Product Description

Size Name: 500g

Cacao, or Cocoa, is an evergreen tree, which grows naturally in tropical climates around the world. Its fruit, the Cacao bean, is well-known as the basic ingredient in chocolate. It has for centuries been central to diets in its native areas. In recent times it has attracted attention because of its nutritional richness and the health benefits associated with its antioxidant content. Sevenhills Organics Cacao is grown in Peru. Its seed pods are harvested by hand. They are broken apart and left until the soft flesh surrounding the bean has fermented and run off as liquid. The fermentation process affects the taste of the beans, which lose some bitter flavours. The beans are washed, cleaned and dried. They are then peeled and broken into small pieces (nibs). Our Cacao nibs are packaged in the UK.

Why buy from Sevenhills Organics? Sevenhills Organics only sells superfoods of the highest quality. We source directly from producers, so we're always in touch with where our products are grown and processed.

These certainly aren't for people who think that Cadbury's is chocolate, but if you're reading this it's doubtful you're a fan of sugar and fat. I feel the need to knock a star off for not having any nutritional information on the pack (and not having a website where you can check this out), but the product itself is better than I had hoped. I've taken to nibbling on these during the day and so it's a good thing that you can't eat them in large quantities (they can be quite overpowering). I've also ground them to powder using a coffee grinder and used this to make a very simple protein mousse of which I'm quite proud.

Excellent quality and reasonably priced.
If your taste buds are expecting [name brand] chocolate you'll be very surprised. Cacao is a complex food. It contains fibre, iron, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin C and E and at least 300 other identifiable chemical compounds and a 1,000 more chemical constituents,
Cacao also contains Serotonin, Tryptophan, Anandamide, Phenylethlamine, Dopamine, PEA and MAO inhibitors which all apparently have a positive uplifting effect on brain chemistry.

They are dry and crunchy with a nutty tang but they aren't sweet - I prefer them soaked or cooked in porridge and use them in sauces and stews - Are they a Superfood? Well if you check all those chemicals above and their nutritional value in the human diet then yes.

Nice quality good flavor. We use it in our morning smoothies and it really gives a rich flavor. Don't overuse. It is strong enough that a little goods a long way. This means good value and quality. Excellent product and good service.

In my opinion this is a high quality product.

I would recommend this for the type of person who loves to make smoothies every now and then but I really wouldn't recommend it for the type of person who would want to snack on the Cocoa Nibs or sprinkle it over yogurt. The taste is really bitter and not enjoyable, keep in mind this comes from a guy who loves 80+% chocolate I do have a high tolerance for food but this was just something I could not stomach!

Would only recommend for smoothies.

I kept hearing about the health benefits of raw cacao so I decided to buy these as my first. Well, all I can say is that they're an acquired taste! I love dark chocolate, bitter foods, strong coffee. These are on another level. They don't melt easily. They don't soften easily. They're just really crunchy and bitter. You'll notice as you open the packet - it immediately hits you in the face. I did, however, persevere and found that a spoonful in a yoghurt or over cereal was rather bearable. 1KG was probably the wrong size bag for a first purchase too - it's a huge bag! Other than all of that - a happy customer.

I have been using it in my drinks made in Nutribullet. Haven't noticed any difference in my health, I thought for the first 3 days I didn't crave sweets as much as usually but it didn't last long. All in all seems a good quality product.

Taste a little bitter but they are gorgeous on cereal, apple crumble or with a protein shake. A must buy!
