Nature’s Chocolate Chips
Cacao nibs are made from pure cacao beans that come straight out of the tropical cacao fruit. Cacao was a culinary treasure to Mesoamericans for thousands of years and touted as the "Food of the Gods" for its superior nutritional profile and exceptional flavor. Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs are crunchy chocolate just as nature intended, in an easy to use and versatile form.
Product of Peru
Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs come from Peru, where tropical cacao trees have grown for thousands of years, providing the Incan Empire with a highly nutritious and exceptionally versatile food. We carefully select our cacao beans from small-scale organic cacao farmers in the heart of Peru's forests. Before being tested for micro-contaminants to ensure the cleanest and safest products, our cacao beans are delicately removed from the pod-like fruit, rinsed with purified water and partially fermented. The beans are peeled and gently crumbled to form small “nibs.”
Cacao has been consumed for its invigorating and healthy properties for generations in Mexican, Central and South American cultures. Like all cacao products, Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs are loaded with antioxidants. In fact, cacao is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet! Cacao also contains fiber and a number of vital minerals - especially magnesium and iron. An incredibly complex food, cacao also contains unique and potent chemical alkaloids including anandamine, theobromine and phenylethylamine.
Minerals and Antioxidants
One of nature's richest dietary sources of magnesium, cacao nibs are also an excellent source of iron and dietary fiber. You'll feel really great about eating cacao nibs, due to the alkaloids theobromine, phenylethylamine and anandamine, which boost your mood and can make you feel like you're in love!
