Loving Earth’s raw cacao nibs are an heirloom variety, criollo amazonico, grown by the indigenous people of the Peruvian Amazon in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. For centuries, they’ve tended their cacao in the shade of taller trees such as mango and avocado in a system of traditional permaculture that leaves the rainforest undamaged and does not necessitate artificial pesticides or fertilizers.
Loving Earth handles its cacao with care, fermenting it at low temperatures to preserve its nutrients and refraining from the antioxidant-destroying roasting process. Cacao nibs are simply cacao beans with the skin removed, and ten or so are all you need for a satisfying snack that’s sure to improve both your mood and your energy level.
