Produced from whole, raw, organic cacao beans, Organic Life’s cacao Nibs are like “nature’s chocolate chips”, which can be added to smoothies, cereal, granola, trail mixes, yoghurt, ice cream, or alternatively can be eaten straight out of the bag as a tasty, super-food snack. You can use them in recipes for baked goods like cookies just as you would chocolate chips. Cacao Nibs have a strong dark chocolate flavour and can be ground into a rich dark powder using a coffee grinder to make healthy desserts & snacks of all kinds.
With a natural chocolate flavour they are a rich source of fibre, minerals (especially magnesium and iron) and anti-oxidants. In fact cacao is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet.
Being a good source of monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) cacao consumption can improve mood because they allow our “mood enhancing” neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine to remain in the bloodstream longer without being broken down.
In addition Cacao contains anandamide, a neurotransmitter responsible for delivering blissful feelings along with significant quantities of the amino acid tryptophan, which is yet another powerful mood – enhancing nutrient. Last but not least there is evidence suggesting MAO inhibitors diminish appetite and therefore eating cacao, natures natural chocolate, may help one to loose weight by allowing you to eat less.
Organic Life’s cacao nibs are a natural crunchy & chocolatey, incredibly complex and nutritious superfood – just as nature intended.
