Cacao is one of nature’s most powerful superfoods. Unprocessed in its whole-food form, cacao delivers an abundance of antioxidants and nutrients that positively impact brain and cardiovascular health. What’s more, cacao also enhances the effectiveness of other minerals and nutrients in the body.
We all know chocolate has a positive impact on our soul—and for thousands of years, pure cacao has been used to nourish the body, thanks to a rich variety of critical antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Navitas Organics gives you four great ways to enjoy cacao: Cacao Powder, Cacao Butter, Cacao Nibs and Cacao Sweet Nibs. With no added sugar and a deep chocolate taste—with just a hint of bitterness that you expect from high-quality dark chocolate—you can easily swap our cacao products into your favorite recipes, snacks or smoothies. Can’t wait? We understand. Our Cacao Nibs and Cacao Sweet Nibs are perfect as a snack right out of the bag. No reason to hold back from such a healthy indulgence.
MAYA FOOD OF THE GODS
Navitas Organics Cacao comes from Peru, where tropical cacao trees have grown for thousands of years. In fact, cacao was touted as the Food of the Gods during the days of the Mayan Empire—and was even used as currency.
The majority of cacao globally comes from a handful of species. Ours is from the most rare of them all—a species that is more complex in flavor and nutrition, and also more difficult to harvest and handle. We carefully select our cacao beans from small-scale organic cacao farmers in the heart of Peru's forests—and then handle them with delicate care to preserve maximum nutritional value. We think the result is worth it.

Cacao Nibs & Cacao Sweet Nibs
Dubbed nature’s chocolate chips, our Cacao Nibs are made two ways: pure and unaltered, or with just a hint of sweetness added. Swap them out for processed chocolate chips in any recipe. Enjoy them straight out of the bag. Sprinkle them onto cereal, trail mix, yogurt or ice cream. Anyway you eat them, you can’t go wrong.
Cacao Powder is made from pressing the nibs into a paste. This removes the fat, further concentrating the minerals and antioxidants, and deepening both the taste and color. Navitas Organics Cacao Powder is easy to use—simply swap 1:1 in any recipe that calls for baking cocoa, including baked treats, homemade chocolates and hot cocoa.
