"According to Consumer Lab, the upper limit for cadmium is 0.3 mcg/gram (0.3 ppm). Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder contains 0.95 mcg/gram (0.95 ppm) which is over 3 times the upper limit. "Cadmium is a probable carcinogen, can be toxic to kidneys, can cause softening of bones, and may affect fetal development" according to CL. The effects are weight dependent so children will be impacted more."
Do your own research on this brand, however Cacao in general is very healthy and easily used for cooking. It should be a go to product.
Also, other products of Cacao being reviewed, including the top seller, have consumer complaints of how bad the smell of the product is. Using your nose is commonly a good indication of taste (something like 90% of taste comes from our nose... I forgot what the percentage really is). It is not always an accurate indication, but it can be mostly reliable. This stuff smells good and when I smell it, I can't wait to have my shake! :-)
The Consumer Lab report from 2014 is outdated. Reviewers are saying that the company is not coming forward with the fact it has cadmium in it. Well, I found it suspect that Amazon would go on selling it when the product exceeds FDA levels of cadmium in foods. I too began to research it, but my focus was on, how are they getting away with being caught to have too much cadmium and yet are still be sold? The answer is, they are clearly addressing the cadmium levels. They have heard your complaints, explain what the issue is, and how they have been lowering the cadmium levels. You should go read it for yourselves to see if it their efforts satisfies you. The only thing I am concerned about is that they are self-policing. It would be great if they regularly sent product samples out to a 3rd party testing company to get an assay back that reveals the cadmium levels. That kind of self-policing is not unusual and is used as a tool for them to make sure their processing is not taking up too much cadmium.
It is also not unusual for competing companies to take their competition's product to a lab and get an assay. They did this with a toxicity in a baby formula and I love that it is being checked over and over again by both sides. In fact, the company that had the toxicity has made it a huge campaign to assure only the highest quality formula is in their products.
That's why I am saying, just don't rely on an assay from Consumer Labs. Keep up with what's going on and realize that although your phone call or email is not being returned, they did hear the outcry and are doing something about it. Go to the Navitas Naturals site and look for this page: prop65_cacao.html (or find that page by googling for: cadmium navitas cacao powder) and decide for yourselves if this is good enough action for you. Everyone is different.
I dropped my review to 4 stars only because I'd like to see assays being posted on their web site or something to that effect to assure their customers that they are serious about continual follow up to address this issue.
Finally, cacao is not a different spelling for cocoa. They are absolutely 2 different things. Many reviews are confusing the 2 as being one in the same and not just with this product's review. I found the confusion in reviews for almost all of Amazon's cacao Powder offerings.
I hope this helps!
I wasn't expecting it to be anything like typical chocolate, and I'm not sure why so many people thought it was. The sour/vinegary smell/taste some people so dramatically complain about isn't that strong. It's unusual, and if you weren't expecting the unique smell, or expecting it to smell like milk chocolate, then you might be surprised. It's nutty, it's bitter, but you can taste the chocolate (not the highly sweetened kind but like 90+% dark chocolate).
As for the "shells" that some people complain about, there's some "skin" (not sure exactly what it's supposed to be called) that's still attached to a few of the nibs, but nothing crazy (see picture). It's similar the skin on pistachios and other nuts. I usually take a look at what I grab out of the bag and pick it out. If I missed one or two, which I've probably done already, it probably wouldn't be noticeable.
Hoping Navitas will keep up the quality, because if it changes, I will update my review accordingly. As of now, there are many negative recent reviews for the two other brands I mentioned about shell (or twigs) in Viva and Healthworks brands.
