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, vegan and raw.
The bean of the cacao plant is the nutritional and flavorful source for all chocolate and cocoa 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.

Do the research, raw cocoa beans in their natural form (like these) are superb for well being, but I didn't take notice of the high fat content so make sure you take that into consideration. Of course, these contain the "good fats", but I just had to make some adjustments to my diet to be sure when I mix these in my smoothies that I'm wathching my fat intake each day. I'm really noticing a change in my energy levels when I drink this with my Hemp protein/Raw Cocoa Powder/Fruit smoothie in the mornings.

These are too bitter for me and a real hassel to peel the skins off.
learning to love them...

At first we tried to eat the whole bean. My partner could stomach them, but the bitterness was too much for me. So I smashed em, and peeled them shell off and mixed em with goji berries and a drop of honey or agave and finding them to be a delicious snack. I continue my trek of learning to love cacao in it's natural form. Just graduating to 87% cacao chocolate bars...I'm certain I will get there soon!
