Satisfy chocolate cravings with a healthier option Healthworks Cacao Powder. Our Cacao is pure, organic, and tasty too! Packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, cacao powder has an earthy bitter-toned taste - think dark chocolate but healthier.
We source our Cacao Powder from small, organic farms in Peru, where the cacao beans are hand harvested, dried, and carefully milled into fine powder. This process retains the cacao's authentic, rich flavor and high nutritional value.
Try our cacao powder in smoothies, granola bars, baked goods (like brownies and fudge), sprinkled on fruit, or in desserts (like pudding and ice cream).
Question: What is the difference between Cacao Powder and Cocoa Powder?
Answer: Cacao Powder and Cocoa powder are not the same thing, but you can substitute cacao for cocoa. Some differences between Cacao Powder and Cocoa Powder are that Cacao Powder does not contain the additives that are often in cocoa such as sugars, milk fat, hydrogenated oils and artificial flavorings. Cacao Powder is high in antioxidants and contains essential vitamins and minerals, while Cocoa Powder is stripped of the nutrients because it is highly processed. Cacao Powder is a healthy alternative to using cocoa powder.
Question: Is your Cacao Powder fermented?
Answer: Yes, our cacao beans go through a process of natural fermentation after they are picked. It is a natural process that gives the beans their chocolaty taste.
Question: Can Cacao Powder be eaten raw or cooked?
Answer: Yes, the powder can be used raw and in fact, you get more benefits not heating/cooking the cacao powder as it is full of enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients that are carefully preserved in the low temperature processing.
