Meet The Real Chocolate
The bean of the cacao plant is the natural, nutritional, and flavorful ingredient source for all chocolate and cocoa products. As chocolate in its real and original state, Navitas Naturals Cacao Beans can be eaten by themselves as a powerful snack experience, and are fantastic when combined with something sweet -- such as a drizzle of agave nectar or dried fruit. Raw cacao beans can also serve as an excellent addition to trail mixes, granola, and ground into desserts. Enjoyed by South American cultures for thousands of years, raw cacao beans offer a way to enjoy chocolate in itŐs most ancient, pure, and invigorating form. As a great antioxidant-rich superfood, a fantastic fiber source, and concentrated source of essential minerals, there really is no reason not to enjoy chocolate!
Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals cacao beans are hand selected for quality, partially fermented to alleviate bitterness, and processed at low temperatures for maximum nutrient retention. Once extracted from the pod-like fruit, purified water is then used to cleanse the beans. These whole beans are unpeeled and do not contain sugar or any other additives. Navitas Naturals Cacao Beans are simply 100% pure cacao that is certified organic, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and raw.
