Earth Circle Organics - Organic 100% Raw Balinese Cacao Powder - 16 oz. (454g)
Earth Circle Organics Organic 100% Raw Balinese Cacao Powder is truly raw cacao and sustainably sourced from the food forests of Bali, Indonesia. Their raw organic cacao is never heated above 118 ºF. Because it is never cooked, their cacao retains all of its powerful natural minerals and enzymes and soaring levels of antioxidants that often get lost in commercial chocolates.
Raw cacao has so many incredible health benefits!
- Cacao has one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of any food in the world.
- High levels of flavonols in cacao help the body to produce Nitric Oxide, which is essential for proper heart function.
- Cacao has a powerful boost of phenyl ethylamine (PEA) which has been known to enhance positive feelings, as well as promote focus and alertness.
- Cacao is one of the best sources of magnesium, which is said to support heart health and boost mental focus.
- Cacao has been used traditionally to keep blood healthy, with high levels of iron and manganese, essential for carrying oxygen throughout the body, and copper, believed to help to cleanse the blood.
- Cacao is also a great source of omega-6 fatty acids, essential for healthy cell walls and cell communication.
- Cacao is also a good source of Tryptophan, an essential amino acid which transforms into stress-protective neurotransmitters like serotonin and melatonin. This nutrient is often cooked out in conventional chocolates.
- Earth Circle Organics cacao is USDA Certified Organic, certified Kosher, and verified Raw!
After pressing and separating the oil, workers are left with a crumbly cacao ‘cake’ which is sifted to produce this exquisite cacao powder. With a smooth earthy flavor, their cacao powder makes an ideal ingredient in raw chocolate and smoothies. For the perfect cup of hot cocoa, mix in a large cup 2 teaspoons cacao powder, 2 teaspoons coconut palm sugar, and hot water. For an extra boost of nutrition and flavor add a pinch of Earth Circle Organics vanilla and a teaspoon of our maca powder.
