Cacao Nibs are from Cacao Seeds, and are made by peeling and breaking the cacao seeds. In fact cacao nibs are the middle thing prior to chocolate. There are two types of cacao nibs. One is from roasted cacao beans, and the other is from raw cacao beans.  The roasted cacao nibs are made from the process whereby the cacao seeds are roasted in large, rotating ovens, at temperatures of about 210-290F. Roasting lasts from half an hour up to two hours. The heat brings out more flavour and aroma, and it dries and darkens the seeds. Then the seeds are cracked and winnowed, that is, their outer shells are cracked and blown away, leaving the crushed and broken pieces of cacao seeds – “cacao nibs”. At this point, we have something edible and really chocolatey.  Cacao nibs contains Magnesium, Sulphur, and Anti-oxidant, Monoamine Oxidase Enzyme Inhibitors,
