Origin of Cacao nibs

With the majority of Cacao coming from Western Africa and Latin America, it's Latin name, Theobroma, correctly translates to "Food of the Gods". This is not surprising considering its high levels of antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, iron, copper and manganese. Check out my blog on the benefits of Cacao and how it is not the same as cocoa!

It is such a valuable Superfood that the ancient Mayans and Aztecs used Cacao beans as currency!
