling happy & revitalised. Cacao powder is made from organic raw cacao beans, which are the seeds of an Amazonian fruiting tree and source of all chocolate and cocoa products. As the temperature is never allowed to exceed 40°C, the powder is considered a ‘raw’ food with all heat-sensitive vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants remaining intact, thereby maximising digestion and absorption.

Served Best

Being the less processed option, organic raw cacao powder is the perfect alternative to cocoa in baking so just substitute it where a recipe asks for cocoa powder.

How To Cook

Add to smoothies or milkshakes, make hot chocolate, sprinkle on coffee or ice-cream, add to cookie or muffin batter, or substitute for regular cocoa powder in dessert recipes. Cacao is also a good caffeine alternative.
