History tells us how the Ancient Mayans and Aztecs called cacao the “food of the gods” because of its energizing effect and use in sacred rituals. The source of cacao’s power is not hard to find: each spoonful is filled with nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants. But because of mass-production, our generation has become used to overly sweet and processed chocolate--far from the divine taste and health benefits of true cacao.
The Organic Cacao Powder by Happy Andes gives you the wholesome and delicious taste of genuine cacao, straight from Peru!
Happy Andes brings you the rich taste of cacao native to the Amazon rainforests. The beans are sourced directly from our farms. All our cacao powders come from single-sourced beans from Peru.
Compared to other powders, harvested and prepared in Peru. Through this process, the powders retain more nutrients and antioxidants, along with the cacao’s distinct taste. You’ll never want to go back to generic chocolate again!
Rest assured that no chemical additives are present in your cacao powder. Each pack is stamped USDA-certified, which means our powder passed federal guidelines on the absence of artificial preservatives, colors, and flavoring.
Our cacao powder aids your digestion, bone strength, and assists your body during blood production. They’re also rich in flavanols, which combat tissue degeneration and cell damage.
Raw cacao is famous for wonders in improving brain function. The flavanols in cacao help supply the brain with blood, resulting in enhanced mental performance in adults and improved neuron production.
Cacao contributes to the improvement of your mood and lowering the levels of stress hormones. The bean’s flavanol content aids production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter also known as a “happy hormone” that is in charge of regulating behavior and appetite.
LEVEL-UP YOUR DESSERTS
Even a tablespoon is enough to elevate even the plainest smoothies, home-baked cookies, brownies, pies, cakes, chocolate milk, coffee, and hand-churned ice cream.

A TASTE WORTHY OF THE DIVINE
Mayans and Aztecs used the cacao plant as an offering in their ceremonies and as a day-to-day beverage. They even believed the cacao beans had magical properties, which connected them to the gods.
When you experience our pure Peruvian cacao, you’ll understand how the powder eventually got its godly moniker.
Our beans do not undergo excessive processing, allowing the powder to retain the flavors Peruvians have loved for a thousand years.
