    Source and Processing
    Navitas Naturals cacao beans are hand-selected for quality, partially fermented to alleviate bitterness, and processed at low temperatures for maximum nutrient retention. Once extracted from the pod-like fruit, purified water is used to cleanse the beans. The whole beans are peeled and cold-pressed to from a paste, the bean's oil is extracted, and our nutrient-dense cacao powder is formed. Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder contains 100% pure cacao powder that is certified organic, kosher, vegan, and raw.

    Cacao (kə-kau, ka-kow): the dried seeds of a South American evergreen tree (Theobroma cacao of the family Sterculiaceae), which are most commonly used in making cocoa, chocolate, and cocoa butter. Also called cacao bean, and cocoa bean.

    The Truth About Vitamin C In Cacao:
    Despite the popular reports circulating the internet, the honest truth remains: even when processed at low temperatures (i.e. "raw"), there is no vitamin C (ascorbic acid) present in cacao.

    Back in 2004, Navitas Naturals lab tests directly looked for vitamin C content in raw cacao, but came up negative. Despite these results, the current media blitz brought us back again for another round of lab testing of our best-selling raw cacao products (beans, nibs and powder) for vitamin C. This time, we used two different laboratories instead of one, and utilized three different analytical methods: High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Capilary Electrophoresis (CE) with UV detection, and Titration.

    Though all three methods have their place in the scientific community, Titration is the most commonly used method in the food industry when determining vitamin C (ascorbic acid) content. However, there is a critical detail within the Titration method many companies miss when testing raw cacao. The method of Titration is unable to differentiate the vitamin C (ascorbic acid) from the vitamin's analogs. The result is what is known as a "false positive."

    This is why, at Navitas Naturals, they use HPLC when testing raw cacao's vitamin C content. The HPLC method looks directly for vitamin C (ascorbic acid), and not just the analogs. Additionally, after sending samples of our products to another lab to test using the CE method, the reports returned consistent the HPLC results.

    Navitas Naturals have now also tested one of the largest raw cacao brands in the United States using the Titration and HPLC methods. And yet again the results confirm our previous conclusion that raw cacao has no vitamin C (ascorbic acid) present.

    Cacao is a tremendously beneficial superfood, containing a wide spectrum of minerals and phytonutrients. It is important to be clear however, vitamin C is not amongst these nutrients.

    Food of the Gods
    Cacao has long been enjoyed for its healthful and invigorating properties in Mexican, Central, and South American cultures. In fact, Mayan civilizations associated cacao with the food that their gods chose to consume and thrive upon. So impressed were the Mayans with cacao's taste (and its ability to promote energy), that cacao paste was frequently used in sacred rituals, with an annual festival held devoted entirely to honoring the "cacao god." Today, we continue to celebrate the bean of the cacao plant as the nutritional and flavorful source for all chocolate and cocoa products.

    The Power of Cacao
    Cacao contains a naturally rich supply of antioxidants, and is also an excellent source of dietary fiber. In addition, cacao is known to be one of the highest dietary sources of magnesium, contains an impressively high iron content, and also possesses many other essential minerals in significant quantities.

    For the Love of Chocolate
    Ask most people to think about chocolate, and watch a smile instantly appear. Being the ingredient that all chocolate is made from, raw cacao can take commercialized "chocolate" to a whole new level through the alchemy of homemade chocolate confections. Great for both the true chocolateer and health seeker alike, try raw cacao paired with sweet foods of any kind (including raw nectars and syrups, dried fruit, or as a special addition to a dessert recipe) and experience cacao's beloved chocolate intensity instantly come to life.

    Navitas Naturals' mission is to provide premium organic power foods that increase energy and enhance health. Navitas Natural products are of the highest quality, sourced directly from farmers, cultivated sustainably and in accordance with fair trade practices.

    Suggested Use

    To get desired health enhancement it is recommended to consume 1 oz. (3 tbsp) or more of cacao powder per day. Navitas Naturals cacao powder is easy to use blended with smoothies, coffee, tea, desserts, sprinkled on fruit, or to make the best hot or cold chocolate drink.

    Chef’s Notes:

    • Cacao is naturally unsweetened; mix with your sweetener of choice and enjoy in place of chocolate.
    • Substitute Navitas Naturals raw cacao powder 1:1 for cocoa or chocolate powder in recipes.

      This cacao powder is an organic raised chocolate nut; that upon the first smell and taste of it allows you and every fiber and cell of your being to travel back thru time and enjoy what the Mayan culture enjoyed hundreds of years in the past. This cacao powder is a very powerful product. Just my first use of it I could tell that this powder had no ingredients added to it at all. The powder is extremely fine. Finding any product raised with very little human intervention or added ingredients is rare. I ordered two and I am pleased that I did.

      The quality of this product is excellent....I just didn't like the taste of raw cacao...I much prefer the taste of 100% unprocessed unsweetend coco powder ... the beans need to be roasted for me to help bring more of the chocolate flavor out :) But this is just my personal taste preference...you may like the raw cacao..the Navitas product itself is of high quality!
