Containing over 300 active substances, including phenyl, ethylamine and serotine, cacao beans are the raw base for chocolate manufacture. Originating from the tropical climates in South America, the Theobroma cacao tree is sacred amongst the Mayans and Aztecs. On its own, the cacao beans are a fine “superfood” as they foster a variety of antioxidants and other nutrients. Produced by organic growers in Peru, cacao beans contain more antioxidants than red wine and 3 more than green tea, cacao beans embody a rich source of minerals. Harvested by hand as pods, the raw beans are selected for the finest quality and fermented to reduce their initial bitterness. After cleaning the dried beans in natural water, they are peeled and their core extracted to be broken into “nibs”. The production process fully preserves the nutritional value of the cacao without any additives. Peruvian Cacao Nibs are certified organic by the Soil Association.
