Theobroma cacao from Peru
“Nutrition of the gods”
Purasana organic cocoa beans are the seed of the Theobroma cacao, a small evergreen tree that grows in tropical climates. The first cocoa beans on European soil came from Mexico. The recipe for cocoa drink was kept secret for over a hundred years. Cocoa is naturally exceptionally rich in nutrients and phytonutrients. Cocoa was undervalued for many years owing to the fat and sugar contained in processed cocoa (chocolate). Cocoa flavonols help maintain endothelium-dependent vasodilation, contributing to a healthy circulation. This effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200 mg of cocoa flavonols.
Cocoa nibs are small pieces of pure, raw cocoa without sugar or flavour enhancers. These cocoa nibs are obtained simply by coarsely grinding fermented and sun-dried cocoa beans.
Rich in iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and copper.

You can add the cocoa nibs to your breakfast, yogurt, ice cream or desserts, or use them as a topping on pastries, for instance.
