Chocolate is made from the fruits of Theobroma cacao, which grows in tropical areas. It is very demanding on cultivation and conditions in which it grows. The cacao fruit grows directly on the trunk. They have the shape of a small rugby ball. They have cocoa beans on the inside. In raw form, they are covered with a white liquid. The fruits are harvested twice a year.
History of chocolate
Cocoa beans became a part of our history over three thousand years ago. The Maya, Olmec, and Aztecs later learned to make a drink from them that beat the other ways of consuming chocolate. The Aztecs believed that the cacao tree was a rare tree that was a symbol of life and fertility.
The main ingredient of chocolate is cocoa, which is obtained from the beans of the tropical tree of the cacao tree (in Greek, Theobroma Cacao – a divine dish). Large cocoa plantations are found around the equator in West Africa, but cocoa beans with the best quality grow on trees in Central and South America.
