    Navitas Naturals - Cacao Raw Chocolate Nibs Certified Organic - 4 oz.

    Nature’s Chocolate Chip Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Cacao Nibs. Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs are the partially ground cacao beans that are the natural source of all chocolate products. And though the Mayans may have touted cacao as the “Food of the Gods,” we’ve got dessert on our minds. With their crunchy texture and intense flavor, our cacao nibs are healthy, gourmet, and a delicious addition to all kinds of treats. From adding them into a brownie batter, sprinkling on ice cream, or even just tossing into a trail mix, there is virtually no wrong way to add more of this “real chocolate” into your life. Plus, with cacao’s soaring levels of antioxidants, and trace minerals like magnesium and iron, you can feel good in every way about enjoying this chocolatey superfood.

    Source and Processing
    Navitas Naturals cacao beans are hand selected for quality, partially fermented to alleviate bitterness, and processed at low temperatures for maximum nutrient retention. Once extracted from the pod-like fruit, purified water is then used to cleanse the beans where they are peeled and partially ground to form small pieces or “nibs.” Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs contain 100% pure cacao that is certified organic, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and raw.

    Cacao “Nibs are certified organic, raw, peeled cacao beans, the basic ingredient used by makers of fine chocolate. Our Cacao nibs are easy to eat on their own, added to smoothie and shakes, try them blended with Maca Power for extra energizing effects. They can also be used to make the best ever chocolate chip ice cream!

    Navitas Naturals' mission is to provide premium organic power foods that increase energy and enhance health. Navitas Natural products are of the highest quality, sourced directly from farmers, cultivated sustainably and in accordance with fair trade practices.

    Organic Raw Cacao Nibs Benefits:

    • Flavanols
    • Polyphenols
    • Magnesium
    • Antioxidant
    • Iron

    Cacao (k?-kau, ka-kow): the dried seeds of a South American evergreen tree (Theobroma cacao of the family Sterculiaceae), which are most commonly used in making cocoa, chocolate, and cocoa butter. Also called cacao bean, and cocoa bean.

    The Truth About Vitamin C In Cacao:
    Despite the popular reports circulating the internet, the honest truth remains: even when processed at low temperatures (i.e. "raw"), there is no vitamin C (ascorbic acid) present in cacao.

    Back in 2004, Navitas Naturals lab tests directly looked for vitamin C content in raw cacao, but came up negative. Despite these results, the current media blitz brought us back again for another round of lab testing of our best-selling raw cacao products (beans, nibs and powder) for vitamin C. This time, we used two different laboratories instead of one, and utilized three different analytical methods: High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Capilary Electrophoresis (CE) with UV detection, and Titration.

    Though all three methods have their place in the scientific community, Titration is the most commonly used method in the food industry when determining vitamin C (ascorbic acid) content. However, there is a critical detail within the Titration method many companies miss when testing raw cacao. The method of Titration is unable to differentiate the vitamin C (ascorbic acid) from the vitamin’s analogs. The result is what is known as a "false positive."

    This is why, at Navitas Naturals, they use HPLC when testing raw cacao’s vitamin C content. The HPLC method looks directly for vitamin C (ascorbic acid), and not just the analogs. Additionally, after sending samples of our products to another lab to test using the CE method, the reports returned consistent the HPLC results.

    Navitas Naturals have now also tested one of the largest raw cacao brands in the United States using the Titration and HPLC methods. And yet again the results confirm our previous conclusion that raw cacao has no vitamin C (ascorbic acid) present.

    Cacao is a tremendously beneficial superfood, containing a wide spectrum of minerals and phytonutrients. It is important to be clear however, vitamin C is not amongst these nutrients.

    Food of the Gods
    Cacao has long been enjoyed for its healthful and invigorating properties in Mexican, Central, and South American cultures. In fact, Mayan civilizations associated cacao with the food that their gods chose to consume and thrive upon. So impressed were the Mayans with cacao’s taste (and its ability to promote energy), that cacao paste was frequently used in sacred rituals, with an annual festival held devoted entirely to honoring the “cacao god.” Today, we continue to celebrate the bean of the cacao plant as the nutritional and flavorful source for all chocolate and cocoa products.

    The Power of Cacao
    Cacao contains a naturally rich supply of antioxidants, and is also an excellent source of dietary fiber. In addition, cacao is known to be one of the highest dietary sources of magnesium, contains an impressively high iron content, and also possesses many other essential minerals in significant quantities.

    For the Love of Chocolate
    Ask most people to think about chocolate, and watch a smile instantly appear. Being the ingredient that all chocolate is made from, raw cacao can take commercialized “chocolate” to a whole new level through the alchemy of homemade chocolate confections. Great for both the true chocolateer and health seeker alike, try raw cacao paired with sweet foods of any kind (including raw nectars and syrups, dried fruit, or as a special addition to a dessert recipe) and experience cacao’s beloved chocolate intensity instantly come to life.

    Navitas Naturals' mission is to provide premium organic power foods that increase energy and enhance health. Navitas Natural products are of the highest quality, sourced directly from farmers, cultivated sustainably and in accordance with fair trade practices.
    Suggested Use
    To get the desired health enhancement, it is recommended to consume one ounce of Cacao Nibs per day.  Cacao Nibs are easy to eat on their own or blended with smoothies, shakes and coffee. Try the nibs with ice cream and desserts.

      I have no idea what this product is good for. Other than an interesting crunchy texture, these nibs have no flavor. As for their supposed anti-oxidant benefits, I suggest reading the Wikipedia entry for antioxidants and some of the studies it references. There is as much evidence for no or adverse health benefits as for any vague health improvement. The studies people seem to adduce as proving positive outcomes of using antioxidants are epidemiological and so are unable to draw any definite conclusions about their positive virtues. I suggest trying something else for a chocolate flavor, like this company's chocolate drops, in moderation.

      Fantastic product. Gets ground in my coffee grinder and powder added to my foods. It is not sweet so it will not add sweetness to foods. Great as is for adding to raw food brownies. A fantastic addition to foods but in my opinion not to be eaten straight out of the bag.
