Van Houten natural cocoa/cacao powder has a wonderful cocoa aroma and flavour. It’s a fantastic quality natural (non alkalised) cocoa powder from roasted cocoa beans, with a lower fat/cocoa butter content of 10-12%. Cocoa/cacao is rich in plant polyphenols. Polyphenols are a group of plant-based micronutrients and cacoa is classified as a flavonoid within the Polyphenols group. These flavonoids have antioxidant properties, in other words, they contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Cocoa/cacao also contains minerals such as magnesium, iron, potassium and zinc.

Note that this cocoa powder is made from roasted cocoa beans.  Cocoa and cacao mean the same thing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocoa_bean.  A cocoa bean is a cacao bean whether roasted or not. Raw food marketers unfortunately promote the idea that cocoa is roasted and processed while cacao is raw when there is actually no difference. To avoid confusion we use cacao and cocoa when referring to our cocoa powders, whether they are roasted or not (raw).

Suggested uses:

Our cocoa powder is great for homemade chocolate making, baking or mixing up in a warm drink or smoothie.
