    I love the organic cocoa powder. I have been making the flourless brownies. I have a question about lead. I am reading how cocoa can be higher in lead if sourced outside of USA. One reason was the equipment being used in USA had to adhere to lead free standards. Do you have info on this?

    Hi kaybb, thank you for your inquiry. We tested the cocoa powder via a third party laboratory for lead and it was measured at .02 ppm.

    If you have any other questions please do ask. :)

    For what it’s worth the FDA says this:

    The chocolate industry data indicate that the mean lead level in 226 dark chocolate samples (consisting of 9 products) was 0.048 ppm, the standard deviation was 0.029 ppm, and the maximum lead level found was 0.275 ppm. Several dark chocolate samples had lead levels exceeding 0.1 ppm, and more dark chocolate than milk chocolate samples had lead levels approaching 0.1 ppm. Dark chocolate samples tended to have higher lead levels than milk chocolate samples because chocolate liquor is the principal source of lead in chocolate products, and dark chocolate products contain higher amounts of chocolate liquor than milk chocolate products.”

    This makes a great "dry shampoo" if you're between washes. It works best for dark blond to medium brown or reddish hair. I use a make up brush to apply it to my roots and it absorbs the oils nicely.

    I learned about it from someone else years ago.:p:
    I've read somewhere that light to medium blondes or gray/white haired folks can use corn starch or rice powder as dry shampoo.

    I just wanted to let you know that today I used the cocoa powder as a bronzer on my face and it not only looks nice but I feel good about putting it on my skin- more so than even the cleanest commercial make up.

    Hi @Blossom! I did it today as well!! It feels great on your skin and my husband even agreed it was slightly better than no makeup for giving slight color. I also used a coconut oil mascara and a coconut oil and beet lip color. Feels so light and natural on my face but with a bit more umph...

    Can someone please tell me the health differences between non-alkalised cocoa and dutch processed? Is the dutch version better because it contains more fat?

    Dutching has nothing to do with fat. You can find high-fat and low-fat versions of both dutched and natural cocoa. I'm not sure about health differences.

    Hi Luk3, the dutch process make it less acidic along with making it easier to mix with milk and other liquids. We find it tastes better too. The fat content has nothing to do with the dutch processing. The higher fat content found in our cocoa powder will have more of the good nutrients and protective properties along with tasting much better then the lower fat versions.

    Hope that helps! If you have any more questions please let us know.
