So, what is cocoa?

Cocoa, also known as cacao, is a versatile and delicious food ingredient that comes from the seeds of the cocoa tree. It is commonly used in the production of chocolate and other confections, as well as in baking and cooking. Cocoa is rich in antioxidants, which are believed to have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation and improving heart health. It is also a good source of iron, magnesium, and fiber. Whether enjoyed in the form of a hot cocoa drink or as a key ingredient in a dessert recipe, cocoa is a beloved and indulgent treat that can be enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
