Organic Raw Cacao Beans
Cacao has been enjoyed for its health and invigorating properties in South American cultures for thousands of years. This bag contains 100% pure cacao beans that are certified organic, kosher, non-gmo, gluten-free and raw.
The bean of the cacao plant is the nutritional and flavorful source for all chocolate and cacao products. Cacao contains a naturally rich supply of antioxidants and is an excellent source of dietary fiber. It is also known to be one of the highest dietary sources of magnesium and possesses many other essential minerals in significant quantities. Our cacao beans are dried at low temperatures to protect these nutrients.
The mission of Navitas Naturals is to provide premium organic superfoods that increase energy and enhance health. Our products are of the highest quality, sourced directly from farmers, cultivated sustainably and in accordance with fair trade practices.

I've never tasted cacao beans before. I think they should be exactly like these. These ones are very fresh, with rich flavour. The taste is mainly bitter. The skin of the beans is thin, and is shelled well not always. I need a small knife to put it away. Some beans crumble at once after shelling. So this snack nedds to be prepared before eating (shelled). That's why I like cacao nibs more, espesially sweet nibs by Navitas Naturals. Won't by again: I just wanted to know, what are whole cacao beans and I'm not impressed by them.
Like all navitas products this one is very good quality too, you can just tell by the strong smell as soon as you open the bag. Peeled and ate about three quaters of the bag of these before I realised you could eat them with the skin on. Just go ahead and eat with the skin on as this saves time peeling and they are just as nice. Another navitas product I will be back for again.I love the fact that thanks to IHERB Irish customers can buy this brand, the only other alternative was going to the states once a year a packing a suitcase with lovely navitas products.

This is the only website where I found raw Chocolate that was not cooked. They look almost look like almonds and don't crumble when eaten.

The bag that I've got had about 30% rancid beans... I expected better quality.

As an addition to granola or in a home-made trail mix, cacao beans are excellent. I recommend Navitas Naturals!
