Chocolate candy: benefits and harm – For Health

Chocolate was invented even before Columbus discovered America. It was made from cocoa beans. The Aztec and Maya tribes used chocolate as a base for drinks and sauces. Cocoa beans were ground and mixed with water to produce sweet and bitter drinks intended exclusively for the elite and priests. The chocolate itself was made from toasted and ground, fermented Theobroma cacao beans. It grew in the lowlands of the tropics of Central and South America, in Mexico. Currently, this tree is cultivated in all tropical countries. Source: Chocolate candy: benefits and harm – For Health
