The possibilities are endless for this crunchy antioxidant pick me up.

Cacao Nibs: Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick

Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut loves Raw Cacao Nibs because they are made from 100% cacao, and they have 0 grams of sugar and 5 grams of fiber in a serving! The antioxidant benefits of dark chocolate come from cacao, too. Typically chocolate bars contain a percentage of cacao, some as little as 10%. By choosing raw cacao nibs, you incorporate 100% cacao into your diet.

Try adding cacao nibs into trail mix or quick breads for a chocolate taste. For a refreshing, antioxidant blast, blend a frozen banana, a splash of low fat or almond milk, and a tablespoon of cacao.

Health Benefits of Cacao:

1) Brain Food: A study led by researchers at the Northumbria University in England examined the effects of cacao consumption on cognitive activity. Subjects who consumed a cacao drink before performing mathematical calculations completed them more quickly and accurately than the control group that received no cacao. The lead professor of the study suggested that the high polyphenol content of cacao may be protective against declining cognitive function.

2) Lower Blood Pressure: Studies from universities throughout the United States have demonstrated that eating unprocessed cacao can support the cardiovascular system and reduce blood pressure. One such study by the University of Utah found that healthy patients who consumed unprocessed cacao experienced a decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure by 5mm within two weeks.

3) Improve Insulin Sensitivity: The flavonols present in organic raw cacao nibs may play an important role in lowering diabetic risk. Researchers at Tufts University and the University of L’Aquilla found that flavonol-rich cacao reduced blood pressure, regulated blood glucose levels, and increased the function of cells that produce insulin.

4) Lift Your Mood: Feeling a little blue? A serving of raw cacao nibs can act as a powerful mood-enhancer. Cacao is packed with compounds that increase levels of endorphins and serotonin in our brain; these are the chemicals that cheer us up, reduce anxiety, and give us a general sense of well-being.

Five Delightful Uses of Cacao Nibs

1) Enjoy them straight or accompanied by your favorite cup of coffee or tea.

2) Make a trail mix by mixing a handful of organic cacao nibs with nuts and dried fruit.

3) Grind a tablespoon of cacao nibs and then blend them into a fruit smoothie for a unique chocolate kick.

4) Incorporate a spoonful of organic cacao nibs into your morning cereal or oatmeal for an antioxidant boost.

5) Substitute part chocolate chips for cocoa nibs in baked goods like brownies or muffins to add a deep chocolate richness.

“No wonder these are said to improve your mood- I had a couple handfuls of the sample (Thank You!!!), and the wonderful flavor of chocolate rests on my tongue, still. These couldn't have come at a better time, as I am dismantling my tomato garden before the freeze, and am a little sad about it! ”

“Just got my NUTTY pkg. Very fast delivery. Other reviewers said it would be. Thank you for my yummy suprise treat. I was a little concerned about the "bitter taste" cacao nibs reviews. I like the taste. They taste like usual nuts to me. Dr. Oz suggested them. I'm glad I ordered from your company! Love the box too...You guys are NUTS! Keep up the great work. ”
