Product Description

Size: 16 Ounce (Pack of 2)

The Darkest Dark Chocolate

Raw cacao has been enjoyed for its healthy and invigorating properties in South American cultures for thousands of years. Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder is made from the finest organic cacao beans that are hand-selected in Peru and milled at low temperatures to protect the nutrients and flavor. Raw cacao powder is a delicious 100% dark chocolate source of antioxidants, magnesium, iron and fiber. This healthy, single ingredient product provides all of the rich chocolate taste without the extra sugar and industrial processing that can compromise chocolate’s nutritional value and true taste. Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder instantly transforms smoothies, desserts, pies, yogurt, ice cream, and more into healthy chocolate indulgence.

Antioxidants, Fiber, Iron & Magnesium

Cacao is known to be one of nature’s most abundant sources of antioxidants, including flavonols. It’s also a plentiful source of magnesium and iron. Although cacao contains a small amount of caffeine, as well as other stimulants including theobromine, it primarily provides energy through its potent antioxidants and other nutrients that promote blood circulation and oxygenation in the body. Cacao also provides notable quantities of several "good mood" phytochemicals including anandamine and phenylethylamine, which are unique alkaloid chemicals that can help you feel happy.

Organic, Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Kosher & Raw

Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder is made from the highest quality Peruvian cacao beans that are hand-selected by our partners. After undergoing a partial fermentation process to remove bitterness, the beans are cold pressed and the antioxidant-rich cacao fiber is separated away from the fragrant cacao butter at low temperatures and without the use of solvents or chemicals. The fibrous cake is then finely milled into our luxurious cacao powder. Product of Peru, packed in the USA.

Culinary Suggestions for Cacao Powder

Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder has a deep dark chocolate flavor and a fine texture that is easy to blend into a wide variety of hot and cold recipes. We suggest adding it to smoothies, desserts, drinks (hot chocolate), ice cream, yogurt, and granola, or make your own chocolate bars. The last Aztec emperor is said to have preferred his cacao to be blended with Atole or coarse corn flour and whisked into a rich foamy brew flavored with chilies, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.

Try this dairy-free version of a classic recipe. In a small saucepan, heat all the ingredients over low until mixture is warm. Wisk to combine the mixture thoroughly, or briefly whip it in a blender. Tip: hemp milks and almond milks can have varying levels of sweetness, so try adjusting the quantity of coconut palm sugar to your liking. This recipe yields 1 serving.

I figured I would give this powder a try, after my friend who's a vegan chef gave it rave reviews. Basically, I'm really trying to a) improve my eating habits, and b) learn to cook more at home and try different recipes. My friend recommended this, among a few other products, that I could use around the house to increase the health benefits factor of the supplies I'm using, while still trying out the different recipes that I have been. I will say this, this cacao powder is not the same as the sugar chocolate products you get to cook with, and it will not be nearly as sweet, and it has a much more pungent flavor. With that said, I mix mine with a little bit of All Natural Stevia Powder - No fillers, Additives or Artificial Ingredients of Any Kind - Highly Concentrated Stevia Extract Sugar Substitute (125g) and it sweetens it quite a bit without any gross additives, and as a plus I can use like 1/5 of a teaspoon and have the same effect I would if I used a full teaspoon. Anyway, with the cacao powder, I've begun making brownies, cupcakes, hot chocolate, and am shooting for a mousse this weekend. The products all come out richer, and they seem to have a more complex taste than the chocolate powders usually give. I definitely recommend to anyone who has a sweet tooth but would also like to improve their health.

Hello Raw Cacao Lovers!

Here is the real truth about vitamin C (ascorbic acid) content in Raw Cacao:

Despite the trafficked reports circulating the internet, the honest truth remains: even when processed at low temperatures (i.e. "raw"), there is no vitamin C (ascorbic acid) present in cacao.

Recently, highly trafficked websites such as[...] have highlighted the misinformation of cacao's supposed vitamin C content. Included in these reports are claims that raw cacao is "extraordinarily high in vitamin C."

Back in 2004, our Navitas Naturals lab tests directly looked for vitamin C content in raw cacao, but came up negative. Despite these results, the current media blitz brought us back again for another round of lab testing of our best-selling raw cacao products (beans, nibs and powder) for vitamin C. This time, we used two different laboratories instead of one, and utilized three different analytical methods: High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Capilary Electrophoresis (CE) with UV detection, and Titration.

Though all three methods have their place in the scientific community, Titration is the most commonly used method in the food industry when determining vitamin C (ascorbic acid) content. However, there is a critical detail within the Titration method many companies miss when testing raw cacao. The method of Titration is unable to differentiate the vitamin C (ascorbic acid) from the vitamin's analogs. The result is what is known as a "false positive."

This is why, at Navitas Naturals, we use HPLC when testing raw cacao's vitamin C content. The HPLC method looks directly for vitamin C (ascorbic acid), and not just the analogs.

I used this cacao powder frequently until Consumer Lab testing showed high cadmium levels. Here's the link:[...]

Until Navitas addresses this issue, I will not purchase this again. I am extremely disappointed that this organic product has such a high level of this toxic heavy metal.

Update: It looks like Amazon deleted the link. According to Consumer Lab, the upper limit for cadmium is 0.3 mcg/gram (0.3 ppm). Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder contains 0.95 mcg/gram (0.95 ppm) which is over 3 times the upper limit. "Cadmium is a probable carcinogen, can be toxic to kidneys, can cause softening of bones, and may affect fetal development" according to CL. The effects are weight dependent so children will be impacted more.

Taste good, but I need to find cocoa from less polluted area.
I have given up my most favorite drink in Winter because of Cadmium contamination.
My body would be harmed silently by each servings so I must stop till finding a cocoa with less cadmium.
FDA don't protect we consumer in many cases so we must educate ourselves.

I was glad to find an organic cacao powder with extra nutrients at a good price--that is, UNTIL I read the very tiny print on the back of the package, nearly at the bottom so most people won't notice it. It reads: WARNING: This product contains a chemical known in the state of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Even though I'm past child-bearing age, if this product can cause birth defects it may have other harmful side effects. As soon as I read that warning--INTO THE GARBAGE CAN!!! Amazon should do a better job of vetting vendors and products before selling them to unsuspecting customers. At the very least, put such warnings in the product description so buyers can make an informed decision.

High Cadmium and No Answers = No More Purchases (used to buy it all of the time from Amazon); Consumer Lab tests showing three times the allowed Cadmium levels are un-refuted. Makes me sad....I have bought Cocoa Via, am considering Bear Tree Farms as per other reviews.
