The cacao bean is the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of Theobroma cacao from the family Malvaceae and is related to cotton, hibiscus and okras. Pronounced "kəˈkāō", cacao beans are found in the deep tropical regions of Central and South America and are the base of all chocolate. Cacao nibs are nature's original unsweetened chocolate chip, made from crushed cacao beans, these raw nibs are perfect for those craving a unique chocolate experience. We've found many dark chocolate lovers quickly falling for these cacao nibs, they're crunchy, a bit bittersweet and are more intense than the chocolate made from them.

Cacao and cannabis are the only two plants known to contain cannabinoids, chemicals that unlock specific receptors in the brain. This results in the feeling of being high or elated. Cacao contains anandamide inhibitors. The body will often release anandamide to cope with the pain of intense exercise (this is frequently called runners high). Cacao also contains high levels of the essential amino acid tryptophan. Getting tryptophan into your system from food produces serotonin which is our "defense shield" against stress. Cacao has been tested to have the highest level of antioxidant flavonoids in any food - more than blueberries, black tea, green tea and red wine. So, cacao helps you feel good while combating stress - oh and it tastes great.

Cacao Nibs are a wonderful taste sensation and can be eaten by themselves or used in a more traditional manner such as added to cakes, cookies, ice cream, pie toppings or in quick bread. For a surprising savory flavor, we've also found these to be marvelous additions to chili, moles and sauces. We even use them in smoothies, to top morning oatmeal, and in salads.
