As far as I can tell, Crio Bru is just cacao nibs that have been roasted and coarsely ground.
I buy organic raw cacao beans, roast them, remove the skins and use the nibs in various ways - not to make chocolate candy, but to see how I can use them without it triggering an allergy that I have had for many years.
Dutch process cocoa does not trigger the allergy so I am able to cook with it, no problems.
My allergist can't explain why I do react the way I do but he has seen me during an episode, relieved with an injection of a rapid-acting steroid.
It sounds interesting, but a bit expensive at a dollar an ounce.
