Cacao Nibs, Roasted, Organic, 1oz. bag
In Mesoamerican cultures, particularly the Aztecs and Maya, Cacao (or cocoa) was highly valued and considered to be “the food of the gods”. It was believed that the gods had created cacao and given it to the people as a gift. The word “cacao” derives from “kakawa” which means “food of the gods.” Cacao was used in a variety of ways, including being consumed as a bitter beverage, used as a form of currency, and even used in religious ceremonies. The Aztecs believed that consuming cacao would bring one closer to the gods, and it was often used in religious rituals and offerings to the gods.
Cacao was also believed to have medicinal properties and was used to treat a variety of ailments, including fatigue and fever. It was also believed to have aphrodisiac qualities and was used to improve overall vitality. The ancient Mesoamericans consumed Cacao as a bitter beverage, made from ground cocoa beans, mixed with water and spices, such as chili pepper, vanilla, and honey.
As a medicinal herb, Cacao is a source of stimulating alkaloids such as theobromine and theophylline. This makes Cacao stimulating in a way similar to caffeinated plants. It increases energy and reduces fatigue, while supporting cognitive function.
