 Product Description

organic-food-federation.pngNote: The sack option is a single sack of cacao nibs. It does not come in individual 1kg packets.

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.

    Excellent value for money, far better than other high street retailers and delivery is excellent too. Ordered online and it arrived the very next day


  3. Great nibs!

    Posted by CarinA on 3rd Feb 2017

    I trust that what information you print on your website, is actually true. I am trying to buy as much in the way of organic food as possible, these days. So to find nibs I can use in my gluten-free, grain-free brownies, is a treat.
    They add that little 'something' to the brownies.


  4. Would recommend

    These are realy nice nibs. have had better ones but they were way more expensive and came in small bags so get through real fast!

    Makes any breakfast cereal way more exciting!!


  5. Tasty & healthy snack, incredible value!

    Posted by Tom M on 30th Mar 2016

    First tried cacao nibs from a health store after reading about the health benefits of raw cacao, very tasty so looked for a cheaper alternative on the internet. Found these at a 1/5th of the price, was originally unsure as they were so much cheaper, though on receiving them I found the quality/taste identical to the more expensive option. I now swear by them! Highly recommended!
