I have been using this product for several months. It is extremely effective at controlling my hypertension. I haven't had to use statins forr several years now. Before treatment with statins, my blood pressure was somewhere around 140/90. The best I was able to achieve using statin prescription medicine was around 130/90. My blood pressure levels are now consistently around 120/80 using the raw cacao powder.

I've been eating Navitas cacao products for several years now (mostly the nibs, though, lately, not the powder). I was horrified to read the Consumer Lab report that just came out. It found extremely high levels of cadmium (though no lead, at least), in Navitas Naturals cacao powder. Alas, I will be switching brands.

I've always enjoyed Navitas Cacao Powder for both taste and quality. I was surprised and disappointed to see that my latest package no longer says, "Raw Cacao". Although their website says "processed with low heat", it's apparently no longer their commitment to keep it low enough to be labeled raw. I'll be reading the labels of trusted brands more carefully and buying my cacao elsewhere from now on.

Although I like the flavor and aroma of this cacao powder, no matter how much I shake it up in my breakfast drinks it stays in little clumps that are unpleasant. A significant amount of it inevitably stays behind in the bottom of the container no matter how quickly I down it.

I am giving this 2 stars only because I was hoping for something more I suppose. I have used Now Organic Cocoa Powder for ages, and I thought I'd splurge and give this raw type a try. I suppose I am receiving more pure nutrients from it, but I don't find it to be any better than the more economical Now version. Oh well, now I know. :)

This has easily been a 5 star product for the duration I've been having it (gone through about 10 bags). This latest instalment is a much darker colour, doesn't mix as well (usually just adding hot water would mix it automatically) and the taste is no where as nice or satisfying. I'm hoping it's just a batch thing and it will get back to the lighter colour that it used to be when I reorder. The bag design has changed but I take it that's got nothing to do with the contents. Please bring back the powder you used to supply!

Does it be added other thing in the powder? Why does the powder look like Brown instead Black?

This is great tasting cacao powder but the package detached from the resealing zip. As a result, all my items were covered in cacao including those that were meant to be a gift and now needed washing :(

There was a hole in the bag so the box was full of cocoa even tho the taste was good.
