Description

Cocoa Nibs are a new way of consuming chocolate in its purest and healthiest state. They are chunks of 100% roasted cocoa. They have a bitter, intense chocolate flavor and a crunchy texture. It is a powerful antioxidant! Unlike chocolate, cocoa nibs retain all the nutritional benefits of cocoa: - Powerful antioxidant: Rich in Polyphenols, particularly flavonoids (plant-derived compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties) that help innate and acquired immunity. They are responsible for the bitter and astringent taste of cocoa. - Excellent source of fiber, proteins and healthy fats, nutrients that help promote satiety, regulating appetite. - It has the ability to improve the lipid profile, increasing good cholesterol (HDL) and reducing oxidation of bad cholesterol. - Tryptophan, present in cocoa, is an essential amino acid precursor of serotonin, our happiness hormone and a neurotransmitter necessary for the production of melatonin, the hormone responsible for inducing sleep and rest. - They are rich in many minerals, such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese and copper. The cocoa pods are harvested and the grades are immediately removed from the cob. The beans are covered by a white pulp, which is slowly removed through a fermentation process for approximately 5 days. The beans are then dried in the sun for another 6 days or so. Afterwards, the cocoa beans are roasted and then crushed into small nuggets of crunchy consistency and loaded with flavor and nutrients. This makes them very versatile in the way they can be consumed. Latin Foods Nibs come from the Peruvian Amazon jungle, specifically from the department of San Martin, in the surroundings of the city of Moyobamba. It is a region with a soil rich in nutrients and a climate conducive to top quality agriculture. In this region we can find coffee and cocoa of worldwide recognition. Its crunchy consistency, its bitter chocolate flavor and its great nutritional value make it a very versatile ingredient. Here are some examples: 1. Topping Add a sprinkling of Nis de Cacao to anything you can think of! From a delicious acai bowl to an ice cream or in your morning cereal. 2. Smoothie In any shake or smoothie add a scoop of Cocoa Nibs. The cocoa nibs will give it a crunchy structure and a hint of chocolate flavor, adding a special boost to the consumer experience. 3. Chocolate drink Now that winter is approaching, hot drinks are the order of the day and a very good option is a good hot chocolate or, better said, a good hot Cacao! Just powder the cocoa nibs, as if they were coffee beans and then, in a French Press, prepare your drink as if it were coffee. We recommend two teaspoons of ground cocoa nibs for a cup of hot water. 4. Snack This is the simplest form of consumption, but recommended only for those who like strong flavors. Just open the bag of your AQP Cocoa Nibs and eat it as a snack while working, watching a movie or whenever you have that chocolate craving, the only difference is that you won't have a guilty conscience! 5. Salad Salad and Cocoa? Yes! Believe it or not, cocoa nibs are a great addition to your salads, both nutritionally and in terms of consistency. Their antioxidants provide a nutritional boost and their crunchy consistency makes the salad eating experience more enjoyable. 6. Hot Cooking Do you cook with almonds, or any other nuts? Then you can replace them with your Cocoa Nibs! Cocoa nibs behave in the kitchen like these nuts which makes them very malleable when cooking. Try them making your next pesto sauce or an authentic Mexican mole sauce! 7. Infusions They can also be added to spicy infusions such as Chai Teas as it gives them a unique bitterness. Try a black tea with cocoa nibs, a touch of cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, cloves and orange blossom petals. It will surprise you! 8. Desserts Undoubtedly the widest field of possibilities for nibs. Here let your imagination guide you to make new recipes or just add nibs to the ones you already know. Imagine your banana cake with crunchy nibs, your homemade granola with the special touch of nibs or your favorite cookie. Why not try a truffle?
