    Does the coco powder contain caffeine?

    1. April 11, 2023

      Yes, cocoa powder contains caffeine, and the caffeine content varies in different types of cocoa powder. The caffeine content ranges from 0.1% to 0.5%, which depends upon the type of beans used to make the cocoa powder and the degree of fermentation. For instance, the caffeine content in cocoa powder made with well fermented African cocoa beans of good quality is very low. If you do not want to have any caffeine in your diet, you should avoid cocoa powder.
