Cacao is one of nature’s most powerful superfoods. Unprocessed in its whole-food form, Cacao delivers an abundance of antioxidants and nutrients that positively impact brain and cardiovascular health. What’s more, Cacao also enhances the effectiveness of other minerals and nutrients in the body.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE CACAO
We all know chocolate has a positive impact on our soul—and for thousands of years, pure Cacao has been used to nourish the body, thanks to a rich variety of critical antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Navitas Organics Cacao comes from Peru, where tropical Cacao trees have grown for thousands of years. In fact, Cacao was touted as the Food of the Gods during the days of the Mayan Empire—and was even used as currency.
The majority of Cacao globally comes from a handful of species. Ours is from a rare species that is more complex in flavor and nutrition, and more difficult to harvest and handle. We carefully select our Cacao beans from small-scale organic Cacao farmers in the heart of Peru's forests—and then handle them with delicate care to preserve maximum nutritional value.
How to use Cacao Powder
Cacao Powder is made from pressing the nibs into a paste. This removes the fat, further concentrating the minerals and antioxidants, and deepening both the taste and color. Navitas Organics Cacao Powder is easy to use—simply swap 1:1 in any recipe that calls for baking cocoa, including baked treats, homemade chocolates and hot cocoa.
