Cacao powder is made by milling cacao beans at low temperature into a powder. Great as an alternative to cocoa powder in baking, smoothies, desserts and beverages. 
 

Raw Cacao

Pronounced “cu-COW”, Cacao is the unprocessed form of the cacao bean. Cacao is extracted from the pure, cold-pressed beans of the cacao fruit.
Cacao is only considered “raw” if it has been processed in conditions under 47 degrees. 
Research shows that 60-90% of the antioxidant content of cacao is lost when it is treated and processed – i.e, turned into cocoa.

Why use it?

Cacao has 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries. It is also the highest plant-based source of iron. Being non-heme iron, however, it must be combined with Vitamin C in order to be absorbed. It also has more calcium than cow’s milk. Best of all, it contains mood-boosting neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.
 

Good for:

  • Antioxidants: Raw cacao rates in the top 20 on the ORAC scale (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) which is used to rate the antioxidant capacity of foods
  • Essential fatty acids: Omega-6, which supports healthy skin and nails, and Omega 9, which supports healthy blood cholesterol
  • Magnesium: Essential mineral for muscle repair and relaxation

Yummo

LOVE this powder! Rich and chocolate-y. Never go back to regular cocoa powder after using this, and great to know it’s raw and organic.

Just ordered more ;)
