These are our wonderful cocoa/cacao nibs from Peru. Produced from the great tasting criollo variety of cocoa bean, the beans are simply cracked and winnowed (shells removed) leaving the raw nibs. Cocoa/cacao is rich in plant poly-phenols. Polyphenols are a group of plant-based micronutrients and Cacoa is classified as a flavonoid within the Polyphenols group. These flavonoids have antioxidant properties, in other words, they contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Cocoa/cacao also contains minerals such as magnesium, iron, potassium and zinc.

A note on the difference on cocoa and cacao – there is none! Raw food marketers unfortunately promote the idea that cocoa is roasted and processed while cacao is raw and super healthy. In Europe we have a cocoa industry, trading cocoa beans and cocoa products. Elsewhere they trade in cacao. It is commonly held that a historic misspelling of the word cacao resulted in the anglicized word cocoa being used in the UK and parts of Europe, see link here. To avoid confusion we now label our products as cocoa/cacao.  We sell both roasted and “raw” cocoa/cacao products.
