I just bought raw cacao beans for the first time. Are the shells edible? What's the easiest way to remove the shell from raw beans?


Hi Karen,
I like your post on raw cacao. I once bought into the media hype of how dark chocolate has amazing health benefits and is looked as a possible super food. We tend to look at the possibilities of cocoa being healthy but forget how bad dark chocolate really is as being processed with unhealthy fats and sugars. Raw cacao powder and nibs enables people to create raw healthy deserts with healthy fats and natural sugars. Processed deserts have no nutritional value and lead to obesity and many other health diseases and issues.
