Panama organic whole cacao is delicately roasted to retain aroma, unique taste and nutrition.
Roasted Cacao nibs are fermented cacao beans that have been cleaned, roasted and lightly crushed. They have a pleasantly bittersweet chocolatey taste and the toasted, crunchy feeling of roasted nuts, wonderful in baked goods, ice cream, salads, and trail mix or granola.
Can you put cacao nibs in coffee?
Try adding nibs to your yogurt, smoothies, banana bread, salad and coffee to get that chocolaty flavor without adding sugar. Cacao gives you a theobromine boost to your caffeine, preventing a midday caffeine and sugar crash.
Cacao is one of the best sources of antioxidants, iron, fibre and magnesium.
