An exchange with Navitas :

 

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us and for your interest in our Cacao Powder.

Our old packaging did only specify 17 mg/serving of flavanols. This was based on some very specific, restrictive testing. We have broadened the scope of our flavanol/flavanoid testing and our packaging now states that our product contains 700 mg/serving of flavanols. Our testing is all conducted by independent, third-party labs, and we are confident in this number.

Unfortunately, we do not share our COA documents as we consider them proprietary information.

I hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to reach out with any further questions.

Sincerely,
Product Specialist

Subject: COA Cocoa / Flavonoid Content

Hey, do you guys have a COA with the flavonoid content of your cocoa powder? On iHerb it says 17mg / serving but that seems like it would be rather low.

 

A serving is about 15g so this would imply a flavonol content of about 4.6%. Is this credible? I've been looking for a reasonably-priced cocoa powder that sports a high flavonol content. Been using Chococru (8% flavonols) for a while but it's rather expensive. Acticoa (from Callebaut) only comes in pearls, not in the form of powder. There's one other powder on Amazon but it has a 1% flavonol content which is fairly little. Any others?

Acticoa is available as Lavlé chocolate now.

 

Did you have any luck with Navitas Cocoa powder?

 

I'm thinking of trying it, since it's insanely expensive to have Lavlé shipped from Belgium to New Zealand....

I use Chococru if they're in stock. Hadn't heard of Lavlé but it has less than 25% of Chococru's flavonol content. As per usual they sell these chocolates at 200mg per serving which renders it much more expensive (about twice as expensive as Chococru, and I live in Belgium so it's not the shipping).

Navitas is said to be high in heavy metals, unfortunately.

 

Callebaut never responds to my messages about buying their Acticoa powder, they only sell it in bulk. Good for a group buy maybe.

That's unfortunate about Navitas. Would have been a good choice for me otherwise, since it's readily available on iherb.

 

I can't find Chococru available in-stock anywhere. Supposedly available again on 14 Feb. Shipping is going to be a pain.

 

I'm trying to get pricing on Acticoa. I'll post here if I have any luck.
