Other suppliers CLAIM
their product is RAW, but only we can verify the temperatures of our
process with video evidence. Every single cacao bean used to produce
this powder is grown by a cooperative of over 3,000 small farmers in
Bali, who wild-harvest cacao pods from their own certified Organic
food-forests. Produced with safety in mind at every step, cacao beans
from freshly split pods are fermented under control at 40C and then
washed in potable water before being solar-dried.
“raw” cacao powders made by large processors with high-heat filter
presses, our raw cacao nibs are cold-pressed in small batches on
proprietary equipment developed specifically for VERIFIED RAW
low-temperature processing, under 120°F.
After pressing the
butter from the nibs, the concentrated “cake” left behind is low in fat
(22%), but not as low as other powders. Why? Because it takes heat to
get all the oil out. The cacao cake is cold-milled to a powder and then
fine sieved for use as cacao powder. Never touched by high heat, never
contaminated by clarifying chemicals or solvents and never force
filtered, it retains high levels of nutrients and antioxidants.
to final packing, every lot of cacao is tested at an independent lab
for a full microbial analysis. These results are always available for
nutrient-rich, Verified Raw <120°F Organic Bali Cacao Powder is
perfect in RAW smoothies, hot chocolates, raw desserts and fudges, and
manufactured products like energy bars and artisan RAW chocolates.
RAW cacao powder has a distinctive flavor that doesn’t necessarily
register as chocolatey as high heat filter pressed processed cacao
powders. The flavor profile is green, astringent, pure and fruity. It is
noticeably more energizing than a typical cacao powder, so it’s ideal
for the living foods communities, but specialty chefs and other
connoisseurs will be excited to try this totally unique product as well.
Cacao is one of the BEST sources of magnesium of ALL foods. Magnesium
balances brain chemistry, builds strong bones, and is associated with
more happiness. Cacao is also high in the mineral sulfur; sulfur has
traditional been believed to build strong nails, hair, shiny skin,
detoxifies the liver, and supports healthy pancreas functioning.
Raw chocolate contains more than 300 known nutrient chemicals, and
there are compounds in chocolate that may be associated with the good
feeling that raw chocolate consumption provides. Certain chemicals in
chocolate may inhibit the natural breakdown of anandamide. This means
that natural anandamide (or introduced anandamide) may stick around
longer, making us feel good longer, when we eat chocolate.
Why Customers Should Buy This Cacao Powder:
If you want a Verified RAW (Processed under 120°F) Cacao Powder for a
truly RAW cacao product this is your choice. We are one of only two
companies in the USA that carries this product
¨ This is one of
the most nutritious and easy-to-use forms of chocolate in existence. One
company we’ve sold to uses it in a line of chocolate pastes. Others
have added it to energy bars. Some use it in drink mixes. The
possibilities are endless. Our clients have sold many tons of this
product to people who use it for anything from smoothies to ice cream to
chocolate bars and more.
¨ 87,800 ORAC score per 100 grams
We test and share the antioxidant levels of our products and
bacteriological levels. It is important to test in the US because cacao
often comes from extreme third-world countries where testing procedures
and technology are less evolved. Plus, we’ve found that when suppliers
test a product in their own country, the result is often suspiciously
what they “want.” So these tests have far less credibility.
This product has a flavor that rivals even the finest roasted cocoa
powders, without the roasted taste. People love it because it tastes
great, is incredibly healthy, is easy to use, and gives them energy for
many hours on end.
Frequently Asked Questions:
I’ve heard that cacao powder can’t be raw. Is yours Verified RAW?
companies are selling products that aren’t really raw because cacao is a
cheap global commodity, and anyone can make a profit by selling non-raw
cacao products as “raw.”
We are the first company to document
our cacao powder/butter processing on video for the world to see. So
far, no other company can or will do that.
How do I know if this product is right for me?
That depends on what you want to do. Different cacao products have different strengths and weaknesses.
RAW (Processed under 120°F) Cacao Powder is likely the only available
Verified RAW cacao powder on the market. So, if you want to make a truly
Verified RAW chocolate product this is the way to go. You will taste
the difference. Because most of the fat is removed, the overall
concentration of antioxidants and nutrients is higher in this product.
If you are making a bar that already has nuts and seeds (both of which
are oily), then you may want the oil-free dryness of Cacao Powder. It
will give your product the chocolate flavor and nutrition but maintain
the texture you’re looking for. It also works very well in chocolate
drinks because it blends much easier into liquids. Also, it can be added
to cosmetic products (for antioxidants and exfoliation), colon health
products (because its magnesium content makes it a laxative), energy
supplements (its theobromine makes it naturally stimulating) and more.
