Power Super Foods Cacao Beans Raw Organic 250g
Cacao beans are the seeds of an Amazonian fruiting tree (theobroma cacao – meaning "The Food of the Gods") and source of all chocolate and cocoa products. The Mexican Mayan kings drank up to 30 pure chocolate drinks a day to maintain their vigour and valued the bean so highly that it was used as money. Our raw Beans are from the best tasting premium criollo variety.
Suggested Uses: Peel (optional) then eat as is, lightly roast (optional) and grind with coffee, or crush and add to smoothies, ice cream, muesli, cookie batter or trail mix, or substitute in dessert recipes for chocolate chips.
