Due to its high nutritional content and exceptional benefits, cacao was believed to be the food of the Gods by the Ancient Incas. Peruvian Harvest Cacao Nibs are made from select certified organic criollo cacao beans, a unique variety native from Peru. Made with their unique fermentation and slow drying processes, a flavour and aroma is obtained like no other.
Note: Criollo accounts for only 5% of the world’s cacao production and is renowned for its rich and bitter flavour which also represents its high antioxidant content.
Compare Peruvian Harvest Criollo Cacao with other popular brands of raw cacao and you will see why this product offers exceptional value.
If you are following a raw cacao recipe, you are advised to start with slightly less amount than suggested due to this product’s more intense and bitter chocolate flavour. And if more sweetener is desired, we recommend prebiotic low GI Peruvian Harvest Yacon syrup. (The prebiotic can help unlock the polyphenols in the cacao.)
