Organic Cacao Powder
- Super Rich in Antioxidants
- Super Rich in Magnesium
- Increases Happy Neurotransmitters
- Tastes Delicious
- Organic Superfood
Our Premium Organic Cacao Powder originates from the Amazon rainforest of Satipo in Peru and is grown from an heirloom variety of unroasted Criollo Amazonico Cacao.
Cacao Powder is nutritionally dense and packed with goodness. In brief, here's why:
- Super High Antioxidant ORAC Score of 147,000
- 3 x The Antioxidants of Traditional Cocoa Powder
- 30 x The Antioxidants of Blueberries
- 34 x The Antioxidants of Goji Berries
- Super Rich Source of Magnesium
- Stimulates the Happy Neurotransmitters
- Rich in Vitamins and Minerals
With an ORAC score of 147,000 our Organic Cacao is super rich in antioxidants and is famous for its fine aroma and distinctive flavour by locals who name it the “Queen of Cacao”.
It has twice the amount of potent antioxidants than traditional cocoa powder, 30 times more than blueberries and 34 times more than found in Goji berries.
Our Organic Cacao is rich in zinc, omega 3, aminos, beta carotene, calcium, chromium, iron, copper, sulphur, potassium and is one of the richest sources of magnesium in the world, which happens to be the most deficient mineral in western civilisation. Magnesium aids in muscle relaxation, stress relief, having a healthy heart and a functioning brain.
Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine (PEA), four well-studied neurotransmitters, which are associated with feelings of well being. Both PEA and Anandamide (the bliss chemical) are found in abundance in the brains of happy people.
We have all experienced the positive feelings associated with eating chocolate, now we have access to pure raw unadalterated chocolate in the form of organic raw cacao.
Now you can have your chocolate and consume it however you want! It's a perfect addition to any shake/smoothie and tastes awesome when you use it to make your own healthy chocolate.
Available in 500g packs and bulk buy discounts. 500g can flavour up to 5kg of most of our Protein Powders. And if you want it to taste sweet, don't forget to add one of our Organic Sweeteners. However if you would prefer your cacao protein powder pre-made try our NZ WPI.

Excellent ProductBy: Gerald Murray on 30 April 2022Is a great addition to yoghurts or drinks with a very natural flavour. Sourced from Peru which gives it credibility as a pure product. Use it every morning
Organic cacaoBy: jason callcott on 12 June 2021I use this product in all my shakes tastes great , full of antioxidants! Love it
Great TasteBy: Hedy Thurzo on 16 November 2019I love the PW Raw Cacao Powder. I use it in smoothies, my muesli mix, health bars, hot drinks and I'll soon use it my in protein balls that I'm excited to be making soon. Thank you for your beautiful products.
Best Cacao powder ever!By: Romi S on 30 July 2019Best Cacao powder ever! Excellent quality. This combined with a touch of the Organic Stevia extract is just awesome. Tastes far better than the other brands of Cacao that I have tried. Great work Professional Whey!
AwesomeBy: DONALD HEALY on 26 May 2017Love my chocolate
Great productBy: Matt Miller on 13 April 2016I have bought many different brands of cacao powder, this one is by far the best tasting and mixes heaps easier than most others. Great flavouring for the NZ WPI
Best Organic FlavouringBy: Matthew Lam on 30 November 2015I've been buying their WPC for ages, but after a few years i decided to stop flavouring with the sugary flavours i had been using. So i hesitantly decided to give this cacao a shot, i ordered one bag just to try with stevia extract. That was more than a year ago. I'm hooked, even with no added sugar my shakes taste awesome with WPC and the right amount of stevia. Yum!
My fave cacaoBy: Melissa Fato on 12 October 2015By far the richest and flavoursome cacao I've tried. I use it in everything from my protein shakes, smoothies to cakes and sweets and it's great knowing the antioxidant hit you're getting from it.
GreatBy: Danny on 27 August 2015I was put on to Organic Cocao by my nutritionist due to early onset of arthritis and using other "natural" products that I had been put into by various others. Since adding it to my shakes I've had no need to use the other products which surprised me. Quality product definitely worth a try.
My FavouriteBy: Kelie Guthrie on 9 November 2014This works out so much cheaper than buying a tiny bag from the health food section! I use in my smoothies, hot chocolate and baking.
Great value and tasteBy: Rufina Kim on 5 May 2014I bought the cocoa to flavour my protein concoctions and add to my coffee and for the antioxidant boost. I was worried organic cacao wouldn't taste as good as normal cocoa but I was wrong! It mixes easily into my coffee and WPI without a shaker. Highly recommend! Super fast delivery too.
Moving FreeBy: Elizabeth Telfer on 26 April 2014I have tried many things to ease my joints. This has been the best thing yet. I am not as stiff and the end of work or getting up out of my chair. I believe, it has helped me get rid of inflammation. I just put in 1 heaped tspn with some cold water and then add boiling water, as I don't wont to destroy the benefits with all hot water. I also add some organic cinnamon and when I go to work some Maca for more energy. This has worked the best, and a better price than all the tablets I was trying. Thanks Professional Whey, I love your products.
Almost Too GoodBy: Gemma Summers on 24 January 2014The Organic Cacao Powder is hands-down my favourite product. It's so good, I hesitate to buy it because once I do, I can't get enough. It goes pretty much with everything, including all your smoothies (even green smoothies—try it with spinach, banana and almond milk), yoghurts, power drinks, baked cookies and cakes. I especially love that it's packed with magnesium, keeping my stress levels down while giving my brain a boost at the same time. Tastes amazing. Health food doesn't come much yummier than this.
perfect for home made chocolateBy: robin wen on 26 December 2013i use their organic coconut oil and it is a great way to get your fat intake… good stuff..
The Taste!By: James Brown on 11 November 2013The cocoa powder is great. Really simply flavour it's all you need when flavouring any type of plain protein I use it for WPI,WPC & Casein. Definitely recommend this product.
Great Flavor!By: Kris Kostovski on 8 October 2013I have always been a fan of the bitter dark chocolate taste so i love adding this product to my post workout shakes. It may take someone who is new to this a little getting used to the flavor due to the lack of sweetness, but i once that phase passes you wont look back. Also, the fact that it does not contain any artificial ingredients adds peace of mind.
Great productBy: Brett Haylock on 4 October 2013I use this to flavour MPI and WPI shakes and it works well, tastes great!
Great with shakesBy: Sam Bailey on 26 September 2013With a tiny bit of stevia extract and cacao hydrolysed WPI tastes great! - without the insulin spike of sugar. Saved me from gagging numerous times! Why torture yourself?
Another great product!By: Richard Humphries on 22 September 2013This product is much higher quality than anything I can find in the shops in my area. I now get a lot of my fat blocks from making chocolate using this ingredient with cacao butter, maple syrup and almonds. Yes, that’s right healthy chocolate! It’s also versatile enough to be used in shakes or add to yoghurt. I highly recommend this product.
Many usesBy: BRADLEY HENDERSON on 16 September 2013I purchase Oganic Cacoa to add flavour to my Pea Protein. I also add it in my morning oats, cream cheese, sprinkle on cut fruit, and in the various protein balls, bars and slices i create. Organic Cacoa is a great product and very well priced
Loving ItBy: Heath Yeager on 26 August 2013This stuff is amazing, couldn't live without it. Be warned i used twice as much as they say to flavour it and its hard to find a suitable replacement. Fantastic anti oxidant action
Great tasteBy: Doran McGregor on 24 August 2013As soon as you open the packet you are hit with a strong clean coco smell. This stuff tastes great and becasue I use natural flavour WPI I am able to add as much or as little as I want. Nice to break up the bland flavour when I want a treat. I imagine it would taste great used when used in baking recipes.
Amazon qualityBy: Brad Senese on 10 August 2013After drinking this organic cocao power the only thing lacking was a dart pipe, a canoe and other Amazonian paraphernalia. However after drinking it before bed an Amazon Lady came to me in my sleep and ventured with me to the sacred cocao water falls and hot springs. This is where things become a little hot and confidential. Lol. (Ok just kidding). I drink this with my protein powder and I always have an extra 2 cups before bed, IM ADDICTED! A tea spoon of sugar is perfect I have this with hot water and a dash of milk.. But for absolute enjoyment enhancement it's like this real Cocao powder was meant for heated milk. Therefore - that's milk chocolate! And complete impeccable taste as it was intended to be served. After 15 year's of coffee and hot chocolates amongst other food. While working out of Resorts, accommodation, Hotels, cities, suburbs.. I can assure this is at the top for chocolate quality list. Nor should it be compared to milk chocolate potentially containing soy lecithin. This is a brilliant clean raw product. . Add what you like with it.
Don't be a heroBy: Wade Thomas on 10 July 2013Give into temptation. I tried non flavoured for quite some time and although it was tolerable, you don't need to live like that. This is a great guilt free flavouring and I even use the stevia extract now. Tastes awesome and due to the boost to my serotonin levels I get less "hangry" (hungry/angry).
The real dealBy: Matthew Finster on 13 April 2013Love this. Would recommend the stevia extract to get a really fulfilling taste though, it feels somewhat incomplete when I have one without the other.
Very niceBy: Angela Donato on 18 February 2013Excellent product, not lumpy at all. Naturally a bit bitter as one would expect from a pure cacao powder but easily remedied with natural sweetener!
Love it!By: Rosslyn Rosenberg on 28 December 2012Go to suggested uses and have a look at the chocolate recipe on this website. I've experimented with stevia and whey protein, and all the other additions suggested. Now I have a recipe I enjoy. So do some of my friends! But unless you really love coconut cream I wouldn't bother with it. I love this chocolate without coconut cream. Just the Professional Whey products are enough to make a chocolate I enjoy as a snack. Keeps me looking and feeling great, and takes care of those hungry moments. I'm celebrating because I haven't had a day off work with illness this year. Think there must be something in these super foods!
Super flavour, rich tasteBy: Terry Harvey on 11 December 2012Used in making my own 'recovery' mix and it has been great. Very pure, rich dark choc taste that may need sweetening by some. Only place I'll purchase my product from now on.
The bestBy: shaun wilby on 26 November 2012Tastes great, mixes great. Buy it...
tooeasyBy: Luke Aram on 23 November 2012so much easier then chewing the raw cocao. I add it to my egg powder protein shake with stevia and it tastes great!
AwesomeBy: Michael Bourne on 21 October 2012Finally a great tasting flavour, that is actually super healthy!
Love It!By: Steven Moalaeua on 20 July 2012Organic Cacao that tastes delicious, enough said. Awesome stuff!
cooking mainlyBy: James Hall on 14 July 2012We use this primarily for cooking where it is triple strength to cocoa. It makes great ice cream and chocolate cakes as well as mixed with almond meal and coconut oil - a great fat burner.
Organic flavoursBy: bruce tattersall on 14 July 2012Having used Cacao & vanilla , I enjoy both flavours find them easy to mix and recommend either to anyone.
Clearly a high quality productBy: Gavin Kromhout on 30 June 2012I've never used a Premium Cocoa Powder for flavouring before but this is clearly a high quality product and surprisingly complete food. Having said that it perhaps wasn't for me, while smooth it still doesn't completely disolve even in a blender. There is a slight powerdyness that I'm struggling to get through it. Just a tablespoon of honey or straight USA WPI is easier on the pallet IMHO.
Good flavour but...By: KUOK ZHI FOH on 26 June 2012"A 500g pack can flavour up to 5kg of most of our protein powders." Based on the calculations 1kg/100g cacao. Purchased the WPC Whey. Could just taste the cacao flavour.. I feel that it needs to be at least doubled. 200g per 1kg of Whey. Besides that: - Flavour 5/5 no problems (may need some sweetner I don't mind slight biterness) - Quality 5/5
Cocao-liciousBy: Sigrid de Castella on 6 June 2012Hands down simply the best cocao powder you will ever try - no additives, sugars or fillers. Once you get your hands on this one you'll never go back to any other.
Chocolate GoldBy: BRENT SAMYIA on 1 June 2012This Cacao Powder is top of the range great chocolate taste that is not bitter I use in a tonic smoothie for Breakfast and it never lumps this Cacao Powder is like Velvet!
AwesomeBy: Luke Conliffe on 1 March 2012Makes for a great tasting shake. Like knowing that it’s the real thing and satisfies my chocolate cravings without guilt. Would recommend to others.
