    Raw cacao nibs are jam packed with antioxidants, magnesium and bliss nutrients that help keep you young, healthy and happy.

    Our Single origin, raw certified organic, fairly traded Raw Cacao Nibs are from Satipo in the Peruvian Amazon.

    Raw cacao is the primary dietary source of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in western civilisation. Magnesium is the most important mineral for a healthy functioning heart. It also plays a key role in producing energy for the neurons in the brain from glucose. So when there is an abundance of magnesium the brain works with clarity and focus.

    Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine (PEA), four well-studied neurotransmitters, which are associated with feelings of well being and help alleviate depression. Both PEA and Anandamide (the bliss chemical) are found in abundance in the brains of happy people and are particularly released when we are feeling happy. Both of these neurotransmitters are present in raw cacao in large enough quantities to affect the brain and lift our moods.

    We have all experienced the positive feelings associated with eating chocolate, now we have access to pure raw unadulterated chocolate in the form of Organic Raw Cacao. This is much more potent than the processed chocolate and doesn't have any sugar or dairy products blocking the positive effects of all the goodies in Raw Cacao.

    Suggested Serving

    Eat a handful whenever you want to feel energized and happy. Goes well in trail mix, especially with Goji Berries

    Processing

    The cacao pods are harvested from the trees and cracked open. The beans are then taken out and fermented at a low fermentation of about 45 degrees C, as otherwise the temperatures can get quite high, which affects the structure of the nutrients.

    They are then washed with a citric-based organic disinfectant. Afterwards, they're dried in large commercial dehydrators, at controlled temperatures, before being winnowed into nibs, which basically means taking the skin off them
