What is a cocoa bean and where do cocoa beans grow?
Of course, chocolate doesn’t grow on trees, but cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate, does. Our noble cocoa bean is the seed of the cocoa fruit of the cacao tree and of course does not grow here, but in the tropical rainforest of Madagascar. Cocoa trees can be found not only in Africa, but also in South America, Central America, the Caribbean and South-East Asia. The cacao tree feels most comfortable in the shade of large trees and needs a lot of water and fertiliser to survive. The cacao tree bears fruit all year round, but what makes it special is that it bears cacao fruit in different states of ripeness at any time of the year. This can be recognised by the different colours of the cacao tree, which are either yellow, orange or red. The cacao fruit strongly resembles an elongated honeydew melon in appearance and usually contains up to 50 cacao beans.
Are cocoa beans healthy?
“The food of the gods”. That’s what the Aztecs in Mexico already called cocoa back then. And not only because of the heavenly taste, but also because of the health effects of the precious cocoa beans on the body.
Cocoa contains many minerals, especially magnesium, calcium and iron. We need the first two minerals to build healthy and stable bones and teeth. Iron, on the other hand, stimulates the formation of red blood cells and thus ensures that the body is supplied with enough oxygen. Those who eat cocoa beans also consume the antioxidants that protect our body from free radicals. The nutritional values of our fine cocoa beans are also impressive. In addition to the high fibre content, raw cacao beans also contain numerous unsaturated fatty acids, which ensure a balanced cholesterol level. Theobromine, which is found in the cacao bean, is the so-called caffeine of cacao. It stimulates the cardiovascular system and reduces fatigue. And you’ve probably heard that chocolate makes you happy, right? And there is indeed some truth in this. Especially because cocoa increases the serotonin level in the brain and promotes the release of endorphins – happiness hormones. Therefore, cocoa beans act like an antidepressant and promote your general well-being!
