Cacao, or Cocoa, is an evergreen tree, which grows naturally in tropical climates around the world. Sevenhills Wholefoods source our beans from Peru, and only those of a premium variety. Cacao has for centuries been predominant to diets in its native areas, yet in recent times, has attracted attention for its nutritionally rich profile, and health benefits associated with its antioxidant content. Cacao’s Vitamin C, K, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium all help to maintain healthy teeth, bones, muscles, nervous and immune systems, in addition to the product’s antioxidant content, which helps fight off ageing effects, by reducing oxidative-stress cell damage. Our premium, rich beans are ground into a fine, versatile powder, and conveniently added to diets by baking, mixing with food or even into smoothies.
100% Organic Cacao powder. No colours, binders, fillers or preservatives added. Certified organic by the Soil Association and registered by the Vegan society. This product does not contain any substances causing allergies (Directive 2007/68/EC) as ingredients or by possibility of cross-contamination.

Have use this in several recipes for making vegan chocolate.. Its quite strong so I found that I had to reduce the quantities in some recipes or it tended to make them bitter. Would buy this again. Think it is good value for money.

Tastes as "chocolately" as standard roasted cocoa bought from the supermarket. Delicious in hot milk (even my 5 year old loves it!) but we enjoyed a not too sweet cocoa beforehand. Haven't used it in cooking yet, but I imagine it will be at least as good as standard cocoa. And hopefully better for us. Excellent!

I've been having a nightly hot chocolate with this and also using it in puddings. Its bitter and gorgeous, and the health benefits are amazing compared to a sugary supermarket hot chocolate. Love it.
