Cacao comes from the seeds of the cacao tree, also known as Theobroma cacaoOrganic Raw Cacao is the source of the original natural chocolate. The cacao fruit tree produces cacao pods, which are cracked open to release cacao beans. We are all familiar with the cocoa powders, but How familiar are you with Cacao Nibs?

The Cacao beans found inside the fruit of the Cacao tree are broken into crunchy edible pieces known as Cacao Nibs.

Cacao Nibs-A healthy option

Organic Cacao is the naturally occurring form of chocolate that you can consume. One of the reasons why it is a better choice is because of the fact that it is less processed, is in a raw state, and contains no added sugars. The purest form of Cacao is thought to be rich in anti-oxidant compounds with many health benefits. It is a good source of Protein, Fibre, and Minerals like Iron, Calcium, and Magnesium.

Iron deficiency or Anaemia is one common thing that brings fatigue and malaise. If you are a vegan and looking for a good source of iron, Cacao is the best. A very important consideration with iron is its absorption and to ensure better absorption pair it with a good source of Vitamin C.

Raw Organic Cacao is also a plant-based food that contains a high source of magnesium. Magnesium is an important nutrient required by the body to stay healthy. The fiber and protein found in Cacao helps to support your weight management by making you feel fuller. The flavanol content in cacao makes it a superfood.
