What are Cacao nibs and why are they good for you?

Cacao has a high level of flavonoids, also known as antioxidants. The levels are much higher than other antioxidant foods such as green tea or red wine. Cacao is the purest form of chocolate you can get, which means it is less processed than cocoa or chocolate. Cacao also has a high magnesium content, which is a very important mineral needed by the body. The Cacao fruit tree (Theobroma Cacao) grows cacao pods which contain the cacao seeds. Cacao nibs are simply the cacao seeds that have been chopped up into small pieces.

  • Enjoy them as they are while watching your favourite Netflix series.

Why choose VAICACAO nibs?

VAICACAO source their nibs directly from their trusted suppliers to guarantee quality and proper agricultural practices. They monitor the harvesting, fermentation and drying processes making sure the best sustainable methods are used. The Cacao beans are gently roasted, then a winnowing machine is used to remove the shells from the beans just leaving the nibs behind. Each batch is made, stored and transported appropriately to warehouses in the Netherlands and Italy so they can easily be shipped, guaranteeing freshness and quality. 

VAICACAO aims to unite two continents: Central America and Europe and the passion for high quality sustainable Cacao nibs. 

Also, 1 euro from each product sold is put towards their Foundation which helps to support sustainable development in the Cacao plantations and local rural development.
