Criollo Cacao

There are three major varieties of Cacao:

  1. Criollo
  2. Forastero
  3. Trinitario

Our cacao nibs are from the Criollo bean, only 5% of the world's cacao is the Criollo tree. The Criollo bean tree is notoriously difficult to cultivate and is susceptible to environmental changes; the Criollo tree is native to South America.

A Refined Chocolate Taste

The Criollo Bean is light pink in colour and has an elegant, delicate flavour rather than the bold, intense chocolate explosion of the Forestero and Trinitario bean.

The refined flavour profile of the Criollo bean has earned it the name 'Prince of Cocoas' - it has become a highly prized commodity and used by the most prestigious chocolatiers around the world.

Raw Cacao Nibs

Due to these cacao nibs being made from the superior quality Criollo Amazonico bean, it is possible to implement a low fermentation process, also cleaning and drying has taken place at low temperatures, this ensures our cacao nibs retain their natural nutrients and delicate chocolate flavour.

Cacao Nutrition Benefits

Used for over 3000 years cacao has a long history as a superfood, ancient civilisations instinctively ate cacao for its positive nutrition and delicious flavour, today we understand that Cacao is a rich source of antioxidants that help support healthy inflammation and contributes to normal blood pressure along with other benefits.

Cacao's Antioxidants

Cacao is a rich source of epicatechin - a natural plant phenol that belongs to the flavan-3-ols group, this group is also referred to simply as flavanols.

Naturally Sweetened With Yacon

We have blended Yacon and Criollo cacao to purify the raw chocolate bite and increasify the nutrition naturally. Yacon root may help support natural weight management and contribute to maintaining healthy blood pressure.

What Is Yacon?

Yacon has the scientific name Smallanthus sonchifolius and is indigenous to South America; the plant produces large tuberous roots which have traditionally been used to sweeten dishes, as well as being a vegetable eaten for sustenance.

Mainly composed of fructooligosaccharides and water, the vast majority of the sugar and carbohydrates yacon contains can't be easily absorbed by the body, preventing sugar being absorbed into the bloodstream results in a low-calorie intake.
