CACAO POWDER (Ecuador), BULK 10 LBS, Certified Organic


Product Description



10.00 LBS


Calculated at checkout

Our cacao powder originates from hand picked Ecuadorian Arriba criollo cacao pods. The beans are hand selected, fermented in specialized huts for approx. 3-4 days, sun-dried to perfection, crushed and winnowed (the skins removed). These nibs are ground in a granite melange and naturally liquefy (cacao beans are naturally high in fat containing approx. 45-60%). The liquefied cacao mass is transferred to a mechanical press where the cacao butter is removed. The remaining mass ('cake') is ground into a fine powder and packaged for your enjoyment. Our cacao does not go through a "Dutch" process nor alkalized in any way. 

Our supplier sources fully mature ripe pods from trees grown in mineral rich volcanic soil. These trees are not irrigated from potentially contaminated rivers and streams. Our supplier works directly with the farmers (aka direct trade) and it is our goal to ensure that everyone along the supply chain is well taken care of. Happy workers = happy food= happy people. It is also our goal to provide great tasting, pure & the highest quality CACAO possible. We regularly lab test our products to ensure they meet specifications and the high standards our customers have come to expect. 

GY CACAO has a deep, powerful, raw chocolate flavour. Contrary to popular opinion, cacao contains very little caffeine. It has been clinically demonstrated that cacao does not elevate blood sugar in the same way as a food or beverage containing caffeine would. Instead, GY CACAO helps to create an overall state of bliss :). And to take it next level, our cacao is low temperature processed from start to finish!

Tidbits to note about Cacao:

  • Our CACAO may be naturally mood boosting and heart re-connecting.
  • Our CACAO may be an amazing weight loss food, natural energy enhancer and aphrodisiac.
  • Little to no caffeine naturally present.
  • CACAO may be the number one source of magnesium of any food on the planet.

Ingredients: Cacao powder (made from non roasted Ecuadorian Arriba criollo cacao beans).

  1. Satisfied!

    Posted by Joe on 4th Apr 2017

    From the moment I submit my order to mixing in the last amount of cacao I am completely satisfied. No hassles in ordering or shipping and the product is great! I would recommend it.

  2. THE BEST!

    Posted by Angela on 20th Dec 2016

    We love this Cacao powder! It makes amazing smoothies, cakes, cookies and hot chocolate, oh my!!!! This is our families favourite!

  3. Real Cacao, Great Taste!!!

    Posted by Aris Klados on 23rd Oct 2016

    This product has a great taste and great nutritional value. I searched a lot to find a true cacao product, certified organic without being Dutch processed. 10 lbs is a huge quantity for two people but it gives us ideas to use it more often in a variety of beverages, desserts or even foods. It is delicious and it's been a big upgrade for our baking needs!
    We are happy for this purchase and we definitely suggest this product!!

  4. A lot of CACAO!

    Posted by Joe on 19th Jul 2016

    If you use a lot of Cacao buying in bulk makes sense. I had no problems at all with my order. I would purchase from them again! Cheers!

  5. Always the Best!

    Posted by Lisa on 9th May 2016

    I eat a lot of cacao and also use it when making body products. I sought out bulk, the best sourced, a local company, and best price, this is the only option that hit all the marks. Being a big fan of their chocolate bars I knew I could trust the quality of the produtc... and the delivery was prompt and had a sweet personal message on the box :)

  6. Review part 2

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Apr 2016

    In addition to our previous review noting the health issues experienced when consuming this product (ie jitters/palpitations/etc.), it's probably relevant to note that, although GY's website says "All GY products have a two year best before date," our 10lbs cacao bag had barely 1 year to go when we got it... We were really, really disappointed to see this, especially given that this is in bulk and we expected a minimum of 2 years shelf life. Very misleading... something important to bare in mind if you're thinking of buying bulk..

  7. Great taste but...

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Apr 2016

    Great tasting and packs a punch, but definitely "jitter"/palpitation inducing. I'd recommend, but if you're at all sensitive to caffeine-like substances, avoid. Bought this because we really like all the Giddy Yoyo products we've tried (including their chocolates) and it promised to be a great nutrient-dense cacao powder since it's raw and minimally processed, but apparently it's so dense that we won't be able to consume it without really bad health side-effects. Wish we'd tried a smaller size instead of trusting and buying bulk... now we're stuck with 10lbs of cacao powder that makes us feel bad, even in really small amounts. If you're not sensitive, then you might really like this powder's distinctive flavour (I know we did), but please warn your sensitive friends before feeding them desserts made with this product.

  8. You gotta get this!

    Posted by Phyllis on 18th Mar 2016

    If you like fantastic organic healthy cacao, and at the best price possible, this is the way to buy. Couple friends and I shared it.

  9. Best quality and great price

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Mar 2016

    I have purchased 3 or 4 of these 10 lb. bags so far, and the quality is the best I've found. I always receive it in two days right to my door, and the price is better than if I buy by the pound at the store. Giddy Yoyo provides a great product and top level service. Thank you so much.

  10. Best cacao powder

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Mar 2016

    I love this raw cacao powder and so glad I could get it in bulk!
