Chocolate can be good for you! At least, it is when it comes in the form of Certified Organic Cacao Powder. This substance can be used to make a variety of chocolate treats as well as give you a huge nutritional boost.

Raw, unsweetened cacao powder contains small amounts of caffeine, about 12 milligrams per tablespoon. It’s not enough to make cacao powder into a potent stimulant, like coffee. However, this dose is sufficient for a mild energizing effect, especially in the people who are caffeine-sensitive.

Cacao Benefits for Health and Soul

Raw, organic cacao powder is an incredible product because it can boost your mood. It stimulates the production of endorphins, known as happiness hormones. Therefore, snacking on a cacao-based treat is an excellent idea when you are in a desperate need of cheering up.

However, it’s imperative not to overindulge in treats that contain cacao powder, especially when they have sugar in them too. Usually, it’s advised to have about 1-2 tablespoons of this delicious superfood per day, but there isn’t any particular ‘maximum dosage.’

Health-wise, our Organic Cacao Powder is an excellent source of antioxidants. This means it strengthens your body as a whole and improves your general well-being.

Cacao: Nutrition Information

You don’t have to worry about cacao calories much as this food contains so much fiber and essential nutrients, that every extra calorie it brings into your diet is worth it. Due to fiber, it’s great for the digestive and cardiovascular health support.

However, the most valuable things about raw cacao are iron and calcium. Both these elements are difficult to get through diet, so the high level of them in this food makes it an excellent choice for everyone. Vegans definitely should eat it regularly as they might struggle with designing an iron-rich meal plan.

Bodybuilders and athletes, who must mind their calorie intake and need to have more protein and fiber would benefit from unsweetened cacao as well because it contains significant amounts of both. Besides, calcium, magnesium, and manganese help support bone health.

Raw, unsweetened cacao powder is gluten-free and safe to include in any diet.

How to Store and Use Raw Cacao Powder

You can try hundreds of cacao powder recipes for desserts, baked goods, and confections. It also goes very well when added to smoothies or hot drinks. Note that baking cacao might be different from raw cacao powder as the latter doesn’t contain any additives and its natural taste is quite bitter.

When it comes to buying cacao powder, bulk is the best way to go, as technically, it doesn’t expire. The ‘best by’ date on the package is only a direction, not necessarily an irreversible time limit. When unopened, a pack of raw powder can be used for up to 2 years after the ‘expiration’ date. Opened packages should be restricted to one year after the ‘best by’. Note that cacao powder doesn’t spoil, it just loses its beneficial properties over time.

    • That is so great! Makes all the difference to myself and my family to be getting such high quality from your company.

  3. Is Food To Live Organic Cocoa Powder Non Dutched and Non Alkalized?

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • This is Dutch-process cocoa that’s been treated with an alkalizing agent to lower cocoa acidity, thus allowing more of its pure chocolate flavor to shine through.

    • Then why the warning that the product contains chemicals that cause cancer

      Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Hello,

      This is due to Proposition 65 that is mandated by law.

      Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Under product info:
      WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
      Yes this is mandated by CA law ONLY when named chemicals, elements or poisons are elevated to a degree as set forth by the state. It’s NOT a good thing. Practicall NOTHING you find on shelves in a store will have this warning except a pack of cigarettes.

      Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Regarding warning, We have to comply with the California Proposition 65 rule. We have added a warning statement to any product that was part of litigation based on the Prop 65 rule. Even though our products don’t contain any chemical elements that in fact pose any health risk, we prefer to post a warning to avoid any litigations. You can read more about this topic here: http://prop65scam.com/. Most of the companies who are selling superfoods have the same warnings on their sites.

      It is done to protect us against lawsuits as it is very costly (millions $) to defend a position in a court. We prefer to remove any litigation risk by putting a label on, even though our products are 100% safe.
