Chee Yee's curator insight, February 28, 11:06 PM

i didn't know what was cacao at first and i didn't know that there are chocolates that are not real! So, cocoa processed cacao that has been roasted at high temperatures while cacao is made by cold-pressing un-roasted cacao beans. I think i have been eating chocolates that are not real chocolates...And cacao is much more beneficial to our body compared to cocoa. It can help to prevent cancer, improve vision, improve memory loss. Also, we should eat more dark chocolates instead of milk or white chocolates! Its healthier though it taste bitter.
