Native to tropical regions in Central and South America, Theobroma cacao was traditionally used for its healthful properties and as a ceremonial beverage by ancient Mesoamerican cultures. These cacao nibs are lightly roasted to bring out deep, earthy flavors and a slight bitterness.

Cacao beans and nibs have a long and colorful history, beginning in Central and South America before 1500 BC. The entire cacao fruit was used medicinally by the Mayan, Olmec and Aztec civilizations. These early American peoples also enjoyed consuming chocolate as a beverage; each culture adding its own mix of spices and flavorings to the drink. After the Spanish conquest in the 1500's, cacao made its way to Europe and began to spread worldwide.

Cacao tea is full of antioxidants and can be beneficial for your heart. It is also a strong source of magnesium, another nutrient for good heart health, along with muscle and nerve function. Roasted cacao nibs contain healthy fats, iron and zinc, and can help with mood as it can increase the levels of serotonin and dopamine in your brain. 

Cacao nibs are a natural stimulant, and they do contain caffeine. One teaspoon of cacao nibs contains about 4.6 milligrams of caffeine.
