Giddy Yo best-seller, we are happy to offer our newly sourced organic Ecuadorian Cacao Powder!

Our cacao powder is made from fermented, lightly-roasted fine flavour Ecuadorian Arriba criollo non-hybrid cacao. The beans are hand-selected, fermented and dried to perfection. The skins are removed from the cacao bean prior to grinding. After grinding, 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 does not go through a “Dutch” process nor alkalized in any way. Giddy Yo Cacao Powder has a deep, powerful, chocolate flavour characterized by its blend of earthy and nutty notes, is low temperature processed from start to finish to maximize quality and taste while maintaining nutritional integrity.

Our Ecuadorian partner harvests fully mature ripened pods from trees grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. They work directly with farmers (aka direct trade) and 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 creating this amazing food are well taken care of, and it is also our goal to source clean, pure, nutritious cacao of the highest quality possible. We lab test each lot of raw materials to ensure the high standards our customers have come to expect are met or exceeded.

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.

Ingredients: Cacao powder (made from lightly roasted Ecuadorian cacao beans).

  10. Superfood for a super you!

    Posted by kate on 26th Apr 2018

    Reminds me of the shamanic cacao rituals, where the cacao would both energize the body and clarify the spirit, making it perfect for both a little kick whenever and a nice way to induce sweet dreams at night. Really, the mixture of the raw elements perfectly harvested and preserved, the whole way of thinking of the company and the people involved, all coming so well together. So many possibilities with this one! Can be used to do the most complex of things as well as just as it is, in cacao water. The enhenced nutritive value and quality, the ethics behid it, it's texture and flavor, as well as it's aroma. Plus, it's actually the only powder I found that my body would react to the same way as with the Mayas products :) That tells me a lot! Superfood for a super you, really!
