What is Black Cacao?
This mighty fine black cocoa powder is made from highly alkalized or ‘dutched’ cocoa beans. This process makes it less bitter than regular cacao, and gives it a cool black color, unlike the regular brown one.
According to our extensive (!) research, we have found that most people don’t know what black cacao is, even though they have probably eaten it a trillion times. Yes, you’ve had it too.
Ever wondered what makes Oreos black? *hint* It’s not the grinds of your ‘cool’ uncle Jeff’s leather pants (because leather is not vegan).
Of course, it’s made of black cocoa. And now you can make your own!
Why this product?
People have asked us for an alternative to our activated charcoal and your wish is our command. Get that intense black color without the detoxing properties of activated charcoal.
Do we even need to say more? I mean BLACK CHOCOLATE? Your life will be complete with this amazing powder.
Make intensely black cakes, icing, macarons, drinks, or whatever makes your inner badass happy.
This product contains no fat, and that leaves it a bit more dry and with a slightly different flavor than regular cacao. So for the best results, you should add a bit more fat to your recipe to get perfect results. If you want that exact same chocolatey flavor that you’re used to, we also suggest you mix in some brown cocoa in your recipes (which will enhance the flavors).
If you make recipes using baking soda be aware that baking soda does not work with large amounts of Black cocoa powder (¾ cup or more) as it is alkalized and will interfere with the reaction properties of baking soda that should cause the rising.
There are two solutions to this we recommend. They can be combined to work together as well.
1. Add baking powder on top of the baking soda to get the proper rise of your creation. (Start with one teaspoon and add up to two if you need to)
2. Reduce the amount of black cocoa and add in a bit of regular cacao to make it a mixture of both. This will still get a very dark color but will avoid issues with rising.
Black cocoa contains close to zero fat. This can lead to baked goods getting drier. If you’re worried this might happen, add a tablespoon of vegan yogurt or sour cream to the recipe

Pro tips for awesome results
A little powder goes a LONG way
Most products are very concentrated and we recommend starting with 1/2 teaspoon of the powder. If you desire a stronger color just add more powder until satisfied.
Light colored fruits will make them colors POP
In order the get those vibrant colors that you see on instagram, you need to know what to blend the powders with. Light colored fruits such as banana, pineapple, coconut are the best ingredients for a COLOR BOMB smoothie.
DON’T blend with dark fruits and berries
You might have learned a thing or two from using watercolors as a kid. If you combine two colors with a lot of pigment none of the colors will pop. The same applies to our powders. If you mix them with blueberries, raspberries, pomegranate etc you won’t get that vibrant color.
Works best below 70 degrees Celsius (158 Fahrenheit)
As our products are 100% natural without additives some of them will loose part of its color when heated. Pitaya is a good example of a sensitive product. To prevent this, try decreasing the temperature while frying for a longer time. This will prevent any discoloring. (For Pancakes as an example, fry them on lower temperatures for longer time to maintain maximum color but still get a regularly fried pancake).
Store your powders in a cool and dry place
In order to keep your powders as fresh as possible store them airtight in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight.
Create unique shades by mixing colors
This is where the fun begins and the possibilities are endless! Try combining multiple colors for unique hues and shades. Adding a little bit of pink/red fruits to your Blue Spirulina powder will create a mint or turquoise tone.
