[Do you know Cacao?] You may have seen cacao nibs in the supermarket, but what is the difference among cacao nibs, cacao powder and chocolate in terms of use and nutrition?

Both cacao nibs and cacao powder come from the fermented and dried cacao bean. Cacao nibs are the crushed cacao bean while cacao powder is grounded from the cocoa solids after most of the cocoa butter is removed. Chocolate is processed by mixing the cocoa mass, cocoa butter, sugar and emulsifier.

Among them, cacao nibs and cacao powder retain more nutrients with fewer processing steps. Cacao powder contains potassium, iron and magnesium the most. They also contain lots of polyphenol antioxidants like epicatechins, catechins and proanthocyanidins which help prevent chronic diseases and cancer, and have anti-inflammatory effects.

With the reduced cacao proportion and added sugar, the nutrition value of chocolate is greatly reduced. 70-85% dark chocolate is recommended with lower sugar contents and more nutrients than milk or white chocolate.

You can add cacao nibs or cacao powder to yoghurt or oatmeal, grind them together with coffee beans for drinks, or replace chocolate chips for desserts to have a better control of sugar intake.
