Organic Cacao Nibs
Organic Cacao Nibs deliver quality nutrition, offering all the benefits of raw cacao powder yet with an interesting crunch. Raw Cacao Nibs are rich in natural antioxidants and minerals, including potassium and magnesium. A daily serving helps to keep your mineral and antioxidant status topped, and keep you feeling alert and alive.
Simply sprinkle onto yoghurt, granola, chia puddings or acai bowls. Cacao nibs can be added to baked goods, however some of the nutritional benefits will be reduced due to the damaging effects of heat. After all, this is the difference between cacao (raw) and cocoa (heat-treated)! Any time of day is the perfect time for a cacao nib crunch, bursting with natural flavour and nutrition.
Raw Cacao Nib Benefits
These single origin Certified Organic Raw Cacao Nibs are from the finest Criollo heirloom variety cacao beans. The indigenous Peruvian growers use a traditional method of cultivation by planting the cacao trees and other fruit plants under the natural rainforest canopy. The pods are then harvested and cracked open, before the beans are removed and fermented, at a low temperature not exceeding 45oC.
These Organic Cacao Nibs are free from preservative and artificial additives, and are non-GMO. Organic cacao nibs have a rich, brown colour, a crunchy texture and a decadent full-bodied, tangy chocolate flavour and aroma. Cacao nibs are a delicious snack and a wonderful, natural way to add yummy chocolate flavour to yoghurt, cereal and baked goods.
How to Use Cacao Nibs
Organic Cacao Nibs may be consumed on their own or combined with nuts and dried fruit – they go beautifully with cashews, goji and Inca berries. Use them in smoothies, raw food super balls and chia puddings. Sprinkle over acai bowls or on ice-cream sundaes.
They add fabulous flavour when added to baked goodies including muesli bars, muffins and cookies. Or crush in a mortar & pestle before adding to hot coffee or milk for a delicious beverage.
Include a few spoons of Organic Cacao Nibs in your next batch of home-made nut butter before grinding for a treat everyone will love. Raw cacao nibs can be ground and used in traditional confectionery recipes; or combined with coconut oil and cacao butter to create wonderful dairy free chocolates.
