Food of the Gods

Revered by ancient cultures as the food of the gods, Cacao was once traded as currency. Today, science is catching up with the ancients: these sugarless treats provide more cell-protecting antioxidants than any food on earth! Plus they contain mood-boosting phytochemicals (including theobromine and anandamide) and they provide some of the same molecules your brain produces when you're happy or in love.

Purity

Cacao Powder is made by cold-pressing cacao butter from the beans, cutting down on fat calories while still giving you all of cacao's vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants.

When we first pioneered RAW cacao and chocolate 10 years ago, our primary concern was microbial purity. Traditionally, since the cacao destined for chocolate production is cooked and heavily processed, fresh cacao beans were fermented in the open jungle, with little concern for purity. For this reason, when we pioneered RAW cacao, we had to develop pristine fermentation techniques and facilities. The explosive popularity of RAW cacao led to many copycats selling cacao that was contaminated with mold, yeast, and bacteria. As always, we use careful processing and lab testing to guarantee that our cacao is 100% free of pathogens like E. coli, staph, and salmonella.

Beyond Fair-Trade

Other suppliers CLAIM their product is RAW, but we have actually verified 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 104 F and then washed in potable water before being solar-dried and pressed in custom equipment that never exceeds 118 F.

Low-Temp Process

Cacao beans from freshly split pods are fermented under control at 40°C / 104°F and then washed in potable water before being solar-dried.

The beans are machine "cracked" into nibs, and the papery skins are separated from the nibs simply by fan power.

The nibs are then fed into a hydraulic press that squeezes them, pressing out the buttery golden oil. After pressing the butter from the nibs, the concentrated cake left behind is low in fat (about 22%, while our Peruvian cacao powder is about 11%).

The cacao cake is then cold-milled to a powder and then fine sieved for use as cacao powder.

Never contaminated by clarifying chemicals or solvents, it retains high levels of nutrients and antioxidants. Prior to final packing, every lot of cacao is tested at an independent lab for a full microbial analysis.
