Nature’s Superfoods Organic Raw Cacao Nibs are premium quality organic raw cacao nibs, unroasted and unsweetened, of a rare variety, criollo (deemed as ‘king of cacao’ for its fine flavor & fragrance). Our cacao/cocoa nibs (pieces) are peeled and crushed raw criollo cacao beans that have not been roasted, thus retaining the highest possible level of antioxidants.The raw cacao beans have been lightly fermented to bring out the cocoa flavor, increase nutrient availability and reduce phytic acid content.
Out of all the whole foods that contain antioxidants, raw cacao or chocolate (not processed like your usual chocolate bar) has the highest level of antioxidants in the world, even more (by a few times) than popular foods/beverages commonly touted as being antioxidant-rich such as red wine, green tea or blueberries. Raw cacao is the No.1 antioxidant superfood in the world.
