So, what is cacao.?

Cacao is a tropical tree that produces cocoa beans, the source of chocolate. The beans are harvested and fermented before being roasted and processed into cocoa powder, cocoa butter, or chocolate. Cacao is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and other beneficial compounds that may improve heart health, reduce inflammation, and boost brain function. It has a complex, bittersweet flavor profile that ranges from fruity and floral to nutty and earthy, depending on the variety and processing method. Cacao is a versatile ingredient that can be used in desserts, beverages, and savory dishes.
