ESSENCE

Cacao nibs are the purest form of chocolate, made from crushed and lightly processed cacao beans. The reason that these nibs are so highly sought after is their uniquely potent flavor, as well as their additive-free nature. The minimal amount of processing also allows these nibs to retain nearly the full nutritional value of the cacao beans, which are packed with antioxidants and other nutrients.

Nutritionally speaking, cacao nibs are very high in dietary fiber, with nearly 9 grams in a 1-ounce serving. These nibs are also great sources of iron and magnesium, along with high levels of polyphenolic compounds (antioxidants), monounsaturated fats, and protein. In terms of calories, these nibs contain about 200 calories per cup, although most people would never consume that many nibs in one sitting.
