Whole Organic Cacao Nibs
Cacao Nibs Aka Cacao beans, seeds or nuts, Cacao Nibs originated in South America where they were revered by ancient cultures and often used as currency! Cacao is the most complex food substance on Earth and has the highest antioxidant concentration of any food.

The Cacao Bean is the dried and fully fermented seed of the Theobroma Cacao tree from which cocoa solids and cocoa butter are extracted.
The raw beans are selected for the finest quality and fermented to reduce their initial bitterness. After cleaning the dried beans in natural water, they are peeled and their core extracted to be broken into “nibs”. The production process employed helps to preserve the nutritional value of the cacao without using additives.

Organic Raw Cacao Nibs are a 100% organic, high fibre source of dietary fat with a great chocolate taste.

Storage:
“How long do spices last?”

Depends on both the type of spice and the conditions under which they are stored. Correctly dried and stored spices, do not actually spoil. But over time, they will lose their potency, aroma and flavour.

As a general rule, whole dried spices (not been ground) will last much longer than ground and can last for 1 to 3 years. Pre-ground spices do still always work very well but if possible buy the spice whole and grind it just before you use it. It is also never a bad idea to freeze any spare, try to remove as much air as possible and make sure it is kept sealed in the freezer to avoid moisture.

Here are some tips for maximising the shelf life of your spices:
• Store in an airtight container.
• Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
• Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
• Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
