Loving Earth Raw Organic Cacao Nibs are single origin, certified organic, fairly traded Raw Cacao Nibs from Satipo in the Peruvian Amazon. Jam packed with antioxidants, magnesium and bliss nutrients that can help keep you young, healthy and happy.

Loving Earth Cacao Nibs are an original heirloom criollo amazonico Cacao from Satipo in Peru. By buying this Raw Cacao you are supporting a sustainable project that is rescuing this original heirloom variety of Cacao, which has been grown by the Ashaninka and Chene people of the Peruvian Amazon for thousands of years.

These certified organic indigenous growers use an age old system of permaculture, where the Cacao trees are planted under the native forest canopy, along with other fruit trees, such as mango, avocado and papaya. All of these trees add their distinctive nuances to the fine multi-floral flavor of this exquisite Cacao.

Magnesium for the Heart and Brain

Raw cacao is the primary dietary source of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in western civilisation. Magnesium is the most important mineral for a healthy functioning heart. It also plays a key role in producing energy for the neurons in the brain from glucose. So when there is an abundance of magnesium the brain works with clarity and focus.

Mood elevators and Anti-depressants

Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine (PEA), four well-studied neurotransmitters, which are associated with feelings of well being and help alleviate depression. Both PEA and Anandamide (the bliss chemical) are found in abundance in the brains of happy people and are particularly released when we are feeling happy. Both of these nuerotransmitters are present in raw cacao in large enough quanitities to affect the brain and lift our moods. Cacao also contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) that keep neurotransmitters in the bloodstream for longer without being broken down.

We have all experienced the positive feelings associated with eating chocolate, now we have access to pure raw unadalterated chocolate in the form of Organic Raw Cacao. This is much more potent than the processed chocolate and doesn't have any sugar or dairy products blocking the positive effects of all the goodies in Raw Cacao. My experience is that eating 11 Raw Cacao Beans is enough to experience a blissful sense of well being.

Directions

Eat a handful whenever you want to feel energized and happy. Goes well in trail mix, especially with Goji Berries.

This product is very good, I use it in my health balls, on porridge and on apple crumbles. Very good value for money too.

YUMMY! very nice to add to yoghurt, in baking, in snack packs with nuts or dried berries. gives it a good crunch!

Small, dark, a bit like soft wood chips. Not the usual chocolate sensation, much more bitter, but there's an after taste that is chocolate for sure. Have only tried them "raw" and they combine well with Goji berries. Definite improvement in energy levels once you've had some. Looking forward to trying them in baking.

Wow - what a horrible, bitter taste... Review by

Wow - what a horrible, bitter taste. Sorry! Nothing like chocolate. I was just about to tip the lot in the bin, some have already gone, but I thought I shouldn't waste $20 so I've kept them. Not sure how I'm going to try and eat them, but I'll give it a go, seeing as they are supposed to be so good for you. But 11 raw cacao beans to make you feel good? - how many little bits is that? Must be a couple of handfuls. I don't think so.

Having heard about Cacao nibs but never having tried them I have been pleasantly surprised! They are a bit bitter but I really enjoy the crunch they give to my breakfast, and knowing the nutritional benefits I am getting makes it all the more better.

This product can be likened in taste to plain unsweetened Cocoa powder steeped in Whiskey. If that sounds like something you like you will enjoy this. I don't mind it as I prefer whiskey over other spirits however it is not what I expected it also does not have a melt in your mouth, quality I like in chocolate, I will persevere with it as I am on a clean eating diet.

Obviously the taste is nothing like a standard sugar laden chocolate bar. Once used to the bitterness i find them really nice to add to baking and in yogurt for a crunch, interesting flavour burst and for health benefits
