Discovering the joys and wonders of raw chocolate over a decade ago, Detox Your World's Raw Cacao Powder was the first to be organically certified in the UK.
Over years of careful research and taste testing by the experts at Detox Your World, this Cacao Powder has been enjoyed by thousands since 2000 and continues to be UK's trusted and loved cacao powder.
Cacao Powder is a pure, unrefined, raw cacao product that unlike confectionary chocolate, contains zero sugar and milk. Thus it is suitable for those with dairy allergies.
With a tempting aroma, raw cacao powder contains vitamins, minerals, fibre and essential fatty acids. Anti-oxidant rich, it has a delightful, full rich chocolate flavour and our cacao powder has absolutely no chemicals, no hexane and no solvents.
What Is Cacao Powder?
This raw cacao powder is prepared from 100% certified organic Criollo beans, which have been carefully cleaned and dried at low temperatures. The Criollo is a superior variety of cacao bean that accounts for only 1% of the total world cacao production.
- The process of criollo cacao beans to raw cacao powder firstly starts by washing and drying the beans to make cacao nibs.
- The cacao nibs are then at a low tempeature, milled by a special machine (imagine a pestel and mortar but on a much larger scale!) to make cacao liquor. (Cacao liquor is like one big block delicious raw chocolate!)
- The cacao liquor is then taken to make either cacao butter or cacao powder. (Cacao Butter is created by extracting oil from the cacao liquor).
- When the cacao butter has been extracted from the cacao liquor, with what is left of the cacao liquor, it is milled again and cacao powder is created.
- Compare this process with cocoa or confectionary chocolate, near the start of the process, cacao beans would have been roasted at high temperatures and then have sugar and fats added to it. As well as the unwelcome added ingredients, the high heat at which it would have been roasted would also have reduced the antioxidants and other nutrients compared to raw cacao.

Chocolate with everything
Sally | 4/8/14I use this on my porridge every morning and have just started making raw chocolates that every one loves.
Dee Dee | 4/8/14This is my absolute favourite raw cacao powder. I've tried other brands in the past but this one is my favourite. I use it in smoothies, make raw chocolate with it and everyone loves my chocolate ice cream, made with just this powder, frozen bananas, dates to sweeten and a bit of vanilla essence in the Vitamix. Even non-raw friends and family prefer it to 'real' ice cream and can't believe it's so healthy. I LOVE this product. Super-nutrition and indulgent chocolate-y taste. Highly recommended!
