Navita Naturals Introduces Sweet Cacao Nibs

"The cacao bean is a nourishing superfood that has played a fascinating role in the diet, medicine and culture of civilizations for many centuries. Now, Navitas Naturals ( is giving this legendary “Food of the Gods” a delicious modern update by blending their popular raw organic cacao nibs with raw organic Cacao Paste (liquor) and organic sugar cane juice. Navitas Naturals’ Sweet Cacao Nibs are a delicious treat right out of the bag and they also add bold flavor and crunchy texture to a wide variety of recipes.

The organic cacao beans used in Navitas Naturals Sweet Cacao Nibs are hand-selected for quality in the rainforests of Peru, and are then partially fermented to alleviate bitterness. The beans are processed at low temperatures to maintain maximum nutrient retention. Once extracted from the pod-like fruit, the beans are cleansed with purified water, peeled and partially ground to form small “nibs.” The crunchy nibs are then rolled in Navitas Naturals raw organic Cacao Paste (liquor) and then lightly mixed with organic sugar cane juice to create the ultimate ‘real’ chocolate treat."
