Fermented Cacao Powder | Organic | Raw
Wondering where to buy cacao powder that’s high-quality? Try Wildly Organic’s delicious raw cacao powder!
We make our cacao powder from non-GMO, USDA-certified organic cacao. Our cacao beans come from local farmers in the Dominican Republic, where they naturally ferment them in banana leaves for three to five days. They cultivate cacao plants using eco-friendly, sustainable methods and have been doing so for generations.
Our product represents the finest in sustainably sourced, all-natural, fermented cacao. We use Forastero, Trinitario, and Criollo varieties of cacao for our organic raw cacao powder, which is hand-picked by the Wildly Organic team in the U.S.

We’re thrilled to state that our fermented raw cacao powder is certified by Fairtrade America. At Wildly Organic, we aim to deliver premium nutrition while doing our part to even out global trade inequalities by paying fair prices to the farmers who cultivate cacao for our products.
What Is Fermented Cacao?
The cacao plant (Theobroma cacao) is the source of all cacao products. The cacao bean yields the powder that chocolate is made from. In its raw state, cacao contains more antioxidant flavonoids than green tea, red wine, and blueberries. Our organic raw cacao powder is high in fiber and a great source of protein and iron in your diet.
