- Cacao Nibs
Botanical Name - Theobroma Cacao
Bits of raw cacao beans, nature's chocolate chips - ACO Certified
Aztec and Mayan warriors were given Cacao Nibs before a battle or a sacred hand-ball competition. The crushed core of the cacao bean contains a wealth of essential minerals including magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus. Cacao is one of the richest sources of antioxidants making it the ultimate nutrition source for stamina and muscle endurance. Cacao Nibs have the same nutritional value as Cacao Paste.
Mature cacao pods are removed from the tree by hand, split open and the seeds are scooped out to be fermented for a week. The beans are dried under the sun and broken into small crunchy nibs. Enjoy on their own or as a dairy-free alternative to chocolate chips.
