Organic Cocoa Powder - Natural, Unsweetened, Non-Dutched, Non-GMO, Kosher, Sirtfood, Bulk - by Food to Live
The unsweetened organic cocoa can be used to make tasty and healthy drinks. Unlike Starbucks cocoa, which is laden with sugar and extra calories, you can use this powder to create your own hot beverage that can be vegan and low-fat.

Please bear in mind that organic cocoa contains a tiny amount of caffeine. It's nowhere near as stimulating as coffee or even tea, but it can help clear your mind a bit when you are feeling tired.
Organic Cocoa Powder Vs. Cacao Powder
Cocoa powder is a little different from cacao powder because it's processed differently. Cacao is made from raw, minimally processed cocoa beans and therefore retains almost all nutrients they contain. However, this results in a very bitter taste and reduced shelf life.
