Our cocoa nibs are produced from unflavored and unsweetened Theobrama Cocao (cocoa) seeds. They are not roasted nor are they processed in anyway. We source them this way intentionally so that all their naturally occurring benefits are guaranteed to remain intact.
A lot of research has been done on the health benefits of consuming this type of cocoa seeds. The main topic of late has been cocoa's ability to lower and or maintain bad cholesterol levels. There are some really "good reads" on the web about this heath benefit, we suggest doing some research if this topic is of interest to you.
Please note, cocoa nibs contain a substance called theobromine which causes a similar reaction in the body as caffeine. This product is food grade.
