Cocoa is rich in antioxidants, good fats, magnesium and other mineral. Magnesium is important as it is involved in more than 300 bodily function. Cocoa can help to reduce high blood pressure, heart diseases, stroke, increasing nitric oxide hence enhancing circulation, improve our mood and many more! It’s organic (no pesticides) and the best value for money. Since it does not contain any sweeteners so you can adjust according! I find that honey + cocoa powder is a very good combination. Since this product comes in a plastic container, it is highly recommended to keep in dry places like the refrigerator. Otherwise, the powder will cake and clump together after opening.

The ONLY reason I bought NOW of Cocoa powder was because of all the rave reviews. All I have to say is that many people have not tried either NATIVAS or EARTH CIRCLE brands, both of which blow this away! Taste pales in comparison – I had both (NATIVAS and NOW) and tried equal amounts (2 tbsp) in my smoothies and proteins shakes. No comparison! Plus, did anyone noticed that NOW brand doesn't give the "Country of Origin" of their cocoa? Maybe that's because they blend a lot of different ones together, so they can't give en exact country from which it was grown. I prefer Ecuador cocoa products which is by far the best quality. Either way, good luck in life and health!

I don`t doubt its quality but it is bitter enough to spoil recipes that include it.

if you expect something like Valrhona's or Godiva's at least, this is not for you. not flavorful, but powdery. the only good thing about this product is "organic."

If you're only going to fill it up to 2/3 ? I am almost tempted to empty it all and weight the content to make sure I am not getting ripped off here. What a shock when I opened the lid.

I don't like the taste, I prefer a dark rich flavour. Too bad, I made myself a cup of cocoa and I can't drink it.
