Cacao Bread Recipe - Freedom Super Foods Pure Raw Organic Cacao Powder - Review


I received Freedom Super Foods Pure Raw Cacao Powder in exchange for an honest review.


"Cacao"? - is that just a misspelling of "cocoa"? In a way it could be, but it really isn't.   What is the difference between cacao and cocoa?  Even though they both come from the same bean, their differences are more than just the spelling.


Cacao (pronounced: kuh-KOW) is the purest and rawest form of a cocoa bean.  Cacao is never roasted.  The beans are cold-pressed to remove the cocoa butter or fat from the beans.  Cacao powder does look almost exactly the same as cocoa powder, but none of the nutrients, antioxidants, and enzymes have been cooked out, thus lowering the overall nutrition of the cocoa bean.


When looking for a cacao powder to buy, buy one that is pure, natural, raw, unsweetened cacao which is certified organic/kosher, gluten free, vegan, and non-GMO.  I recently found just the right cacao powder which is all that it promises to be: Freedom Super Foods Pure Raw Certified Organic Cacao Powder.



Freedom Super Foods Pure Raw Certified Organic Cacao Powder is made from Criollo and Trinitario organic bean varieties harvested in the Dominican Republic.  Their natural process means that their cacao is very low in calories and fat.  Because of the cold process of the beans, it contains high levels of antioxidants, fiber, enzyme, essential nutrients and minerals including; magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, phosphorus and zinc.  It is free of the 8 major allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shelfish, soy, and wheat.


Being rich in nutrients, minerals and flavonoids, Freedom Super Foods cacao powder is highly alkalizing. As a result many people have reported getting excellent sleep and energy. Marvel as your chocolate cravings disappear. Some people have even noticed their appetite has decreased significantly as well.


The aroma is heavenly and the texture is smooth, rich and dark for all of your recipes.  You will notice a difference in how your chocolate treats will taste.  Great in raw treats, baked treats, mocha's, smoothies, chocolate cakes and everything in between.


We made this delightful Cacao Quick Bread using the Freedom Super Foods Pure Raw Certified Organic Cacao Powder.  It was easy - we just substituted cacao powder for the cocoa powder.  This one we made is moist and lush, and I have included the recipe for you.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
