Certified Organic Cacao Powder
The fruit of the cacao tree contains a small bean from which all chocolate is made. Cacao is an incredible health food in its natural state, filled with energy-boosting nutrients. Loaded with minerals such as magnesium which may contribute to normal bone health and healthy immune function, cacao is also high in copper and manganese. This amazing food has been revered for centuries by cultures such as the Aztec and Maya.

The Sunfood Difference™
Our cacao powder is made from only the finest variety of certified organic heirloom cacao beans, which have never been hybridized or genetically modified. Our cold-pressing process reduces the fat content of the cacao, allowing us to grind it down to create a fine, richly flavored, easy-to-use powder. Through this low temperature process, we are able to preserve the delicate nutrients and true, natural taste of cacao.

Benefits

Cacao has:

Magnesium which may contribute to normal bone health and immunity

Calcium
which may assist in supporting strong bones

Potassium which may help maintain healthy blood pressure in combination with a low sodium diet

Selenium which may support a healthy immune system and assist neutralization of free radicals

Caffeine Content in Cacao:

Unlike coffee, the caffeine content in chocolate is extremely low and usually insignificant. The primary compound responsible for Cacao’s energizing properties is Theobromine a cardiovascular stimulant that has less impact on the central nervous system than caffeine. It is also a vasodilator and diuretic, and relaxes the smooth muscles including those in the respiratory system. These properties have been shown in scientific studies to promote healthy blood pressure and relaxation. However, in larger amounts, theobromine may produce some uncomfortable effects the way caffeine can. Contrary to caffeine, which usually causes insomnia and anxiety, theobromine has been shown in studies to be beneficial to sleep. The theobromine and minimal caffeine content of cacao is not linked to sleep disturbances or anxiety.

 

Suggested Use

Add cacao powder to your favorite smoothie, yogurt and drinks to create healthy chocolate treats.
