Sales of cacao and chocolate to the United States escalate every year.

Cacao is the bean that chocolate is made from. In its raw state, it contains more antioxidant flavonoids than red wine, green tea and blueberries. Our raw cacao is high in fiber and vitamin C and a good source of iron and protein!

WFN cacao powder is certified organic and raw. Our premium cacao beans come directly from the farmers who cultivate them. These farmers grow their crops on their own land, using the same sustainable methods that have been used for generations. These cacao beans are of the Forastero, Trinitario and Criollo varieties, grown in the Dominican Republic. They are USDA certified organic. They are packed by Wilderness Family Naturals in the USA.

The cacao powder is created by cold-pressing raw, organic cacao beans into a pressed cake separating the oil from the protein and fiber. The temperature is never allowed to exceed 120° F and is usually 104° F (all other cocoa powders are exposed to temperatures as high as 300° F!). A high-accuracy thermometer monitors the process. The remaining dry 'cake-like' material is then cold-ground and fine-milled so that only the finest raw cacao particles become the finished product.

This raw cacao powder has antioxidant activity as exhibited by an ORAC score of 1377 μmol TE/g.

A few months ago I began adding raw cacao to my husband's and my diet. We consume some daily and it was becoming expensive. I'm thrilled to have found Wilderness Family Naturals! Their raw cacao powder is excellent. It is a high quality powder and tastes simply delicious. The ability to purchase raw cacao powder in bulk quantity, at such an affordable price, will make it much easier to continue using this health-promoting product. And let me add that Wilderness Family Naturals has AWESOME customer service! Thank you Wilderness Family!

I find this raw cacao tastes fresher and 'fruitier' than other raw cacao powders I have used. In addition, making raw CACAO, which is a SUPERFOOD, so accessible in pricing that everybody can afford it, is a great service to the growing raw food community and to the many people who have an easier time adding raw food to their diet when they get introduced to the concept via my Raw Chocolate Cake.... A BIG Thank You!
