A best-seller, GY cacao powder 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 cacao powder 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, then lightly roasted, crushed into nibs, the skins removed or 'winnowed' and ground into a liquid. The liquefied cacao mass is transferred to a mechanical press where the majority of cacao butter is removed. The remaining mass (‘cake’) is ground into a fine powder and packaged for your enjoyment. Our cacao is lab tested, clean and pure, is not “Dutch” processed nor alkalized in any way. Giddy Yo Cacao Powder 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 an ongoing free education and training program for the cacao harvesters and processors. It is important to us that the Ecuadorians responsible for supplying 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. 

Did you know?

  • Cacao may be naturally mood boosting.
  • Cacao may be a natural energy enhancer, aphrodisiac and natural appetite suppressant.
  • Cacao is a good source of magnesium and other plant derived nutrients.
  • 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: an ideal addition to smoothies & hot beverages (coffee, chaga tea, elixirs, hot chocolate etc.). Use in your cooking (great in chili) and baking (brownies, cakes, cookies, etc.), and various other desserts. You'll definitely want to try making your own dark chocolate by adding GY cacao butter to the powder, and sweeten with honey or maple syrup (or not)- it’s easier than you may think!

We'll leave you with this idea- create next level hot chocolate by adding our cacao powder to your milk of choice (our favourite is Cha's coconut milk), grating GY cacao butter and adding a sweetener of choice. To level up add GY maca and vanilla, GY medicinal mushroom extracts, herbs & spices of choice, maybe some mint essential oil, and voila, health in a mug!

    Excellent product...BUT...

    Published by Jason Robinson on 26th Jun 2022

    This is a top notch product. We really love it and actually the best cacao we have ever purchased. The only reason for the 4 stars is we bought 11 pounds which expires in 3 months. I realize you ned to rotate inventory but I was disappointed to be sent something that will expire before we can consume it all.

    we are a celiac family (very sensitive) and finding a safe, fairly sourced, canadian company for a cacao that truly tastes like rich chocolate was a dream. i appreciate that i can purchase in bulk direct from giddy yoyo at a considerably reduced cost than i was otherwise paying. it is financially challenging enough to have dietary needs in the family and having a treat now and again is so important to our emotional and, sometimes, social wellbeing that we are always so pleased when we can save up enough to indulge in some cacao. giddy yoyo is by far the best option for us.

    Great taste, our favourite cacao powder, highly recommended. If you use it everyday as we do, buying in bulk is a plus.
