Cacao Nibs have a mild cocoa aroma. They are sweet with a cocoa taste in the beginning and a chocolate finish. Nibs are loaded with nutrients and powerful plant compounds that have been shown to benefit health in many ways. They are rich in minerals including iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese and copper. Magnesium is often lacking in our diets and helps over 300 different enzyme reactions in our body. Phosphorus, magnesium and manganese are vital for healthy bones. Copper and iron are needed for producing red blood cells which supply oxygen to our body. Cacao Nibs are a good source of antioxidants which may help to prevent cancer, heart disease and diabetes, and to protect brain health. They have anti-inflammatory properties. Nibs may boost immune health, help with digestion, balance cholesterol levels and reduce high blood pressure. Cacao Nibs, which are pieces of cacao beans, do contain caffeine and about 4 calories in a teaspoon. They are the raw form of chocolate and contain no added sugars as even dark chocolate does. Cacao beans are actually the fruit of the cacao tree. Cacao Nibs can be consumed as a tea, in smoothies, baked goods, snack mix, dairy-free chocolate ice cream...
