Cacao Nibs

What are cacao nibs?

Cacao nibs are derived from crushed cacao (cocoa) beans. As their name suggests they are small crushed tips of these beans. They have a chocolate flavour and can be either roasted or unroasted. Unroasted nibs are naturally enough called raw cacao nibs. Cacao nibs are nutritious and packed full of healthy plant compounds.

Organic cacao nibs are derived from organically grown and harvested cacao beans. These beans will have been grown without the aid of harmful chemicals, pesticides or genetically modified material. Cacao nibs contain substantially less sugar than other chocolate alternatives and as such represent a better choice for  the weight and sugar sensitive. They are considered to be highly nutritious and are loaded with antioxidants which help deliver many tangible health benefits.
