Domesticated in the
South American region for about 5000 years, cacao trees can now be spotted in
equatorial regions. These trees bear the pod carrying beans like cocoa.
Chocolate is made
from cocoa beans - or rather seeds - from Theobroma cacao trees. The plant
produces large, seed-like fruits, each containing 20 to 60 pods surrounded by
sticky, and sweet-pungent white pulp.
Who doesn't like eating chocolate? Of course, majority of people do! But most chocolates are heavily processed and contain refined sweeteners, dairy & preservatives. That's why processed chocolates are not considered as really healthy....
