What should you know about the cocoa bean?
Did you know ? Another name for the cocoa bean is the seeds of the pod, the fruit of the cocoa tree. Indeed, the pod contains about forty cocoa beans.
The cocoa bean has a special taste and is bitter. In order to develop flavors and reduce acidity, once extracted, they are fermented and then dried. You can use it as a spice when preparing your sweet and savory dishes.
However, if you want to get the maximum benefit from the cocoa bean, it is best to eat it raw, as it retains all the nutrients and antioxidants.
