Organic cocoa nibs are crunchy, flavorful, and packed with powerful nutrients, antioxidants, and natural mood lifters.

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.

“I received my shipment right on schedule. I haven't tried the guarana yet but I did try the cocoa nibs and the Gogi berries. I have tried Gogi berries in the past and they were really sour these are sweet and delicious. The coca nibs are fantastic and I can't wait to make some yummy treats. I'm going to try the guarana today. I have a feeling I will love that too.
Thanks for fantastic service and awesome products. I will definitely order from you again. ”

“BEST QUALITY Cacao Nibs on the planet! OK, I am a TOTAL Cacao Nib obsessed individual, and I have been purchasing all manner of Cacao Nibs from different sources and of different brands for the last several months. NUTS Online has BY FAR the BEST QUALITY Cacao Nibs out there. Even the brand that Whole Foods carries (which is actually quite deluxe) cannot compare to these delicious nibs.

Why? Well, to JOY is all in the size and overall texture of the nibs themselves. NUTS Online's nibs are dense, richly flavored, generously sized, meaty little nibs that taste incredible, crunchy and satisfying yet won't crack your tooth in half.

The "crappier" brands can have an almost dry, bark-like quality and in some cases, hard little pieces of "shell-like" material are even included with the nibs themselves--hard to distinguish in a mouthful, and guaranteed to send you to the dentist. Careful with your nibs, folks! I'm a nibs from NUTS ONLINE ONLY kind of gal now! THEY ARE THE BEST.”

“The fastest delivery ever, I ordered 7pm last night and it was here first thing in the morning, close to a twelve hour delivery time. Great prices for everything. I am hoping to get healthier from my selection.”

“I have been very happy with every order I have placed with nuts.com. I just ordered the whole wheat fig bars for the first time and I was very surprised how awesome they tasted. Way better than anything at the grocery store! I also buy my cacao nibs and chia seeds here. Oh, don't forget the dried strawberries! Tastes like candy!!!!”
