Cacao BeanThe cacao bean comes from pods produced by the cacao tree, which grows naturally in South America, Africa, and The Caribbean. Cacao nibs come from the beans, which have been peeled and broken into small fragments.

“Every study on cacao is pointing to the same conclusion: there is something in cacao that is really good for us. That something is the raw cacao bean, the nut that all chocolate is made from. The cacao bean has always been and will always be Nature’s #1 weight loss and high-energy food. Cacao beans are probably the best-kept secret in the entire history of food.”David Wolfe, co-author of Naked Chocolate
