GY cacao paste is made from the highly prized Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional bean (aka cacao Arriba, or cacao Nacional). Arriba is a fine flavoured bean characterized by fruity and floral notes, and unique to Ecuador. Our paste is certified organic, Rainforest Alliance certified, common allergen-free, non GMO, naturally vegan and delicious!

The beans are hand-selected, fermented and dried to perfection. The skins are removed from the dried bean (aka winnowed) then ground into a liquid, tempered, cooled into a solid form and kibbled for ease of use. Our cacao is lab tested, clean and pure, never “Dutched” nor treated with toxic chemicals. GY cacao paste is low temperature processed from start to finish to maximize quality and taste while maintaining nutritional integrity.

Our farmers harvest fully mature ripened pods from trees grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. The plantation from which we source is known for their high quality low cadmium fine flavour cacao. Our supplier has developed and implemented the Native Cacao Farming Initiative, which is an ongoing free education and training program for the cacao harvesters and processors. It is important to us that the Ecuadorians responsible for supplying us our unique cacao are well taken care of; we believe in people over profits. We lab test each lot of raw materials to ensure our high standards are met or exceeded.

  • Cacao may be naturally mood boosting.
  • Cacao may be a natural energy enhancer, aphrodisiac and natural appetite suppressant.

  • So much more...

Food safety is of primary importance and we are happy to share with you that our Ecuadorian partner holds the following certifications; Organic, UTZ, Rainforest Alliance, Kosher, Halal, Non-GMO, FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certified, ISO 9001:2015, GMP, BRC Certified.  Further steps have been taken to ensure the cacao is non-irradiated and common allergen-free.

Suggested use:  GY cacao paste is ideal for making and adding to hot beverages (hot cocoa, coffee, chaga tea, elixirs.) smoothies, trail mix, desserts and other chocolate creations. Try making your own dark chocolate bar, truffles or bark (+nuts, seeds & dried fruit). Cacao paste is every similar to baking chocolate- it melts like chocolate and is 100% cacao so do not expect it to taste sweet (:

    This is the BEST cacao paste I've ever had!! I think the secret (sshh), is the vanilla; making this cacao paste SMOOTH tasting! I live in the US (Albany, NY), and it is worth every penny, to order this from Canada (so glad you ship to the states!). I am addicted; send me more, more, more!

    This produce is simply excellent, and a bag lasts me quite a while. I'm dipping it in honey if I want some sugar, and in nut butter if I don't want the sugar. It doest the trick for me, I get my theobroma and magnesium fix!

    Cacao paste perfection

    Published by Faith on 13th Mar 2016

    I am sensitive to molds and would have reactions to most chocolates. When researching mold free chocolates, I found Giddy Yo Yo. I ordered the paste, butter and powder. I could smell the wonderful chocolately scent befor I even opened the bags. I have made my own chocolates using all of the ingredients and it is heavenly! And the best part is I don't get the jittery, yucky side effects of consuming mycotoxins. Woohoo! Thanks Giddy Yo Yo! :)
