Organic Whey Protein Raw Cacao & Maca
Our Raw Cacao & Maca Organic Whey Protein is made using whey protein from organic grass fed cow’s milk, raw organic cacao, raw organic maca, a dash of unrefined organic coconut sugar and a sprinkle of Himalayan pink salt. We’ve used real organic whole foods with no additives, resulting in an exquisite creamy chocolate taste. Simply mix with water or milk for a very yummy protein drink.

Who is it for?
This is a protein powder anyone can use, regardless of your gender or what your goals may be. People often use our organic whey protein for the following reasons:
- Muscle and bone health
- Supporting a healthy active lifestyle
- To help keep going during times of physical stress
- Increased need for protein as a result of medical issues
- Lacking protein from other foods due to dietary restrictions
- Some people just enjoy the taste and find the benefits to be a bonus
Organic whey protein concentrate from organic milk (69%), raw organic cacao powder (18%), unrefined organic coconut sugar (7.6%), raw organic maca powder (5%) and Himalayan pink salt (0.4%).
Mix 25g with 75-100ml of water or milk (dairy or plant based) vigorously in a shaker for 30 seconds, or for 10 seconds in a blender. A very effective alternative is to use a handheld milk frother for around 10-15 seconds. You can use more liquid as desired, though this will result in the flavour and creaminess being watered down. It can also be added to smoothies, yoghurt, bread, cakes, or just about any food or drink you fancy giving an extra protein boost.
25g is equivalent to approximately 60ml, which is equal to ¼ cup, 3.5 tablespoons, 2 scoops, or of course you can also weigh on a set of kitchen scales for the best accuracy. Many people only have half a serving (so around 12.5g or 30ml) as they don't need a lot of extra protein in their diet, so feel free to use less if this sounds like you.
Each 25g serving contains 15.17g of protein, 382.5mg calcium, 4.72g of carbs and 2.05g of fat.
|Typical Values||Per 100g||Per 25g Serving|
|of which saturates||3.2g||0.8g|
|of which sugars||9.4g||2.35g|
|Calcium||519mg||129.8mg (16.22% RI)|
|Phosphorus||435mg||109mg (15.57% RI)|
RI = Reference intake of an average adult (8400 kJ/2000 kcal)
Our organic whey protein contains all of the essential and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) naturally occurring in the whey.

Bioactive protein fractions
Bioactive proteins are a key reason whey protein is so much more than “just” a quality protein, as many of these proteins are also in human breast milk, and there is a lot of evidence that they have a wide range of health benefits. You can read more on this in our blog post here.
|Bioactive protein||Per 100g||Per 25g Serving|
|Immunoglobulin G (IgG)||2.28g||570mg|
These figures are based on the test results from our Pure Unflavoured organic whey protein concentrate, which we have then reduced to 69% of the total result, as this is the percentage of organic whey protein concentrate in the Raw Cacao & Maca blend. You can download the original certificate here.
