Nacional Cacao Husks
- Add delicate chocolate flavor to beverages and sauces or brew your own cacao husk tea using husks from Heirloom Designated Nacional cacao beans - among the rarest and most sought-after cocoa beans in the world.
- Cacao husks are the shells or skin surrounding the cacao bean, which are separated, or winnowed, from the cacao nibs during production. Until recently, cacao husks were largely regarded as a waste byproduct of cocoa production. But this is a rags-to-riches story. Today, cacao husks are increasingly prized for their “superfood” properties given the high antioxidant and fiber content in these delicate cocoa-flavored shells. Calorie-free and caffeine-free, cacao husks possess awesome potential as a substitute for traditional cocoa flavorings and are most popularly prepared in teas such as cacao husk teas and tisanes. And these aren’t your ordinary cacao shells, these are husks winnowed from prized Heirloom Designated Nacional cacao beans and carry the sought-after smooth yet complex dark chocolate notes of Nacional cacao.
