Raw & Organic Cacao nibs from Raw Living is chocolate in it's purest form, the whole cacao bean, broken
The cacao bean is what all chocolate is made from. Chocolate bars get a bad press because of all the ingredients cacao solids are usually mixed with - the refined sugars, hydrogenated fats, and dairy products.
Cacao is the seed of a fruit of an Amazonian tree that was brought to Central America during or before the time of the Olmecs. Cacao beans were so revered by the Mayans and Aztecs that they used them as money; for example, one fish was worth three cacao beans, or one avocado was worth one cacao bean! In 1753 Carl von Linnaeus, the 18th-century Swedish scientist, thought that cacao was so important that he named the genus and species of this tree himself. He named this tree, Theobroma Cacao, which literally means "cacao, the food of the gods".
