Storage Of Cocoa Nibs
 
Cocoa beans are normally stored in form of whole beans in jute bags for relatively short period. They can be stored for 5 to 6 months safely. During storage and transportation they are subjected to problems of insect infestation, mould contamination and moisture exchange between atmosphere and the beans, which are hygroscopic. Other problems encountered are beans size variation, high shell content, price fluctuation and adulteration. Both weight and quality differences will have a bearing on trading value. To overcome these problems and to prolong the shelf life of cocoa beans, a study was conducted to store cocoa nibs in plastic lined jute bags.

For mothers after delivery, this herb is always consumed to ensure they are healthy and energetic.
