Firstly, cocoa is not the same as cacao, cacao is the bean which comes from the Theobrona tree.
When we think of chocolate we think of cocoa which comes from cacao beans after they’ve been processed or roasted changing the quality and more importantly nutrient content, diminishing some health benefits.
Flavanols (contain health benefits) are found in chocolate and usually removed by manufactures because of the strong bitter taste, therefore processed sugars and fillers are added to ‘improve’ the taste.
Cacao is grown in many warmer climate countries around the world including Africa, when choosing your chocolate once in a while opt for fair-trade or organic bars and support the farmers.
