    Question: What are Cacao Nibs?

    AnswerThe base of everything chocolate - a cacao nib is a cacao bean that’s been chopped and broken into very small pieces. Cacao Nibs contain high amounts of theobromine which has similar effects to caffeine. They also contain a rich supply of antioxidants, dietary fiber, magnesium, potassium and are low in carbohydrates and sugar.

    Healthworks Cacao Nibs are grown and harvested sustainably on small organic farms and come to you in their purest, most nutrient-rich state. They are 100% USDA certified organic, pure, and raw.  

     

    Question: Do they taste like chocolate chips or dark chocolate?

    Answer: Raw, organic cacao nibs can have a bitter, dark chocolate taste when eaten by themselves. Since it is raw it does not have sugar added to it nor does it go through any unhealthy processing that strips it of its many natural health benefits.

    If you're not into dark chocolate like flavor, there are still other ways to incorporate it into your diet. You can use it in smoothies or recipes that call for chocolate chips which can help mask the bitter taste a bit.
