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?
