Organic Cocoa Powder from Food To Live is a product your whole family can enjoy. It will help you create some incredible desserts and delicious sauces that are right for you. Our Organic Cocoa is grown and processed using the most advanced tools to ensure it’s safe and 100% free from toxic contaminants.
The unsweetened organic cocoa can be used to make tasty and healthy drinks. Unlike Starbucks cocoa, which is laden with sugar and extra calories, you can use this powder to create your own hot beverage that can be vegan and low-fat.
Cocoa powder is naturally vegan and gluten-free, so you can include it in any diet. However, cocoa mixes can be different, so it’s always best to buy a natural product. Even cocoa butter is dairy-free and can be used as a substitute in many recipes.
Please bear in mind that organic cocoa contains a tiny amount of caffeine. It’s nowhere near as stimulating as coffee or even tea, but it can help clear your mind a bit when you are feeling tired.
Organic Cocoa Powder Vs. Cacao Powder
Cocoa powder is a little different from cacao powder because it’s processed differently. Cacao is made from raw, minimally processed cocoa beans and therefore retains almost all nutrients they contain. However, this results in a very bitter taste and reduced shelf life.
The organic cocoa powder is treated with heat during the processing. This reduces the nutritional value a little. However, this process improves the taste and ensures that the product can be stored for months.
Nutritional Value of Cocoa Powder (Unsweetened)
Cocoa powder isn’t fattening if eaten in moderation. It contains a great amount of fiber and a fairly high dose of easily-digestible proteins. It also gives you a small boost of many nutrients. Organic cocoa powder doesn’t contain many vitamins, only those of B group are present in significant amounts. However, it’s very rich in essential minerals, especially:
How to Use and Store Organic Cocoa Powder
You can enjoy Food To Live Organic Cocoa making both sour and sweet dishes. Its most popular applications are smoothies, desserts, and baked goods. However, you can also find exotic recipes of cocoa sauces, curries, and chili.
Adding a spoonful of unsweetened cocoa to your protein shake will boost its nutritional value and taste. You can also use this product to enhance any fruit smoothie or your morning cereal.
Making delicious vegan chocolate is impossible without cocoa powder. It can also be utilized in a variety of homemade cosmetics. Bear in mind that cocoa products have different effects on the skin.
For example, cocoa butter is a good moisturizer for extremely dry skin. However, cocoa powder has a brightening and anti-inflammatory effect, so it goes best in masks and scrubs.
Food To Live Organic Cocoa Powder should be stored in an airtight container in a cool and dry place. Keep it in the fridge to maximize shelf life.
