PlanetBIO Sweet Cocoa & Yacon Nibs are a nutritious and delicious sweet snack from only 3 organic ingredients. We have covered organic cocoa nibs of criollo variety in a mixture of 100% cocoa paste and 100% yacon syrup that perfectly completes the slightly bitter chocolate taste of cocoa.

Criollo cocoa is the rarest and most expensive cocoa on the market, making up for only few percent of the world's cocoa crop. Its aroma is rich, complex and long-lasting. Criollos are particularly difficult to grow, as they are vulnerable to a variety of environmental factors and produce low yields of cocoa per tree. This is the reason why criollo cocoa is so highly valued and respected.  .

We at PlanetBIO always make sure that our products are not only 100 % organic, but also meet the highest standards of sustainable farming and fair-trade. We have visited the suppliers of PlanetBIO cocoa in Peru and made sure with our own eyes that our cocoa products are produced in an environment friendly way, with love for the planet and its inhabitants.

Why PlanetBIO cocoa?

Criollo. All PlanetBIO cocoa products come from the criollo type which is known as the best and most prized cocoa on the planet. It has an especially rich and complex aroma that is full of long-lasting flavors. Compared to other types of cocoa, criollo is difficult to cultivate and produces less cocoa, thus it represents onlz 5 % of total world cocoa production. Its cultivation requires more knowledge and care, making criollo products more expensive, but also more flavorful, nutritious and of higher quality.

Visited our suppliers in Peru. We visited Peru in 2012, meeting our cocoa suppliers. We were able to check the conditions in which it grows with their own eyes and were thrilled by the pristine Southamerican jungle where the cocoa tree originates.

Organic certificate & permaculture standards. All of PlanetBIO cocoa products have an organic certificate, confirmed by European union. Even more, they are grown according to permaculture standards. Our farmers follow permaculture because it is the most sustainable way to grow cocoa in long term. Cocoa trees are planted under the shade of bigger trees where they grow best and natural plant compost from banana leaves is used instead of artificial fertilizers. No insecticides or fungicides are used whatsoever.

Intact nutritional value. At PlanetBIO we always try that our products are minimally processed to preserve the most nutritional value. Our cocoa beans are nor roasted, containing the most minerals and nutrients in them. PlanetBIO cocoa nibs are raw, while cocoa powder and cocoa butter are first ground into a paste that reaches around 60°C, making them not raw technically. Anyway, they still contain more nutrients than conventional cocoa products, where cocoa beans have been roasted first.   

PlanetBIO cocoa nibs that are not roasted in the process, are coated with a mixture of cocoa paste and yacon syrup. 100 % cocoa paste is made with grounding organic criollo cocoa nibs into a thick paste, to which organic yacon syrup is added. Yacon syrup is known as one of the best natural sweeteners and is prized for its delicious caramel taste.
