    What’s the difference between raw cacao powder and regular/traditional cocoa powder?

    Raw cacao powder specifically refers to the least processed form of cocoa powder that has not been subjected to high heat processing – it is made from unroasted cocoa beans (unlike regular cocoa powder which is made from roasted cocoa beans at high temperatures) and has only been lightly fermented to bring out the cocoa flavor, increase nutrient availability and reduce phytic acid content. Organic raw cacao powder, without heat or chemical treatment, has much higher levels of antioxidants (procynanidins, resveratrol, polyphenols, among others) than regular/traditional cocoa powder or processed chocolates. In short, the closer the chocolate is to its original raw state, the better it is for you.
