Rainforest Red Cocoa Powder

(15 reviews) Write a Review


Santa Barbara Chocolate's Wholesale Red Cocoa Powder made from rainforest grown cacao is the secret baking ingredient used by several 5 star restaurants.


Deep red color and a warm finish are the reasons why our cocoa powder is the choice of professionals. With a low ash content you get pure cacao flavor. We have achieved this remarkable cocoa powder by selecting premium ripe cacao, sun drying the cocoa beans and roasting to perfection. This is a premium cocoa powder and a natural cocoa powder.  This is the remarkable achievement that we have developed such a beautiful red color without alkalization. You've never had cocoa powder like this before and once you do, you'll be hooked.

Santa Barbara Chocolate Rainforest Cacao and Cocoa Powder blends are of exotic origin. All exclusive blends, ethically traded adhering to the highest standards of quality. Our cocoa powders are not loaded up with fillers or ash. A tablespoon of our rainforest exclusive cocoa powder will offer a bigger flavor impact and satisfying taste. Perfect for all baking recipes, smoothies, hot chocolate drinks, frostings, cakes and brownies our cocoa powders are smooth, unsweetened pure cocoa goodness.

Ingredients: Natural Cocoa Powder

California style Cocoa Made in the USA. Choosing cocoa powder made in the USA is very important.  USA pressed cocoa must pass stricter requirements than those pressed in some other countries.  Our red cocoa powder is a very premium quality you will recognize the instant you smell the rich and pleasing aroma.

Santa Barbara Chocolate Co. has been built on quality chocolate and cocoa. It would be a pleasure for us to be associated with your company as your wholesale chocolate supplier.

    Bittersweet and rich flavor

    This cocoa powder really does look like it's a deep crimson color, and it has a deep earthy aroma. I've made dark and milk chocolate with this cocoa and it tastes perfect as both. I'm really glad I chose Santa Barbara Chocolates; fair trade chocolate is worth the cost.

    Best Cocoa Ever!

    Posted by Josh Gulachek on 16th Jan 2018

    When I graduated from the Culinary Institute of America I started my search for a high quality, affordable cocoa that is natural (not alkalized) and with great flavor that I could build my business upon. I have never been able to find one till now (many years later). This cocoa has helped me really gain market share here in Hawaii and I love it. This cocoa has no ash so it is full flavored and with incredible color. Every drink and dessert we make blows the competition away and it shows every Sunday morning with the line out my door (people come for my hot cocoa and lava cakes specifically). Thank you for the quality and service. YUM

    Best natural cacao powder

    Posted by Nikola Valone on 16th Jan 2018

    This cacao powder is premium quality. One would be hard pressed to find a comparable product on the consumer market. Guittard and Velrhona don't even come close. Great flavor and aroma, worth the wait and price.

    Not impressed.

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jan 2018

    You have to use a lot of this to get it to taste. Vahlrona and hersheys are more potent that this. Also found it is giving me awful migraines from the ash content.
    No response from owner as soon as I told him I did not like, very disappointed. Paid too much for poor quality product.
