Welcome to Pure Joy Planet!
The original Raw "Chocolate Chips"! These bitter, crunchy nibs can be added to brownies, energy bars, cookies and pies to give them an extra crunch. Eat them as a snack mixed with Goji Berries right out of the bag, or run it through your Champion juicer and add Rapadura to make your own homemade chocolates.
Cacao is considered the new "red wine". That's because it is higher in antioxidant flavonoids than red wine, blueberries, green tea, more than any other food tested! As well, cacao is the most abundant source of Magnesium known. Magnesium is a mineral which works alongside calcium to preserve alkalinity, and is often deficient in our diet. This important mineral helps regulate blood sugar levels, maintains normal blood pressure, keeps heart rhythm steady, and is involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Other minerals found in cacao are are Calcium, Zinc, Iron, Copper, Sulfur, and Potassium.
Aside from eating whole Cacao Beans, Cacao Nibs are the real deal: whole, intact nutrition, straight from the source! Speaking of the source, "Theobroma" Cacao literally means "Food of the Gods". The blissful feelings cacao induces are due to small amounts of a variety of neurotransmitters naturally present such as anandamide (the only other known source is cannabis), and alkaloids such as theobromine, caffeine, and dopamine. Also present as enhancers of overall well-being are beta-carotene (precursor to Vitamin A), lysine (essential amino acid), leucine (essential amino acid), linoleic acid (essential fatty acid), and lipase (fat-digesting enzyme).
When you buy cacao products, you are helping to preserve rainforest because without the rainforest canopy, cacao cannot survive. So you are supporting sustainable agriculture through the purchase of these nibs which are imported from Peru.
