What is organic Cacao Powder?
Originating from the tropical climates in South America, the Theobroma Cacao tree was sacred amongst the Mayans and Aztecs. Produced by organic growers in Peru, Cacao beans embody a source of minerals. Harvested as pods, the raw beans are selected and fermented to reduce their initial bitterness. After cleaning the dried beans in natural water, they are peeled and their core extracted to be broken into “nibs”. These are ground into Cacao paste. The fat from the paste is extracted from the solid part and the residue dried and finely ground into Cacao powder. Organic Cacao Powder is certified organic by the Soil Association under the code GB-ORG-05.

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.Goes Well With:Shakes
Great price and what more could you want. Blends well in my shakes Goes Well With:Vegan protein blend shake
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.
A great way to make protein shakes taste better. I always opt for the unflavored option with any type of protein shakes and add some cacao powder for taste. Also good source of iron. Goes Well With:Protein shakes
Very good product.Goes Well With:Prefer in its own or in shake.
I always buy this powder from my local health shop and you can't compare the prices. Excellent value on this site!Goes Well With:Milkshakes.
Quick delivery, excellent taste and quality Goes Well With:Smoothies, baking
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 value for money and is such a versatile product to use in smithies drink or cakes. So much better to add this to a smoothie as is all natural and healthier than other choco substitutes. Goes Well With:Smoothies
