So, what is cacau?

Cacau, also known as cacao, is a tropical plant whose beans are used to produce chocolate. The cacao bean is packed with nutrients like iron, magnesium, and antioxidants, making it a popular superfood. It has a bitter taste and a strong aroma, which can vary depending on the variety of cacao plant and the region where it is grown. The beans are typically roasted and processed to extract cocoa butter and cocoa powder, which are used in a wide range of chocolate products. Cacau is a versatile ingredient that can be used in both sweet and savory dishes, from hot chocolate to mole sauce.
