Product Description
We are thrilled to announce that our Fermented Cacao Powder is now Fair Trade Certified through Fair Trade America. We want to make sure that we are doing our part to even out global trade inequalities by paying fair prices.

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. The farmers who cultivate the beans that it's made from grow the crops on their own land using the same sustainable methods that have been used for generations. These cacao beans are of the Forastero, Trinitario and Criollo varieties, grown in the Dominican Republic. They are USDA certified organic 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.

This raw cacao powder has antioxidant activity as exhibited by an ORAC score of 1086 μmol TE/g. Raw Cacao Laboratory Testing Results

Buy it

Do it now and you won't regret it. Okay you don't like a superfood chocolate or wait.. You do Get a BIGGER PORTION!!


High quality

This is a quality product. I like that they assay and publish the heavy metal content. While there is a lot of discussion about Cd, it's actually Pb that is probably more important, and their product has low levels. Rich flavor, reasonable price . . . try some!



It took me several months to figure out which cacao powder I wanted to buy online and after reading review after review I finally read something on another brand that caught my attention. Someone (on Amazon) asked if their powder was truly raw and another user answered by saying that most cacao powders on the market that claim to be raw aren't unless they were fermented. So I looked up fermented cacao and one of the first brands to pop up was Wilderness Family Naturals. After a quick inspection of the product's values (organic, raw, non-gmo, etc.) and the location from which the powder was sourced (DR as oppose to Peru where most cacao powders come from and are almost always accompanied with a California Prop 65 warning) I was pretty much sold. Now I don't have a lot of experience with cacao powders other then the the Nesquik ones of my youth (haha) but when I opened my bag upon arrival I was met with the most wonderful coco scent I had ever smelled and I had to make banana nice cream right then and there. On top of being insanely delicious I'm comforted knowing that I am truly reaping the benefits of a raw cocao product so 5 stars/two thumbs up/etc. etc.


Excellent product

I have been drinking two tablespoons in a glass of water for breakfast, along with some stevia for sweetener. I love it. The smell alone is almost enough to satisfy my craving for sweet and/or chocolate. I also think it has reduced my appetite for other sweets/chocolate, which has been helpful.

Raw Cacos Powder

A few months ago I began adding raw cacao to my husband's and my diet. We consume some daily and it was becoming expensive. I'm thrilled to have found Wilderness Family Naturals! Their raw cacao powder is excellent. It is a high quality powder and tastes simply delicious. The ability to purchase raw cacao powder in bulk quantity, at such an affordable price, will make it much easier to continue using this health-promoting product. And let me add that Wilderness Family Naturals has AWESOME customer service! Thank you Wilderness Family!
