Cocoa

Historical note Cocoa originates from Mexico where the Mayas, Incas, and Aztecs considered it the food of the gods. Chocolate, mixed with vanilla and sugar, was first introduced as a beverageto Europe by Colombus and was considered an aphrodisiac and a symbol of wealth and power. The phenolics in chocolate prevent the fat becoming rancid, decreasing the need for added preservatives. This quality was exploited during World War II when at times US troops were rationed three chocolate bars per day during heavy combat as their sole source of nourishment (Waterhouse et al 1 996).
