Ceres Cacao Nibs, RAW (organic) - 250g
Ceres Organics Raw Cacao Nibs are certified organic cacao beans that have been fermented, sundried and roasted at low temperatures (below 47°C), then crushed into small bits. In their purest, most natural form, raw cacao nibs are without sugar and other additives.
Rich in antioxidants and fibre, they make a great substitute for roasted nuts or chocolate chips, without the added sweetness. Nibs add crunchiness and a subtle chocolate flavour with a touch of bitterness to baked goods and savoury dishes.
