Our raw cacao beans are unprocessed and dried at a low temperature in order to preserve the most beneficial properties from the edible seed as possible. Many enjoy eating the whole raw bean as is, or by coarsely grinding and incorporating into beverage blends and homemade trail mixes.
Cacao beans and nibs contain a number of beneficial constituents, but many of these constituents are destroyed or lessened when processed. Health practitioners recommend that anyone interested in eating cacao for its health benefits use raw, unprocessed cacao beans and nibs rather than processed chocolate.
