Cacao is the raw base for chocolate manufacture. However, in its own right it is a truly remarkable food and can make a powerful and delicious contribution to a healthy diet. For too long this nutritional phenomenon has been ignored, hidden behind the fat and sugar of its processed relative, chocolate. However, awareness of its nutritional profile is growing, and increasing numbers of people are putting this fantastic food at the core of a healthy diet. Rainforest Foods uses Criollo Cacao, often referred to as the 'Queen of Cacao' for its high quality.
50% of Cacao’s mass is made up of three fats. However, they are all harmless to us. One is Oleic acid, the fat found in olive oil. The others – Stearic and Palmitic acids – are believed not to cause cholesterol buildup. The harmful effects of chocolate are caused by the fat and sugars added during its manufacture. Rainforest Foods Cacao nibs are unprocessed. They are Cacao beans, simply broken into small pieces. Optimum nutrition is retained.
Organic raw Criollo Cacao nibs (cracked Cacao beans) from Peru.
About the company
Rainforest Foods is a company with one aim: to bring you the finest of nature’s foods. We manufacture them in the form of dietary supplements for one fundamental reason: because while relatively few people live near the rainforests, mountains or islands where many superfoods grow, very many people live modern lives where balanced meals at regular intervals are not always possible. We search the globe for foods with unusually high nutritional value, which we process and bring to you in easily managed forms such as capsules, tablets and powder. Superfood supplements can help us balance and support modern diets.
