Raw Cacao Powder


Wilderness Family Naturals



Raw Cacao Powder - From Peru & Ecuador

ORGANIC

Sales of Cacao and Chocolate to the United States escalate every year... Cacao is the bean that chocolate is made from. In its raw state, it contains more antioxidant flavonoids than red wine, green tea and blueberries. Our raw cacao is high in fiber and vitamin C and a good source of iron and protein!

WFN cacao powder is
Certified Organic and Raw . Our premium Cacao Beans come directly from the farmers who cultivate them. These farmers grow their crops on their own land, using the same sustainable methods that have been used for generations. These cacao beans are guaranteed to be free of heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides. They are USDA Certified Organic . They are imported from Peru and Ecuador and packed by Wilderness Family Naturals in the USA.

The
Cacao Powder is created by cold-pressing raw, Organic Cacao Beans into a pressed cake separating the oil from the protein and fiber. The temperature is never allowed to exceed 120° F and is usually 104° F (all other cocoa powders are exposed to temperatures as high as 300° F!). A high-accuracy thermometer monitors the process. The remaining dry 'cake-like' material is then cold-ground and fine-milled so that only the finest raw cacao particles become the finished product.

More On Cacao Powder

When it comes to antioxidants , some are water-soluble and other antioxidants are fat-soluble.  In the case of raw cacao , the vast majority of its antioxidants are water-soluble.  By removing the fat in the cacao bean, you then have a product where the ORAC scores almost double.  The result is a concentrating of the antioxidants!

High heat during roasting and pressing of cacao greatly diminish its antioxidant content. Bitter chocolate loses seven eighths of the antioxidants. Bitter chocolate comes from roasted beans exposed to high temperatures, and it also contains a small amount of sugar.  In our case, because of our special
raw process , all of the antioxidants and other nutrients, are maintained.

Directions

This delicious, natural , organic cacao powder is easy to use when blended with smoothies, coffee, tea, coconut milk, nut butters, coconut spread, desserts etc.  It is nice sprinkled on fruit and makes the best hot or cold chocolate drinks.  When added to coconut oil with a little agave it makes a delicious chocolate "shell" for ice cream.  When added to raw agave it makes a delicious chocolate syrup.  There are so many wonderful treats that can be made with raw cacao powder it will make your mouth water just ordering!

About Wilderness Family Naturals

 

Wilderness Family Naturals is here to serve you from the pristine wilderness of Northeastern Minnesota.  We are located on the North Shore of Lake Superior at the edge of the Superior National Forrest, in an untouched, unpolluted land teaming with wolves, moose, beaver and bald eagles.  This area of the United States has some of the purest water and freshest air in the entire country and the soil here has never been depleted by farming or contaminated by industry.  For over 20 years Ken and Annette have purposed to live clean healthy lives, believing that a diet with nutrient dense foods is key.

Initially, Wilderness Family Naturals began in the home of Ken and Annette Fischer, 20 miles from phone lines, electric lines, septic systems, indoor plumbing or plowed roads.  In 2000, from the peace and quiet of the wilderness and with the help of their children, they began supplying healthy, nutrient dense foods over the internet.  For the first 3 years WFN, which began as a simple family business, grew substantially as they worked to bless people with healthy foods and supplements.

Soon they were forced to move to a small town about 20 miles away where they could have UPS and US mail service and the ability to hire employees.  Today, Wilderness Family Naturals is in the neighboring town of Silver Bay, MN and employs close to 30 people.  It is still run by Ken and Annette Fischer; however, many wonderful people from the surrounding community come each day to help serve you.

Wilderness Family Naturals was created to help anyone who is looking for high quality, healthy food.
