One of the greatest contributions of the American continent to the world food supply is without a doubt cocoa. Cocoa is a foodstuff with a high nutritional value that also provides flavor to our diet.
Cocoa supplies us half the calories of chocolate with a lower quantity of fat at around 11-12% for 10 grams. This makes it a food source to include in nearly any diet, especially if we are going to expend energy whether it be physical or intellectual.
Cocoa offers us B group vitamins, in addition to minerals like calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, copper and potassium. It also contains theobromine which is a tonic that stimulates our body, ideal for breakfast and before working out.
Cocoa is a fuel source rich in antioxidants like polyphenols. Antioxidants are important for the body to function normally, especially the cardiovascular system.
