Cacao beans are the seeds of an Amazonian fruiting tree and source of all chocolate and cocoa products.
Our raw Nibs are from the best tasting premium criollo variety and are simply the shelled and crushed chocolate beans.
The Mexican Mayan kings drank up to 30 pure chocolate drinks a day to maintain their vigour and valued the bean so highly that it was used as money.
Raw Cacao products are a source of beta-carotene, amino acids (protein), Omega-3 EFA's, calcium, zinc, iron, copper, sulphur, potassium, and one of the best food sources of muscle relaxing, stress relieving magnesium
– Now you know why women crave chocolate every month!
1. What is the difference between the Nibs and Cacao Crunch? Nibs are unsweetened and raw – but Cacao Crunch is not considered a raw product as the raw nibs have been rolled in roasted chocolate paste and panela sweetener.
2. How much caffeine does cacao have? All natural products vary, but it is generally considered to have about 1% caffeine (as compared to tea at 4% and coffee which can be more than 10% !!)
3. So why do I feel so good eating cacao? Cacao has other naturally occurring phytochemicals like theobromine (considered an aphrodisiac), phenylethylamine (PEA – released when we fall in love), and anandamide (the ‘bliss' chemical).
