What Are Organic Raw Cacao Nibs?
Cacao, (Theobroma cacao), a tropical evergreen tree (family Malvaceae) grown for its edible seeds, whose scientific name means food of the gods in Greek. Native to lowland rainforests of the Amazon and Orinoco river basins, cacao is grown commercially in the New World tropics as well as western Africa and tropical Asia. Organic Cacao Nibs are natures chocolate chips! Naturally, without added sugar, made from crushed cacao beans, the nibs are crunchy, full of flavour and packed with powerful nutrients, antioxidants, and fibre. Their deep dark chocolate flavour is perfect when you ‚¬ „¢re craving a chocolate treat without the indulgence factor.
Why Should I Get Organic Raw Cacao Nibs?
The cacao bean (seed pod) comes from the Theobroma tree, which is also known as the cacao or cocoa tree. People have been enjoying the benefits of the cacao tree from around 1400 to 1500 BC in Mesoamerica. Artefacts from ancient Aztecs reveal that a beverage made from cocoa beans had been consumed, but it was unsweetened and much different than the hot cocoa beverage we think of today. Cacao beans were also used as currency across Mesoamerica, prior to the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire. Cacao nibs have all the benefits of eating dark chocolate, without the added sugar. They are high in nutrients and contain the same mood-boosting chemicals associated with dark chocolate. Add to your porridge, oatmeal, smoothies, flapjacks. Use in all sorts of baking and dessert recipes! You could add to nut and seed mixes for a healthy snack.
What's In My Organic Raw Cacao Nibs?
Ingredients: Cacao nibs are all natural and simply chocolate in its purest form before anything else is added. They are dried and fermented nibs of cacao beans. The texture of our raw organic cacao nibs is like that of roasted coffee beans. They have a deep chocolate flavour which can be described as slightly bitter and nutty. Raw cacao nibs are the less processed version of chocolate with no unhealthy additives, so they preserve all the nutrients of the natural cacao bean. Cacao nibs are an excellent source of antioxidants, fibre, iron and magnesium.
