Cacao powder is derived from the cacao pod found in cacao fruit trees. Cacao is full of antioxidants and the flavanols found in cacao have many health benefits.

Have you ever heard that dark chocolate can reduce the risk of cancer, heart attack, stroke and improve overall cholesterol and blood pressure levels?

Cacao contains more antioxidants than dark chocolate so add it into your diet today!  It also contains serotonin and dopamine which stimulates feelings of happiness.

Here are some ways you can start adding cacao to your diet:

  1. Add cacao to your smoothies.
  2. Sprinkle cacao powder over fresh fruit or yogurt.
  3. Add it into your brownies or other desserts as a substitute for processed chocolate.

We use raw cacao on many of or protein bars and also sell it by the 1lb bag
