Chocolate has been long considered "the food of the gods". It has been used for centuries to boost energy and enhance mood. There are over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, chocolate remains one of the most complex and pleasurable foods known to man. Chocolate contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), and tryptophan (a natural anti-depressant). Raw chocolate makes you happy! Cocoa nibs are crushed cocoa seeds from the Theobroma cacao tree and have a chocolate flavor without sweetness. They are the raw, fermented cacao bean that has had the outer peeling removed. Roasted cocoa nibs are produced by first breaking the unshelled cacao beans down into chopped bits of cocoa seeds. Unlike the raw variety, these nibs go through an additional roasting step to result in a more flavorful and less bitter-tasting cocoa nib. The Raw Nibs have a slightly more bitter flavor but retain all of the temperature-sensitive elements like the naturally occurring enzymes. The roasted version has a more chocolate-like flavor from the roasting process. Roasted & Raw Organic Cocoa Nibs are widely used throughout the food industry in restaurants, baking, packaged goods, and grocery stores. They are a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber; and are commonly used in various snacks, desserts, trail mixes, granola recipes, and chocolate-flavored beverages.
