I do not know why this product mentions 0g protein. Maybe the manufacturer can answer it directly. But in any case, I wouldn't buy cacao for its protein, but mainly for its antioxidants and minerals.

As you can see the nutritional value is based only on a teaspoons worth, therefore the protein value would be less than 0 so that is why they have it at zero. That's why you either see a nutritional value as <1 because to them it's not worth mentioning exactly how much. Obviously the figure goes up with each calculated portion. I think the protein here works out to be about 0.3g. But if you used say 2 tablespoons then the protein would register and would then be about 1.8g. It's obvious that cacao would have some form of protein in it so first of all look at what they are basing their servings on and then compare.

This isn't good taste which I expected. I think it's not because of raw. I don't really like this brand.They are cheap but quality is alway disappointing...

Show me. I just googled and Nativas had only 3 grams of protein, not a whole lot. We also don’t buy for protein, but for anti oxidant properties.

I buy cacao for its other ingredients, not for protein. Other sources that I use only list 1 g or less than 1 gram of protein. Maybe you are confusing this product with cacao flavored protein?
