Our Organic Cacao Powder is 100% pure Cacao powder derived from exceptionally high-quality organic cacao beans.

Our Organic Cacao Powder is exceptionally high in many essential minerals, especially magnesium which is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. Raw cacao contains high amounts of iron and is in fact one of the highest plant-based sources of iron. Iron is crucial in the formation of hemoglobin, healthy immune function, energy production, and much more.
Rich in phosphorus, antioxidant minerals like copper, zinc, manganese, and selenium – they work together to scavenge free radicals and protect your cells from oxidative stress.
Cacao has an impressive range of phytochemicals – theobromine in raw cacao has been found to influence our moods and alertness in a positive way making this responsible for the “feel good” factor we get from eating chocolate. Flavonoids are another group of phytochemicals found in cacao – these have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which work in concert with the high amounts of antioxidant minerals in this powder.
