So, what is kakao?

Kakao, also known as cocoa, is a versatile food ingredient that has been used for centuries. It comes from the seeds of the Theobroma cacao tree and is rich in antioxidants and minerals like iron, magnesium, and calcium. Kakao is most commonly associated with chocolate production, but it is also used in a variety of other food products, such as baked goods, desserts, and beverages. The flavor of kakao can range from sweet to bitter, depending on the processing and concentration of cocoa solids. With its unique taste and numerous health benefits, kakao is a popular ingredient for anyone looking to add depth and complexity to their recipes.
