 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.

  1. So rich it makes Bill Gates look like a bankrupt.

    Posted by David Avery on 13th Aug 2018

    I've recently started making chocolate. A lot of chocolate to be precise and this stuff is so rich you have to be a bit careful lest you reach your recommended quota in one sitting.
    It mixes well with the cacao butter to make a really dense, dark chocolate.
    Give it to the kids only if you want them awake for the next 72 hours.


  2. Great Taste/GREAT Value

    Posted by His Holiness The Raw Vegan Guy... HO Hum! on 2nd Aug 2018

    As a raw vegan, cacao is a must in my house for sweet treats to reward my general food holiness ;-)

    This is my go-to powder given its taste and TREMENDOUS VALUE!

    At this price, I wouldn't consider any other!


  3. best cacao powder makes the best chocolate and energy balls

    Posted by Mary Kitt on 22nd Jun 2018

    An excellent product value for money. You can't go wrong flavoursome chocolate and energy balls every time. I took to making my own chocolate because of all the additives in shop bought stuff even the expensive chocolate have them. I use coconut cream and a natural fruit syrup to sweeten my chocolate it is safe for diabetics

  5. GREAT VALUE & TASTE!

    Posted by Earl Jiaogulan on 19th Feb 2018

    My wife uses a LOT of this to prepare food for me as I am a raw vegan. This particular Cacao powder is very good in terms of taste and consistence of powder granule size (not clumpy like other brands).

    Also the price is fantastic as is the packaging and the availability of a range of sizes adds up to it being the winner among all available UK cacao powder products in my book! ;-)
