At Wildly Organic, we make our cacao powder from non-GMO, USDA Certified Organic cacao. We source our cacao beans from local farmers in the Dominican Republic, where they naturally ferment them in banana leaves for three to five days. They cultivate the 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 powder, which is hand-packed by the Wildly Organic team in the U.S.

This fermented cacao powder arrives ready-to-use in 8 ounce and 16 ounce (updated Wildly Organic branding) and 5 pound (silver Wilderness Family Natural branded) vapor-barrier, resealable packaging to maintain freshness. 50 pounds available in a paper bag, wrapped in a plastic bag and boxed. Smaller packaging may include an oxygen absorber.

Fair-Trade Certified Cacao Powder

We’re thrilled to state that our fermented 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 the 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 raw cacao powder is high in fiber and a great source of protein and iron in your diet.



To ensure the powder remains “raw,” we maintain the temperature in our extraction process at around 104° F and never let it exceed 120° F (it’s not uncommon for many cocoa powders to be processed at temperatures as high as 300° F!). A high-accuracy thermometer monitors the whole process. We cold-grind the dry, “cake-like'' extract and fine-mill it so that the finished product contains only the finest raw cacao particles.

Each batch of our fermented organic cacao powder is lab-tested for antioxidant activity (as represented by an ORAC score of 1086 μmol TE/g), so as to ensure the safety and purity of the product.

Fermented Cacao Powder

It is great. I have bought this cacao powder for years, mainly for my morning smoothie. I am not really a fan of chocolate bars (yeah, weird), too much sugar I guess. However I make chocolate pies and other desserts for family or friends whenever they come over.

Best flavor cacao

I had found this brand some years ago, and when I wasn't able to re-order the large 5-lb bag from Amazon, I tried a few other brands for the simplicity of ordering through there. I realized I was using more cacao in my smoothies trying to achieve the deep rich flavor I was used to, but not getting from other brands. I ordered again, this time from the source, and I can definitely taste the difference. It is a fully satisfying cacao for those that are true lovers of cacao. I also appreciate the gentle fermented process that I believe adds to the flavor and health giving quality of this cacao. So grateful!

Flavor Bitter

This cocoa powder had a bit of a woody flavor to it.

Thank you taking the time to review. Cacao is a very different product than cocoa, and yes, in comparison to cocoa powder, will be bitter. Keep in mind that the less processed, the higher the nutritional value. We hope that you can make use of the powder, and that you'll grow to love this minimally processed, organic product.
