What is Cacao Powder?

Organic Cacao Powder is produced from the beans of the Theobroma Cacao tree. Cacao refers to the whole beans, or the powder of the bean if it has not been heated during its processing.

The Theobroma Cacao tree is a small evergreen tree which is part of the Malvaceae family, also known as the mallows. It is native to tropical areas of the Americas but is now more specifically grown in areas of West Africa.

The tree produces large pods, which is where the cacao beans are housed. The cacao bean itself is coated in a thin, white membrane, which wears away during the drying process, so that the cacao bean is eventually a brown- or reddish colour by the time that it is ready to be ground into a powder.

Is Cacao Powder vegan?

As our Cacao Powder is sourced from 100% Organic Cacao Beans, it is not only vegan-friendly, but also suitable for those with gluten and dairy intolerances.

Wow to Cacao

Exactly what was promised! Also great value, flavour and consistency! Personally love it as a hot chocolate substitute or with a little boiling water to create syrup for pancakes. A small spoonful in a coffee shake creates a mocha option also!
Goes Well With:
Protein pancakes to give a little contrast kick

Cacao Powder

I made the mistake when first used this to add 10 grams, which just ruined everything as it tasted too bitter. Now I just use a teaspoon or two & taste before adding more. It's so much more palatable now & I enjoy the dark chocolate taste.
Goes Well With:
Chocolate Angel Delight, porridge & weetabix

Great Replacement

A great tasting powder that I use in my own shakes with milk,raw egg and Collagen Protein. I also now use it in my teenagers milkshakes where I replace the three heaped teaspoons of well known shake mix ( which once I looked at the label I realised is 75% sugar), the kids love it and I am happy we have cut their sugar intake down substantially.

Amazing

Probably the nicest cacao powder I've tasted. and yes cacao powders do get bad reviews for being bitter, but Myprotein Cacao Powder doesn't have even a hint of bitterness making it go well with everyday eating. Obviously it doesn't taste exactly like chocolate but it's something different and worth trying. 10/10
Goes Well With:
everything. Protein shakes. Breakfast. Toast. Cakes. Muffins.
