Hello! It is never too late to write stuff. So, here it is….a post (finally).
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Well, you are out of league, dude. No, I was not trying to be offensive even a little. The expression was closely telling that it seems impossible (or hard, you could tell) to find ones who would cross their hands right rejecting its sweetness. Or who doesn’t know what chocolate is? Right, Imma telling you.
Chocolate is a solid mixture. In its basic form it is composed of cacao powder, cocoa butter, and some type of sweetener such as sugar; however, modern chocolate includes milk solids, any added flavors, modifiers, and preservatives. — this is cited from a trusted source. Even when I am not telling you, you know that I am telling the truth. Right.
No, this post wil not end by its definition. Let us get further.
Somehow I was confused by the terms: cacao and cocoa. Why do they sound alike? What are they? The cacao refers to both the plant and powder from the tree, Theobroma Cacao. Meanwhile, cocoa refers to the processed, the roasted form. In brief, that is all.
Case closed. Lol.
Okay next, will you be interested by how the cocoa processed for next be edible to you? Yaz, I am being rhetorical cause I keep on telling you whatever your answer is! After spending some times on knowledge center of IFT: cocoa seeds are removed from the pod, dried and roasted, giving them a distinct dark color and unique flavor. After roasting, cocoa seeds are ground into a paste called chocolate liquor. The liquor separates into dry cocoa and cocoa butter, or fat. Cocoa is heated and combined with other ingredients, such as sugar and milk, to create chocolate bars and candy.
Sorry not sorry for using copy-paste mode.
Well, by this, I end this part. We will be having the next part on…….just wait for it. HAHAHA. And by this too, I congratulate myself for finally publishing a post after a very long unproductive year. This is my sweet greeting.
