Sweet Greeting by Talking Sweets. Yes, Chocolates #1 !

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.

Te amo,

Not a Warm Greeting, yes?

The very first ever made post on this site, yes, here it is.

 

My good intentions come along with the settlement of this site. This site is actually dedicated to me myself as a food-science journalist soon to be. There, you can see the words ‘soon to be’ which refers to my (so far) first aspiration in life. I am a food science student who just started things couple months ago. It is a bit long story behind it. Just reasons and you probably not so sure want to hear or know it. But later on, you may meet me (or least, my name) on your foodie magazine. See you there!

Pardon my English, everyone. Due to the lack of its usage on my daily basis, I’ll be big enough for once again starting to use it more and more. This site will also witness my winning to take over it. So yes, pardon me for having times failing the grammar or diction. I beg for excuses in many ways cause I considered those who got the will to learn deserve chances. Or maybe we should be partners of improving our English skill, perhaps? You can find me through my social medias or mail me on afiwiyono@gmail.com, it’s a big appreciation I’ll have.

Te amo,
