 Product Description

organic-food-federation.png

The beans used for our organic cacao nibs are grown in the Peruvian amazon, the spiritual home of cacao. Our beans are 100% organic raw Criollo cacao beans, prized for their superior flavour.

Our cacao products are neither roasted nor Dutch processed (alkalized), making them raw.

Cacao nibs are dried cacao beans that have been cracked and deshelled. They have a taste similar to dark chocolate and are satisfyingly crunchy - great for baking! Cacao is considered a superfood and is rich in many nutrients Western diets are thought to be deficient in.

Cacao and Peru have a long history together, with the fruit and its beans having been enjoyed by natives long before it was exported worldwide.

Cacao has a few different varieties; however, the Criollo variety is growing rapidly in popularity due to its higher quality resulting from greater fat content. Exquisite Peruvian cacao is well suited to agroforestry systems, which have less environmental impact compared to plantations in West Africa where it is typically grown in direct sunlight with fertilisers. This has led to substantial deforestation and makes Peruvian cacao a more sustainable option.

Almost all of Peru’s cacao is grown by small holders who rely on cacao’s weekly harvest (the main harvest is from April – September, known locally as la cosecha grande) as their main source of income. Their crop is then sold to cooperatives who act as intermediaries; the cacao is then processed in Peru before being trucked to Lima and exported to the UK where we lovingly package it before sending it to you.

None of our cacao products contain any additives or preservatives. This is 100% cacao, nothing added, nothing taken away!

*High street price is based on price in a well known high street health store. Price calculated as equivalent price per gram at time of writing and may change over time without us knowing. Where larger packs were not available on the high street total is calculated from purchasing multiple packs.
