From the Manufacturer


Nature’s Sacred Chocolate

Cacao was first consumed by the Olmecs (1500-400 BC) as an energizing beverage to improve stamina and promote longevity. Over time, ancient civilizations like the Mayas and the Incas discovered ways of cultivating cacao where it was recognized as a symbol of abundance. Unlike conventional chocolate today, cacao powder is processed at low temperatures, retaining key nutrients and preserving the true essence of chocolate.

The Viva Labs Difference

There are three existing variations of cacao, the Criollo, the Forastero and a hybrid of the two, the Trinitario. Criollo, the rarest and richest variety, is hailed for its unique flavor and aroma, accentuating the true essence of chocolate. Cocoa products are often derived from the Forastero variety for its abundance and convenience, whereas our cacao is only sourced from the highest quality beans from Criollo pods. Criollo beans are composed of a unique flavor profile, lending subtle notes of vanilla and caramel and lacking the bitterness commonly associated with Forastero and Trinitario.

Once harvested, our cacao beans are naturally fermented in the fertile soils of Peru at high elevations, limiting moisture and locking in essential nutrients and freshness. Beans harvested in lower altitudes of the region are typically associated with higher mold content, whereas our cacao is third-party tested for quality control and safety, consistently reporting undetectable levels. Sustainably sourced in accordance with fair trade practices, Viva Labs Organic Cacao Powder instantly transforms desserts, smoothies, and other treats into guilt-free chocolatey goodness.

High in Dietary Fiber

Our prized cacao powder provides 4 grams of fiber per serving, contributing to your total daily requirements and allowing you to indulge in rich chocolate flavor.

Rich Supply of Antioxidants

A study published by the American Heart Association compared the flavonoid content of several different foods, including tea, vegetables, fruits and most importantly, decadent cacao. Cacao exhibited almost eight times the antioxidant capacity as black tea, reporting an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value of 95,500. Viva Labs Organic Cacao Powder is unaltered and is free from unwanted additives and fillers, neutralizing free radicals and preserving powerful nutrients within cacao.
