What is Raw Cacao Powder.
Cacao Powder is small pieces of crushed cacao beans that have a bitter, chocolatey flavor. They are made from the beans of the cacao tree. Cacao beans are dried after harvesting, then fermented and cracked to produce small, dark bits or cacao Powder. Unroasted cacao Powder is called raw cacao Powder. (Roasting is for choloate production. It helps separate the outer husk from the inner bean and makes cracking and winnowing easier. It also sterilizes the product, and enhances the flavour but reduces the antioxidant benefits).
The rich, raw chocolatey Powder however, are loaded with nutrients and powerful plant compounds that have been shown to benefit health in several ways.
Cacao is naturally low in sugar. It has a strong slightly bitter chocolaty taste and goes well as an additive to many foods including smoothies and Acai bowl.
High Antioxidant Benefits of Cacao
Raw, Raw Cacao Powder is full of flavonoids, which act as natural antioxidants. Antioxidants protect us from ageing and disease caused by free radicals. Raw Cacao Powder contains up to four times the antioxidants of traditional cocoa powder (roasted version), and has the highest antioxidant value of all natural food products. Raw Cacao is very powerful on the central nervous system and over-indulging can interfere with calcium retention. So, health professionals recommend not to eat more than 40 grams (five heaped teaspoons) of raw cacao a day, so enjoy it in moderation.

How To use Boost Nutrients Raw Cacao Powder.
Raw Cacao Powder have a strong and slightly bitter taste so its not easy to enjoy it on its own. We believe its best to regularly consume it as an ingredient in other products that cover its taste. One sure and simple way is to sprinkle it into a smoothie. Either a smoothie drink or a smoothie bowl. It also goes very well in an Acai bowl or granola bowl breakfast.
Some research says that dairy products inhibit the absorption of antioxidants from raw cacao. So if youre making a cacao smoothie youre better off using a non-dairy milk, like almond milk or coconut milk in order to gain all of the antioxidant benefits.
Gluten Free Status.
There is no gluten in the cacao pods from which Raw Cacao Powder is derived. So, unless a gluten containing ingredient is added (or contamination occurs from packing equpment also used for gluten containing products), Raw Cacao Powder is gluten-free and safe for celiacs to use in baking and for other food preparation.
Boost Nutrient’s Raw Cacao Powder have a long shelf life if correctly stored. They are packed in resealable bags. We recommend to store all unopened packs in a cool dry place. After opening it is best to push the air out of the packet before re-sealing the bag cafefully with its zip lock. Never leave bags opened as the ingredients can absorb moisture from the air.
