Cocoa Powder Overview

Chocolate has been a celebrated food and drink for centuries, and consuming chocolate has traditionally been something to savor as a decadent indulgence. But chocolate has undergone a nutritional renaissance thanks to the discovery that cocoa - the basic ingredient in chocolate - is not only not bad for you, it's nutritious superfood. Cocoa powder like this organic cocoa powder from NOW Foods is full of heart-healthy antioxidants, fiber, protein and has a far higher concentration of mood-enhancing compounds than chocolate. Not to mention an deep rich chocolate taste when sweetened just enough to offset cocoa inherent bitterness. Use NOW Organic Cocoa Powder as you would any cocoa powder, great when added to shakes, coffee or baking recipes.

Smooth Cocoa, Great Product and Value

I have purchased this cocoa to mix into protein shakes and oatmeal. It mixes well, is high quality, and is a good value when compared to competitors. I will continue to purchase this product in the future.

Best cocoa we've ever had!

I didn't realize how good this stuff was until I purchased another high quality cocoa elsewhere and made hot cocoa. Even my five year told me that the cocoa just wasn't as good as usual. The only difference was that I hadn't used the Now brand. It just has so much more depth of flavor. You also can't beat the price of it here, and cocoa is really going up in price lately.

The BEST cocoa money can buy! BAR NONE!

This stuff is the best for brownies, but adding a little to my protein shake is awesome. If you bake, and you like chocolate, this is a must have. Don't just buy 1, you'll end up crying when you run out.

You dont know what a chocolate protein shake is until you've added this to your protein powder.

I love chocolate but most chocolate protein powders are a far cry from actually tasting like chocolate. Sure, they're brown like chocolate and sweet like chocolate but that's about it. My girlfriend bought this with baking in mind but when we added a few tablespoons to some to Jarrow unflavored whey along with some xylitol (to sweeten it) and lecithin granules (for a creamy texture and nutritious phospholipids)....we were blown away by the intense, deeply chocolate flavor from the NOW cocoa powder. It's unsweetened so you can use it almost any way you want. And beyond tasting great, cocoa powder is full of antioxidants. Makes a great cafe mocha when mixed into hot, sweetened coffee, too.
