Turning Raw Cacao Beans into Cacao Powder:
Raw cacao nibs are cold-pressed, separating the oil, while leaving the active nutrients. The remainder is a dry cacao that is then cold-ground, fine-milled, and sifted, leaving the finished product - the most vibrant, organic Cacao Powder available! No chemicals, hexane or solvents are ever used. All the delicate minerals, enzymes, magical properties and nutrients are in tact!
-> Simply pair with any sweetener (we LOVE Coconut Crystals, Coconut Nectar or Raw Honey) or sweet food and devour!

To Err on the side of Caution:
Raw Cacao contains Theobromine. Theobromine is a very mild stimulant that is primarily responsible for the balanced and natural energizing effects of Cacao in it's pure form. Cacao also contains a very low amount of caffeine, much much less than found in coffee and tea, but traces of caffeine compounds none the less. In other words, only take late at night if your looking to high five the ceiling into the early hours.
