Cacao comes from the Theobroma Cacao Tree. The pods that grow on the Cacao Tree are the purest form of chocolate available. Connect Foods Organic Cacao Powder is simply a ground version of these pods. It is grown in Central and South America where it has been used for centuries as a Mayan Superfood to increase overall health and well-being. The Mayan Kings consumed Cacao to maintain their vitality. Cacao was held in such high regard that it was even used as a form of currency.

Cacao is easy to use. Simply add it to your favourite smoothie, mix with milk, sprinkle on your yoghurt or breakfast and add to your favourite raw slice. It is the perfect way to get your daily chocolate fix but stay healthy. For recipes and inspiration, download our free e-cookbook. Like any super food, we recommend not using it under heated conditions as this will affect the nutritional value.


With an ORAC Value of 95,500, Cacao is naturally rich in antioxidants containing up to 14 times more than red wine and 20 times more than green tea and blueberries. Antioxidants fight free radicals and assist in reducing inflammation.


Connect Foods Organic Cacao is a great source of magnesium. Magnesium is excellent for muscle repair after a work out and plays a vital role in heart health.
