The Healing properties of raw cacao:

  • Magnesium: Magnesium is the primarily mineral missing when heart problems occur. Magnesium increases the overall vigor of the heart muscle. This mineral also decreases blood coagulation thus lowering blood pressure and helping the heart pump more effectively. Cacao, of course, is a fantastic food source of heart-supporting magnesium.
  • Antioxidants: According to research cited in The New York Times, fresh cacao beans are super-rich in antioxidant flavonols. Cacao beans contain 10,000 milligrams (10 grams) per 100 grams of flavonol antioxidants. This is a whopping 10% antioxidant concentration level! This makes cacao one of the richest sources of antioxidants of any food.
  • Anti-depressant: Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, and phenylethylamine, three well-studied neurotransmitters, which help alleviate depression and are associated with feelings of well being. Cacao contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) that improve our mood because they allow serotonin and dopamine to remain in the bloodstream longer without being broken down. Cacao contains anandamide which delivers blissful feelings. Cacao also contains B vitamins, which are associated with brain health. Cacao contains significant quantities of the amino acid tryptophan which is yet another powerful mood-enhancing nutrient. All this makes cacao a natural Anti-depressant!
  • Slimming! Anyone who eats chocolate knows that it diminishes appetite. There is evidence indicating MAOIs also diminish appetite. There is actually no scientific evedince to implicate chocolate consumption with obesity. In fact the reverse seems to be the case. Eating cacao helps one to loose weight by allowing you to eat less.


Cacao Powder has a strong, rich, dark bitter chocolate flavour. Perfect to make raw chocolate desserts of all kinds. Blend into your favourite smoothies for a taste and health boost. Make your own healthy chocolates at home!

Note: Recommended daily intake is 5 to 20 grams.

I LOVE this cacao powder. It is beyond delicious. I always have this in my pantry. It's great for making hot chocolate, adding it to shakes and baking.

It has the richest, most smoothest of chocolatey flavours. I have tried a few cacao powders but this has to be rated one of the best that I have used, especially when I want to make something special. Doesn't take much to create something delicious!

A good quality product - I used it for baking and compared it to my usual brand. Because this product is not heat treated, there is a big difference in flavour and colour. This is a more natural and pure product and therefore has less of the roasted flavour of regular cacao powder.

This is the best cacao powder I have ever tried. Just one teaspoon added to a smoothie gives it a great chocolate flavour. Definitely better quality cacao compared to the ones I have bought from supermarkets in the past.

My winter soul food. I make hot chocolate every night to keep out the cold. Rich, chocolatey and delicious!

I buy this product often. I use this in my morning smoothie, to make my gluten-free muffins and in baking. It is fabulous and just the right amount of chocolate goodness.

It cured my unnatural sweet tooth and choc cravings.

Best standard of quality health-wise of a cocoa replacement and superfood - so many things it can be added to! Tastes great, very chocolatey, not too bitter.

I used this cocoa to make a special blend of medicinal hot chocolate and it is simply delicious.

I bought this product at my local healthstore and made paleo chocolate brownies. Oh my yum! Nothing quite like the real cocoa deal. Death by healthy chocolate. Definitely worth every cent.

Nothing beats the taste of raw organic cacao, whether in baking, candy making or in a smoothy. Ive become a chocoholic since discovering organic cacao.

This cacao is fantastic! It tastes great and is quite versatile. I add some of this cacao powder into my dehydrated muesli. I also add it to my daily smoothies to give me an energy boost and its a delicious addition to my coffee. I also use it when making desserts and peanut butter energy balls. Goodness without guilt. I love it!
