Quick Tip:

Cacao vs. Cocoa – What’s the difference?

Raw cacao is superior to cocoa powder because it is made by cold-pressing un-roasted cocoa beans. It is an excellent source of essential fatty acids, fiber, magnesium, zinc, iron and calcium.

Cocoa powder is made from cocoa beans that have been roasted at high temperatures.

If you can’t find cacao, buy unprocessed, non-alkalized cocoa powder.
