Product description

Size Name:500g

Organic Cacao Powder. Cacao, or Cocoa, is an evergreen tree, which grows naturally in tropical climates around the world. Cacao has for centuries been predominant to diets in its native areas, yet in recent times, has attracted attention for its nutritional content, and health benefits associated with its antioxidants.

Sevenhills Wholefoods source their beans from South America, and only those of a premium variety. Its seed pods are harvested by hand. They are broken apart and left until the soft flesh surrounding the bean has fermented and run off as liquid. The fermentation process affects the taste of the beans, which lose some bitter flavours. The beans are washed, cleaned, dried, then peeled and broken into small pieces (nibs). The nibs are pressed to extract the fat content, which is known as cacao butter. The resulting 'cake' is milled to a fine powder.

Cacao contains many nutrients, including Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium and Iron, known to help maintain healthy teeth, bones, muscles, nervous and immune systems. This is in addition to the product's antioxidant content, which helps fight off ageing effects, by reducing oxidative-stress cell damage.

As Sevenhills Wholefoods' cacao powder may be exposed to temperature over 45°C during processing, they do not market it as raw. Sevenhills Wholefoods also offer a raw variety of cacao powder.

Recommended use: versatile powder which can easily be added to diets. Use in baking, or mix with food and smoothies.

Why buy from Sevenhills Wholefoods? Sevenhills Wholefoods source Superfoods of the highest quality and the best prices. Working closely with local farmers, ensuring local communities can flourish and in turn improving the lives of the farmers and their families.

This is the nicest organic cacao I've come across. I had previously purchased a very expensive, tiny jar of "raw" cacao but, when it was time to replace it, spent some time researching the product only to find it hadn't been raw at all. However, reading up led me to what is apparently a heated (no pun intended...) discussion about whether raw cacao is actually better for you or harmful. Please do take a moment to do your own research if you instantly think (like I did) that raw was better. I've actually been convinced now that it's not. Ergo, I prefer Sevenhills Organics over brands that produce (or claim to produce) raw cacao.

That aside, this really is great cacao. I use it in baking, desserts, and drinks. For those of you looking for a cocoa (hot chocolate) recipe, here's what I do: heat a mug's worth of milk (dairy or non-dairy) over medium heat until scalded (little bubbles appear around the edges). Add in a heaping tea spoon (not a teaspoon measure, just your favourite little spoon) of cacao, two teaspoons of sugar (or sugar substitute), a tiny pinch of sea salt, and a big pinch of vanilla bean powder (or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract). Mix over medium heat with a whisk until smooth. Adjust cacao and sweetener content to your liking. I promise, it doesn't take much longer than pre-made mix. (Yes, you can also use it with microwaved milk.)

Do keep in mind, if you've not used natural cacao before, that it's naturally an "oily" product and thus will not emulsify easily in cold liquids without some help. For example, if you try to stir it into cold milk it will just settle on the top and in little powdery balls of uselessness.

Have use this in several recipes for making vegan chocolate.. Its quite strong so I found that I had to reduce the quantities in some recipes or it tended to make them bitter. Would buy this again. Think it is good value for money.

This is the best Organic Cacao I've ever had (I've tried pretty much all of them). The flavour is so fresh and it tastes like the beans were ground up yesterday. Consistency is a fine powder and smell is aromatic and fragrant. This has so many uses from adding it to your smoothie, cooking and even beauty.

I love mixing dark cherries, banana and some of this Organic Cacao Powder to make a lovely rich smoothie.

Don't hesitate to buy this!

I needed some Organic Cocoa Powder as I wanted to make some chocolate brownies and this was listed as one of the ingredients,I honestly struggled to find Organic Cocoa Powder anywhere in Asda's, Tesco's and Morrison's

At the time of purchasing this product it was priced at £6.99 and I can rest happy knowing that it was £6.99 well spent as it fulfilled the job perfectly.

The brownies definitely looked and tasted delicious!

I honestly don't know why I buy cacao powder.
I really don't like how bitter it is and add it to smoothies to give a chocolate hit, I really should just add coco powder.

This does taste the best of a lot of other cacao powders but I'm really not a fan of how bitter it can be.

It's sour in taste and light brown in colour so a bit different than regular cocoa.

The best cacao I've ever tasted.
Very chocolatey and rich and 'creamy'.
This is a repeat order (3rd)
