Theobroma: Food of the Gods

Criollo cacao is revered as the “Food of the Gods”, traditionally used in Mayan ceremonies and rituals to promote vitality and purification. Considered to be nature’s chocolate, Viva Naturals Cacao Nibs deliver unrivaled flavor and aromatic precursors among all variations of cacao.

The Goodness of Viva Naturals Cacao Nibs

Cardiovascular Health
Polyphenols, catechins and procyanidins naturally present in cacao promote cardiovascular health by offering defense against the effects of oxidation. These powerful compounds help maintain healthy cholesterol levels within the normal range.

Minerals
Unlike processed chocolate, our cacao retains essential minerals like magnesium, chromium, calcium and iron. An ounce provides roughly 20% of your daily recommended intake of magnesium per day.

Theobromine
Compared to caffeine, this powerful compound provides a stimulant-free natural energy source. Experience the benefits of theobromine without the dreaded caffeine crash.

The Viva Naturals Difference
Viva Naturals uses the finest variation of cacao from sacred Peruvian Criollo beans, highly prized as the most superior and rarest sources of cacao. Our Criollo cacao beans are naturally fermented, a crucial step in initiating exquisite chocolate taste and subtle bitter qualities. Criollo beans lack the tart and often, unpleasant, properties commonly associated with inferior cacao varieties. Our delectable little nibs help satisfy guilty chocolate pleasures without sacrificing rich chocolate flavor. Viva Naturals Organic Cacao Nibs are certified non-GMO and are sustainably sourced from Peruvian farmers in accordance with fair trade practices.

Product Features

  • HIGHLY PRIZED CACAO BEANS – Viva Naturals Organic Raw Cacao Nibs are sourced from the most superior variation of cacao beans, the Criollo. These beans offer exquisite chocolate aroma and taste, without the bitterness traditionally found in raw cacao.
  • NUTRIENT-DENSE SUPERFOOD – Cacao is especially rich in health-promoting flavonoids, fatty acids and minerals such as iron, calcium and magnesium. These nutrients contribute to the maintenance of good health and overall well-being.
  • ALL-NATURAL ENERGY ENHANCER – Theobromine, a powerful stimulant naturally present in cacao, helps to maintain energy levels all throughout the day unlike the dreaded caffeine crash. Incorporate raw cacao nibs into your daily morning routine for a jitter-free energy boost.
  • VERSATILE KITCHEN INGREDIENT – Use cacao nibs in cookies as an alternative to chocolate chips, make healthy granola bars, add to smoothies or even sprinkle nibs on salads for a savory treat.
  • Viva Naturals Organic Cacao Nibs are certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and are free from unwanted pesticides and harmful impurities. Note: Since our all-natural Cacao Nibs come from crushed cacao beans, your pouch may contain a few stems and bits of hard shells -similar to unpopped popcorn kernels. When sprinkling on foods, keep an eye out for them and discard.

Try a Different Brand Instead… I was really disappointed with these cacao nibs. The flavor was fine, but about 1/3 or slightly more were pieces of bark or other bits that were not edible. It was frustrating sorting out which pieces I could and could not add to my smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, etc. I read that in other reviews, but it was so highly rated I figured I would give it a try. Well, I’m here to tell you don’t waste your time or money. Again, the actual nibs were good which is why I’m giving it 2 stars, but…

Check your recent purchases – bag underfilled, only 10 ounces, not 16; resolved by company, as well as Amazon First, let me say I like the product and will order again if the issue I experienced is corrected by the brand (now called Viva Naturals) and their co-packer. I received a bag in my most recent order (March 18) and when I opened the bag, it not only felt light but was only slightly over half full. It was like the old days of opening a potato chip bag and finding out it was mostly air sealed in. I have a kitchen scale, so I weight the bag (minus the 1/4 inch torn off the top to expose the ziploc…

Bullet-proof your cocoa My morning drink is a cocoa concoction I make with an immersion blender. I have been using NOW brand organic cocoa for at least 10 years but with so many new ones on the market I tried three new brands. I do transfer this to another tin, so don’t know how the bag holds up. This brand is the one I have decided on for a variety of reasons, but especially for its clean cocoa taste, no bitterness, and it does not settle to the bottom of my cup.For anyone interested, I use a heaping tsp,…
