Cacao Nibs

Shelled and crushed cocoa beans. Raw and dried with warm (not hot) air. They can be further roasted to acquire different roasting strengths for different flavor profiles. Shanti's cacao nibs have a very strong, delicious chocolate aroma and a pleasant semi-bitter flavor, characteristic of the pure Arriba bean.

An excellent source of antioxidants, fiber, iron and magnesium. Crunchy but not too hard, excellent as a snack or a topping on smoothies, hot chocolate, latte or baked goodies.

Ethically sourced in partnership with small farmers and co-ops.
Kosher Pareve
Allergen Free

I love eating these and adding to tea and brownies. Rich flavour and didn’t get bits of shells or husks in them like I have with other brands.
