What Are Cacao Nibs
Cacao nibs are the part of the cacao bean that is left after the roasting process and extraction of cacao butter.
It is the essence of chocolate in its purest form. Cacao nibs can be eaten plain to enjoy a slightly bitter nutty flavor, or added to foods and recipes.
There are some surprising health benefits to eating cacao nibs. They are packed with iron and fiber, stabilize blood sugar, reduce blood pressure and regulate blood glucose levels.
A superfood, they are also rich in magnesium and high in protein.
