cacao powder vs. nibs

suzyqsuzyq Raw Newbie

So what’s the difference between cacao powder and cacao nibs? Obviously cacao powder is, well, a powder… but is it just ground up nibs/beans, or is it pressed to remove the oil? I know that baking cocoa is pressed to remove the oil, and I know that some raw cacao powders claim they have also been (cold) pressed. But is ALL cacao powder pressed, or is some just ground? And does anyone know which brands are which??
