Sevenhills Wholefoods Organic Cacao / Cocoa Nibs
About Sevenhills Wholefoods Organic Cacao / Cocoa Nibs
Cacao, or Cocoa, is an evergreen tree which grows naturally in tropical climates worldwide, used in diets for centuries, and more recently known for its nutritional content. Seed pods are harvested by hand, broken apart and left until the soft flesh of the bean has fermented and run off as liquid, causing the beans to lose some of their bitter taste. The beans are cleaned, dried, peeled, then broken into small pieces or nibs. Cacao nibs can be eaten as a healthy snack with a bitter taste, added to smoothies, desserts and cereals, and used as a baking ingredient.
Our cacao powder is sourced from organic producers. Organic means working with nature and is better for the environment – lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land. Organic food comes from trusted sources, all organic farms and food companies are inspected at least once a year and the standards are laid down in law.
