 Product Description

organic-food-federation.pngNote: The 25kg sack option is a big sack of cacao powder. It does not come in individual 1kg packets.

The beans used for our organic cacao powder are grown in the Peruvian amazon, the spiritual home of cacao. Our beans are 100% organic raw Criollo cacao beans, prized for their superior flavour.

Our cacao products neither roasted nor Dutch processed (alkalized), making them raw.

Cacao is a superfood in its own right, packed full of nutrients and antioxidants. As well as being suitable for drinking and baking, our cacao is ideal for making chocolate. As with any pure cacao, it has a naturally bitter taste and may need a sweetener.

None of our cacao products contain any additives or preservatives. This is 100% cacao, nothing added, nothing taken away! 

Cacao and Peru have a long history together, with the fruit and its beans having been enjoyed by natives long before it was exported worldwide.

There are various different varieties of cacao, however the Criollo variety is growing rapidly in popularity due to its higher quality resulting from greater fat content. Exquisite Peruvian cacao is well suited to agroforestry systems, which have less environmental impact compared to plantations in West Africa where it is typically grown in direct sunlight with fertilisers. This has led to substantial deforestation and makes Peruvian cacao a more sustainable option.

Almost all of Peru’s cacao is grown by small holders who rely on cacao’s weekly harvest (April – September) as their main source of income. Their crop is then sold to cooperatives who act as intermediaries; the cacao is then processed in Peru before being trucked to Lima and exported to the UK where we lovingly package it before sending it to you.

*High street price is based on price in a well known high street health store. Price calculated as equivalent price per gram at time of writing and may change over time without us knowing. Where larger packs were not available on the high street total is calculated from purchasing multiple packs.

  7. Good product

    Posted by Cholocate friend on 28th Oct 2016

    Very good cacao, fresh, smells and tastes good. On the packages outside is little bit too much powder/flour so you have to wipe it off, but the price is so good that its not big deal. Customer service is very good. Recommend and will buy more.

  10. The best what you can find

    Posted by Betty on 25th May 2016

    I have tried an Indonesian raw cacao powder before. That one was sour so I started to look for another one and found Nukraft. I was not disappointed! It is just perfect, so delicious. Also reasonably priced. I certainly will order more! Thank you!
