The history of cocoa beans dates back to the Mayans and Aztecs, who used them to enrich various dishes and delicacies. The hot drink ‚chocolat‘ was particularly popular and was prepared for festive occasions. The high content of phytochemicals and other substances beneficial to the body makes it clear why cocoa beans were considered the food of the gods. Cocoa beans themselves were so valuable that they were even used as currency.
Origin and cultivation
The country of origin is Peru, which, thanks to its location, provides the cacao tree with ideal conditions for proper growth. Since the cacao tree is a tropical plant, it thrives only in areas with high temperatures and also high humidity, which can reach up to 80%. This evergreen tree is very sensitive to sunlight and wind, so it is grown under the shade of banana trees, coconut palms and other tropical trees, which are therefore called cocoa mothers. The seeds known as cocoa beans are used to produce cocoa butter. The seeds are mainly used by the plant for reproduction. The dispersed seeds then grow into new plants, which is one reason why the seeds are so rich in nutrients.
The raw material for cocoa butter is cocoa beans. The cocoa beans are shelled and crushed to produce what is known as cocoa mass. Pressing the cocoa mass produces cocoa butter of a light yellow colour. After solidification, the cocoa butter is in the form of chopped pieces – see photo on the package label → sales package.
Composition and properties
Cocoa butter is a vegetable fat characterised by its delicious taste and aroma. It is a natural source of vitamins, minerals and other beneficial substances for the body. The representation of the individual fatty acids in cocoa butter differs from other vegetable oils. Depending on the ratio of saturated to unsaturated fatty acids, cocoa butter is solid at room temperature and melts at temperatures above 28°C. It melts slowly in the mouth, making it an ideal fat for the production of high-quality chocolates.
