Product description

Size:500g

Organic Raw Cacao Nibs. 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 and has for centuries been forefront in native diets. In recent times it has attracted attention because of its nutritional content, and the health benefits associated with its antioxidants.

Sevenhills Wholefoods source their beans from South America, and only those of a premium variety. 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, dried, then peeled and broken into small pieces (nibs). Sevenhills Wholefoods' cacao nibs are raw - processed at temperatures that never exceed 45°C, packed with heat sensitive vitamins and minerals which are often lost in products subject to higher temperatures during production.

Recommended use: cacao nibs are a versatile food that can be mixed in to many dishes, or alternatively eaten as a snack.

Why buy from Sevenhills Wholefoods? Sevenhills Wholefoods source Superfoods of the highest quality and the best prices. Working closely with local farmers, ensuring local communities can flourish and in turn improving the lives of the farmers and their families. Sevenhills Wholefoods is committed in supporting a variety of charities worldwide.

This is the first time I have bought raw cacao. Its been on my wishlist for ages, but they are quite expensive, but finally took the plunge. To be honest I wasnt sure what to expect.

This is a good bag full. The nibs look a little like chocolate curls. BUT be warned they taste nothing like chocolate if you eat them straight out of the bag, much to my daughters shock and disappointment! They are a strong almost raw coffee bean taste! So initally I was a little disappointed, and wasnt sure what to do next....

I have, however, turned my opinion around. I have been adding them to homemade protein balls, for me and the kids. And they are very nice. There are loads of reported benefits, including high antioxidants, high magnesium, so I am keen to keep using. I will be adding them to puddings and smoothies, but the protein balls are a real hit.

These are the first cacao nibs I have tried and I have been pleasantly surprised. While there is some degree of bitterness, I don't find it unpleasant at all and just eat them as they are, a teaspoonful a few times a day, helps with craving for chocolate as well. My new favourite snack is a banana smothered with a bit of peanut butter with cacao nibs sprinkled on top.

First off the main reason this receives a 4 rather than a 5 is due to my belief that it is rather over priced. The only uses I have found for this product are brewing (the primary reason I bought) and smoothies.

On its own it is pretty horrible in all honesty, however if added to smoothies (almost any fruit though banana goes well) it really does taste nice. They do smell pretty strange which was unexpected, at first I thought my beer was off.

With regards to brewing I added 400g to a 16l batch of stout in the 4th day of fermentation until transferring to keg. I found that this added a very pleasant chocolate flavour and aroma if left for a week or so. However, it is a rather expensive way to add a chocolate flavour to your brew so do keep that in mind if you are tempted. Saying that though it did produce my best chocolate stout to date.

Hope this helps!

Very tasty sprinkled over my breakfast and healthy too . The delicious smell of chocolate hits your nose as you open the packet and they are crunchy and bitter sweet not soft surgery sweet like commercial chocolate ( I liken them to nuts for texture ) I love these coco nibs and am completely guilt free eating them ! I am a repeat buyer of this trusted brand and will continue to buy more!

Excellent quality and a reasonable price, I appreciate being able to purchase a chocolate based ingedient that is not cross contaminated with countless allergens.

Perfect as a topper for cereal, ice cream or yoghurt

We have just used these for the first time mixed with raspberries in a smoothy, in a nutribullet. Really gritty and unpleasant. If anyone has any idea if it's user error please let us know, but this is virtually inedible. V unpleasant.

Nothing like a cup of raw organic cacao in warmed milk
Also great other uses, such as adding to milk shakes, cakes, for that chocolate taste, add to smoothies, into ice cream, just about anywhere you want that taste of chocolate in a much more healthy way of course

Great sprinkled on porridge. Can't escape the feeling that I've paid a premium for what is likely considered a waste product elsewhere in the world.
