Our organic, raw cacao powder comes from the seeds of the native South American evergreen, which are found in the large oval shaped pods of the tree.
Cacao is a nutrient dense and less refined version of cocoa (what is used in chocolate), and hasn't been heated and treated at the same temperatures, allowing the cacao to keep its nutrient dense qualities.
Cacao is packed full of antioxidants and contains magnesium, calcium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, manganese and vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, C and E.
It's a high ORAC antioxidant superfood that is rich in minerals to make you feel healthy all over. Our cacao will be sure to leave you feeling happy and healthy!
Cacao is sustainably and organically grown by the farmers of the Yanesha communities in the Pasco region of Peru and has been used for hundreds of years as a nourishing and energising food for the South American people.
Best of all it has an amazing chocolate taste and can be used in desserts, drinks, chocolate creations and smoothies!

Is Cacao Powder the same as Cocoa Powder?
There is a big difference between cacao powder and cocoa powder, not only in how they are processed and produced but also in the additional nutritional value and health benefits associated with both. As cacao powder is processed in a raw state at low temperature, it ensures that the majority of the superfood's nutrients are retained. Cocoa powder, on the other hand, is heat-treated and loses a lot of its nutritional value in the process and is therefore not seen as a superfood.
What are the benefits of Cacao Powder?
Cacao Powder is produced through a low-temperature drying process which ensures the cacao powder keeps a range of health-benefiting properties, including having a wide spectrum of minerals including magnesium, iron, potassium, polyphenols and zinc, as well as possessing a high antioxidant ORAC value of 130,590 µmol TE/100g. An ORAC value is a measure of a food's antioxidant capacity.
What is better Cacao Powder or Cocoa Powder?
As cocoa powder is roasted at high temperatures, it is not seen as a superfood, as much of its nutritional value is lost at this high-temperature processing. Cacao powder, on the other hand, is processed by cold-pressing cacao beans and cacao nibs that have not been roasted, ensuring that its nutritional benefits remain.
Our Cacao Powder is proudly both Australian and USDA Certified Organic.
Our premium organic cacao is grown by local Yanesha farmers in the Pasco region of Peru. It's sustainably cultivated and grown under a nature consortium agroforestry system, meaning this cacao gives back not only to you but the local Peruvian communities as well.
Our premium Cacao Powder has not been subjected to high heat. Because of this low-temperature processing, it retains its status as a true natural superfood that has a wide range of nutrients along with a high level of antioxidant activity.
The cacao bean that goes into making our Cacao Powder is the Criolla cacao bean variety which is a rarer type of cacao bean that originates in Central America. You'll notice that our cacao tastes better than many other brands because this Criolla variety is known for its finer, sweeter and less bitter notes than traditional cacao powder. Best of all, a better tasting cacao powder means a more delicious chocolate recipe creation for you!
With an antioxidant ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of 130,590 µmol TE/100g, this cacao powder provides bodily protection from foreign invaders.
Feel powered-up and ready to roll with a range of energy-metabolising nutrients to power your day!
Contains magnesium, iron, potassium, polyphenols and zinc to support wellbeing and contribute to a range of health benefits.

As a Naturopath, I always advise my patients to choose a brand of superfoods and protein powders that are high-quality, uber clean, reliable and taste amazing. That is why I recommend using Tropeaka.
I also love that Tropeaka is committed to using organically grown ingredients wherever possible and they give back to communities through their Charity program.
Personally, I can’t eat dairy or gluten so Tropeaka’s plant-based protein powders are perfect as they blend so well and taste delicious. The Superfood options are endless and every single one is a high quality product. My 8yr old daughter absolutely loves making a superfood fuelled protein smoothie each morning which she finishes every single time!

As a Dietitian, Nutritionist & Recipe Developer, Tropeaka ticks all of my boxes! Wholefoods, quality ingredients and eating in a way that makes you feel good is central to my food philosophy and to find a company that compliments my values is so refreshing.
The health and wellness industry is an extremely saturated space at the moment, and I have to be honest in saying that I was apprehensive in trying another range of products. Given the nature of my work, I receive countless amounts to try and test and I can confidently say that until I tried Tropeaka, I was yet to find a Protein or Superfood Powder that I would personally use and would be happy to recommend to my clients and followers. These days, it’s rare to find a health food company that doesn’t use artificial sweeteners, additives, preservatives or misleading nutrition claims and is one of the many reasons Tropeaka comes out on top for me!
With the increasing popularity of plant-based eating (and for good reason at that!), It is evident that hours of research and time have gone into formulating these products to not only make them accessible and suitable for everyone, but to make them delicious, nutrient-dense and of the highest quality.
Each wholefood product clearly contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals and unmodified nutritious ingredients proven to optimise energy, strength, gut health, performance and immunity. Isn’t it obvious that feeling your best and living life to your fullest is at the forefront of Tropeaka’s mission?
I think so!
As a clinician, time and time again I witness my clients trying various protein powders that cause them digestive discomfort and leave them feeling sluggish. This is often the result of consuming products that use refined ingredients or sugar alcohols to add sweetness, or even due to a lack of digestive enzymes within their gut to break down the food. Tropeaka wholefood products are more likely to be suitable for those with food intolerances, food sensitivities, certain allergies and may help to manage bloating and general gut upset in some individuals due to the use of plant-protein and addition of digestive enzymes. Seriously what is not to love!
I personally enjoy adding the protein range into my healthy slices, muffins and bliss balls to make for a more satisfying and fulfilling snack. I’m also partial to an extra hit of antioxidants which is why the Immunity Powder has become a core ingredient in my morning smoothie. The vibrancy of the purple is like nothing you’ve seen before and makes for an aesthetically pleasing Instagram-worthy image every single time! I’m allowed to say that because it’s my part of my job to make food look as good as it tastes and what it can offer nutritionally, right?
