Organic Raw cacao powder
Cacao is a top source of antioxidants, and it contains an abundance of magnesium and iron. To make our cacao powder, the finest cacao beans are milled at low temperature to protect the nutrients and flavor. Our cacao powder is a healthy alternative to conventional over-processed “cocoa” used for baking, hot chocolate, desserts and smoothies.
We import the best quality cacao powder Criollo often referred to as the "Queen of Cocoa" for its high quality. Origin: Peru
Cacao is extraordinarily rich in antioxidant flavanoids – the cacao flavanoid group is known collectively as flavanols. The antioxidant provision of foods is measured on a scale referred to as ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity). By this measure, Cacao is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods available. It also boasts a range of amino acids and nutrients that makes cacao an extremely valuable part of a healthy diet.
A well-known Harvard Medical School study investigated the effects of Cacao on the Kuma Indians of Panama, comparing a group given to drinking large quantities of home-prepared Cacao with another exhibiting more modern dietary habits. The results were startling: put simply, the Cacao-consuming group had much lower rates of stroke, cardiovascular disease and cancer than the other.
