While cacao refers to cacao beans that have not been roasted, what is called cocoa is made of beans have been roasted. Cacao is thought to be the highest source of antioxidants of all foods and the highest source of magnesium of all foods. Cacao powder contains more fibre and calories than cocoa powder since more of the nutrients from the whole bean are still intact. Taste wise, Cacao is more bitter than cocoa, although both still taste chocolatey. Found a healthy and easy recipe online for homemade dark chocolate: 1/2 cup Cacao power 1/2 cup Coconut oil (California Gold Nutrition, SUPERFOODS - Cold Pressed Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil) 3 tablespoons Honey ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional) Butter Pink Himalayan Salt any nuts/lemon zest/orange zest etc. Due to Singapore's warmer climate, the coconut oil arrives in liquid form so I just mix in the ingredients without cooking/heating. Result: Amazing! Ready to eat immediately.

I heard good comments on this product so I think of give it a try. The taste is very rich and unsweetened which is good for diet. And it’s gluten free too! Add this to Greek yogurt to make my own “chocolate ice cream” when I am craving for sweet tooth during diet. Overall, this is a good superfood.

I’ve used it for different places, all work out very well. I added it into instant coffee ( UCC or Kirkland), it upgraded the plain black coffee to another flavored drink. The powder is fine, it diluted easily with gentle stirring. I used it to make chocolate cookies and brownies too , the aromatic baking process and results were always exciting. Every time I opened the package, the good smell made me cheerful.:)

Quality is superb, package is thick resealable aluminum. Expiry date is Dec next year. Great ingredient for mix in baking and smoothies or fresh milk. Been looking for this as it has benefits for health improvement. I am amazed my orders reached as far as the Philippines, and with free shipping, with minimum order.

Good quality organic cacao powder. It’s organic, gluten-free, and cold-pressed. Perfect for me. I love this rich chocolaty flavor. It goes well with my morning oatmeal and protein smoothie. It’s super fine and easy to dissolved. I’m also expecting its nutritions like magnesium, iron and antioxidants. I’ll keep using this product for my health.

I've purchased this product to boost my iron. I have been adding it to smoothies with banana and avocado and it is delicious. I've even been giving these smoothies to my young son who hates avocado but he can't tell its in there. Great way to get some nutrients into kids as well as boost your own iron, magnesium and antioxidants.

The cacao powder tastes simply amazing, it's organic and cold-pressed, mixes well with almost everything... I'm simply hooked on it! I use it in many ways, from oatmeal to hot chocolate, from pancakes to brownies, from microwave mug cakes to simply mixing it with yogurt or pumpkin puree. Amazing superfood. Best quality organic cacao ever!

I have tried many brands of organic cacao powder. My favorite is Navitas organic keto cacao, and I buy it when it’s on sale. What I like the most about California Gold brand organic cacao powder is the similarity in the depth of flavor comparing it with Navitas organic keto cacao powder. The difference is California Gold powder does not have the cacao fat Navitas keto cacao does otherwise depth of flavor is very similar. Hence, I will continue to stick with California Gold brand organic cacao powder when Navitas organic keto cacao is not on sale.

Great Organic Cacao Powder! This product contains naturally occurring caffeine, theobromine and polyphenol flavanols. The powder dissolves easily with gentle stirring, but it is easier to use a blender. I use cocoa to make chocolate chip cookies and cakes, and I also make hot chocolate and milk and nut cocktails. Me and my children really like cocoa. I think you will also like it.
