BENEFITS OF CACAO NIBS
Cacao nibs are cocoa beans that have been roasted, separated from their husks and broken into smaller pieces.
The use of cacao for health dates back at least 3,000 years. Based on extensive research, the main health benefits of cacao stem from epicatechin, a flavanol found in cacao. The process of manufacturing dark chocolate retains epicatechin, whereas milk chocolate does not contain significant amounts of epicatechin.
Both epidemiological and clinical studies suggest a beneficial effect of dark chocolate on blood pressure, lipids and inflammation. Proposed mechanisms underlying these benefits include enhanced nitric oxide bioavailability and improved mitochondrial structure and function. To get these benefits, the cacao needs to be pure. One of the purest forms is in the beans themselves because they have the least processing, and includes cacao nibs.

Compared to green tea, red wine, and many fruits and vegetables ounce for ounce, the cocoa in dark chocolate has greater flavonoid content.

Perfect I have not been able to buy many products because my little one is allergic to peanuts. It is difficult to find many products locally or even online that has not been exposed or potentially been exposed to peanuts. I enjoyed eating these nibs in everything I can think of without worrying about giving my little one a taste when she asks. Thank you
Wonderful These nibs are wonderful if you enjoy chocolate you should give these a try. They have a depth of flavor I haven't noticed in regular cacao powder. Great price too!

Perfect for my granola I love to put these in my homemade granola, which I make using all Gerbs ingredients. They add a perfect crunch and a nice dark chocolatey flavor.
