A tree of the family Sterculiaceae (or Byttneriaceae), usually Theobroma cacao, or its seeds, which after fermentation and roasting, yield cocoa and chocolate.
Sweet food products combining cane or beet sugars with other carbohydrates and chocolate, milk, eggs, and various flavorings. In the United States, candy refers to both sugar- and cocoa-based confections and is differentiated from sweetened baked goods; elsewhere the terms sugar confectionary, chocolate confectionary, and flour confectionary (meaning goods such as cakes and pastries) are used.
3,7-Dimethylxanthine. The principle alkaloid in Theobroma cacao (the cacao bean) and other plants. A xanthine alkaloid that is used as a bronchodilator and as a vasodilator. It has a weaker diuretic activity than THEOPHYLLINE and is also a less powerful stimulant of smooth muscle. It has practically no stimulant effect on the central nervous system. It was formerly used as a diuretic and in the treatment of angina pectoris and hypertension. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, pp1318-9)

An independent state in the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies, north of Venezuela, comprising the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Its capital is Port of Spain. Both islands were discovered by Columbus in 1498. The Spanish, English, Dutch, and French figure in their history over four centuries. Trinidad and Tobago united in 1898 and were made part of the British colony of Trinidad and Tobago in 1899. The colony became an independent state in 1962. Trinidad was so named by Columbus either because he arrived on Trinity Sunday or because three mountain peaks suggested the Holy Trinity. Tobago was given the name by Columbus from the Haitian tambaku, pipe, from the natives' habit of smoking tobacco leaves.

Use of Dorset egg medium for maintenance and transport of Neisseria meningitidis and Haemophilus influenzae type b. (1/333)

Studies of bacterial meningitis are hampered by the inability to maintain the viability of etiological agents during transport to reference laboratories. The long-term survival rate of 20 isolates of Neisseria meningitidis and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) on Dorset egg medium, supplemented Columbia agar base medium, chocolate agar, and Amies medium was compared with that on 70% GC agar (chocolate) transport medium. N. meningitidis isolates were also inoculated onto 5% horse blood agar, and Hib was inoculated onto Haemophilus test medium. All of the N. meningitidis isolates remained viable on Dorset egg medium for 21 days; viability on the other media was poor after only 7 days. Recovery rates of Hib isolates were similar on Dorset egg and Haemophilus test media (100% after 21 days) and significantly better than on the other media. Dorset egg medium is inexpensive and easy to make and may be invaluable for studies of bacterial meningitis in developing countries.  (+info)

Teas and other beverages suppress D-galactosamine-induced liver injury in rats. (2/333)

We compared the effects of various types of beverages (teas, coffee, and cocoa) on D-galactosamine-induced liver injury by measuring plasma alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) activities in 7-wk-old male Wistar rats. The effects of five fractions extracted with different organic solvents from green tea, different types of dietary fibers, and some short chain fatty acids were also investigated. All of the beverages tested significantly suppressed D-galactosamine-induced enhancement of plasma enzyme activities when powdered beverages were added to the diet (30 g/kg) and fed to rats for 2 wk. Plasma ALT activities were 1155 +/- 82 [micromol/(min.L), control], 289 +/- 61 (green tea), 626 +/- 60 (roasted green tea), 471 +/- 84 (puerh tea), 676 +/- 69 (oolon tea), 423 +/- 76 (black tea), 829 +/- 53 (coffee), and 885 +/- 89 (cocoa). The profile of AST activities was similar. The caffeine-containing fraction from green tea had no significant effect, whereas the other four fractions, including the soluble fiber fraction, significantly suppressed liver injury. In addition to tea fibers, many other types of dietary fiber (hemicellulose, chitin, chitosan, alginate, pectin, guar gum, glucomannan, and inulin, but not cellulose) had liver injury-preventive effects when added to the diet (30 g/kg), suggesting that liver injury-prevention may be one of the general effects of dietary fibers. Of three short-chain fatty acids tested (acetate, propionate, and butyrate), only acetate prevented liver injury when added to the diet (15 g/kg), supporting the possibility that the liver injury-preventive effect of dietary fibers may be mediated at least in part by certain organic acids. These results suggest that several beverages possess preventive effects on certain types of liver injury, such as that induced by D-galactosamine, and that different constituents of high and low molecular weights contribute to the liver injury-preventive effects of green tea.  (+info)

Protection against peroxynitrite by cocoa polyphenol oligomers. (3/333)

Flavonoids, natural plant constituents, protect against peroxynitrite and can thereby play a role in defense against this mediator of inflammation. Procyanidin oligomers of different size (monomer through nonamer), isolated from the seeds of Theobroma cacao, were examined for their ability to protect against peroxynitrite-dependent oxidation of dihydrorhodamine 123 and nitration of tyrosine. By molarity, oligomers were more effective than the monomeric epicatechin; the tetramer was particularly efficient at protecting against oxidation and nitration reactions. These results suggest that epicatechin oligomers found in cocoa powder and chocolate may be a potent dietary source for defense against peroxynitrite.  (+info)

A comparison of blood agar supplemented with NAD with plain blood agar and chocolated blood agar in the isolation of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae from sputum. Bacterial Methods Evaluation Group. (4/333)

Streptococcus pneumoniae grows well and generally exhibits typical morphology on Columbia blood agar, whereas Haemophilus influenzae requires a more complex medium to meet its growth requirements - usually chocolated blood agar - on which S. pneumoniae is less easily recognisable. Therefore, a single medium that produces typical morphology of S. pneumoniae and facilitates the growth of H. influenzae would have considerable potential advantages. It has been claimed that blood agar supplemented with nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is such a medium. However, despite its routine use in several large diagnostic laboratories its performance has never been properly evaluated. In the present study, 1724 sputum samples were examined in four laboratories. The isolation rates of H. influenzae and S. pneumoniae on NAD-supplemented blood agar (SBA) were compared with those on a two-plate combination of plain blood (BA) and chocolated blood agar (CBA). The two-plate combination performed significantly better for both organisms; isolation rates for H. influenzae were increased from 8.16% on SBA to 11.07% on BA plus CBA and for S. pneumoniae from 4.18% to 4.68%. Isolation rates were also compared after incubation for 24 and 48 h. With the two-plate combination, isolation rates for H. influenzae and S. pneumoniae were increased by 0.98% and 0.16%, respectively, and for SBA by 0.57% and 0.32% after 48 h. However, despite this increase, SBA still performed less well than the two-plate combination.  (+info)

An olfactory discrimination procedure for mice. (5/333)

This paper describes an olfactory discrimination procedure for mice that is inexpensively implemented and leads to rapid discrimination learning. Mice were first trained to dig in small containers of sand to retrieve bits of buried chocolate. For discrimination training, two containers were presented simultaneously for eight trials per session. One container held sand mixed with cinnamon, and the other held sand mixed with nutmeg. Both containers were baited with chocolate buried in the sand. One odor was designated S+, and mice were allowed to dig and retrieve the chocolate from this container. The other odor was S-, and both containers were removed immediately if subjects began to dig in an S- container. After meeting a two-session acquisition criterion, subjects were given a series of discrimination reversals. In Experiment 1, 12 Swiss-Webster mice (6 male and 6 female) acquired the olfactory discrimination in three to five sessions and completed 3 to 10 successive discrimination reversals within a 50-session testing limit. In Experiment 2, subjects were 14 Pah(enu2) mice, the mouse mutant for phenylketonuria; 7 were homozygotes in which the disorder was expressed (PKU), and 7 were heterozygotes with normal metabolism (non-PKU). Thirteen mice completed pretraining in four to seven sessions, acquisition required 3 to 12 sessions, and all mice completed at least three reversals. Learning rates were similar in PKU and non-PKU mice. We discuss issues related to implementation and several potentially useful procedural variations.  (+info)

Cocoa inhibits platelet activation and function. (6/333)

BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic studies have shown inverse associations between dietary polyphenols and mortality from coronary heart disease. However, the basis for this protective association is uncertain. Food polyphenols reportedly have antioxidant properties and decrease platelet function in vitro. OBJECTIVE: This study sought to evaluate whether consumption of a polyphenol-rich cocoa beverage modulates human platelet activation and primary hemostasis. DESIGN: Peripheral blood was obtained from 30 healthy subjects before and 2 and 6 h after ingestion of a cocoa beverage (n = 10), a caffeine-containing control beverage (n = 10), or water (n = 10). Platelet activation was measured in terms of expression of activation-dependent platelet antigens and platelet microparticle formation by using fluorescent-labeled monoclonal antibodies and flow cytometry. Primary platelet-related hemostasis was measured with a platelet function analyzer. RESULTS: Ex vivo epinephrine- or ADP-stimulated expression of the fibrinogen-binding conformation of glycoprotein IIb-IIIa was lower 2 and 6 h after consumption of cocoa than before consumption. Cocoa consumption also decreased ADP-stimulated P-selectin expression. In contrast, epinephrine-induced platelet glycoprotein IIb-IIIa expression increased after consumption of the caffeine-containing beverage but not after water consumption. Platelet microparticle formation decreased 2 and 6 h after cocoa consumption but increased after caffeine and water consumption. Primary hemostasis in response to epinephrine in vitro was inhibited 6 h after cocoa consumption. The caffeine-containing beverage inhibited ADP-induced primary hemostasis 2 and 6 h after consumption. CONCLUSIONS: Cocoa consumption suppressed ADP- or epinephrine-stimulated platelet activation and platelet microparticle formation. Cocoa consumption had an aspirin-like effect on primary hemostasis.  (+info)

Food of the gods: cure for humanity? A cultural history of the medicinal and ritual use of chocolate. (7/333)

The medicinal use of cacao, or chocolate, both as a primary remedy and as a vehicle to deliver other medicines, originated in the New World and diffused to Europe in the mid 1500s. These practices originated among the Olmec, Maya and Mexica (Aztec). The word cacao is derived from Olmec and the subsequent Mayan languages (kakaw); the chocolate-related term cacahuatl is Nahuatl (Aztec language), derived from Olmec/Mayan etymology. Early colonial era documents included instructions for the medicinal use of cacao. The Badianus Codex (1552) noted the use of cacao flowers to treat fatigue, whereas the Florentine Codex (1590) offered a prescription of cacao beans, maize and the herb tlacoxochitl (Calliandra anomala) to alleviate fever and panting of breath and to treat the faint of heart. Subsequent 16th to early 20th century manuscripts produced in Europe and New Spain revealed >100 medicinal uses for cacao/chocolate. Three consistent roles can be identified: 1) to treat emaciated patients to gain weight; 2) to stimulate nervous systems of apathetic, exhausted or feeble patients; and 3) to improve digestion and elimination where cacao/chocolate countered the effects of stagnant or weak stomachs, stimulated kidneys and improved bowel function. Additional medical complaints treated with chocolate/cacao have included anemia, poor appetite, mental fatigue, poor breast milk production, consumption/tuberculosis, fever, gout, kidney stones, reduced longevity and poor sexual appetite/low virility. Chocolate paste was a medium used to administer drugs and to counter the taste of bitter pharmacological additives. In addition to cacao beans, preparations of cacao bark, oil (cacao butter), leaves and flowers have been used to treat burns, bowel dysfunction, cuts and skin irritations.  (+info)

Procyanidin content and variation in some commonly consumed foods. (8/333)

Procyanidins are a subclass of flavonoids found in commonly consumed foods that have attracted increasing attention due to their potential health benefits. However, little is known regarding their dietary intake levels because detailed quantitative information on the procyanidin profiles present in many food products is lacking. Therefore, the procyanidin content of red wine, chocolate, cranberry juice and four varieties of apples has been determined. On average, chocolate and apples contained the largest procyanidin content per serving (164.7 and 147.1 mg, respectively) compared with red wine and cranberry juice (22.0 and 31.9 mg, respectively). However, the procyanidin content varied greatly between apple samples (12.3-252.4 mg/serving) with the highest amounts on average observed for the Red Delicious (207.7 mg/serving) and Granny Smith (183.3 mg/serving) varieties and the lowest amounts in the Golden Delicious (92.5 mg/serving) and McIntosh (105.0 mg/serving) varieties. The compositional data reported herein are important for the initial understanding of which foods contribute most to the dietary intake of procyanidins and may be used to compile a database necessary to infer epidemiological relationships to health and disease.  (+info)

The inability to conserve cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) germplasm via seed storage and the vulnerability of field collections make the establishment of cryopreserved genebanks for the crop a priority. An effective encapsulation-dehydration based cryopreservation system has been developed for cocoa but because the somatic embryos used for freezing arise after a protracted period of callus culture there is concern about maintenance of genetic fidelity during the process. Microsatellite markers for seven of the 10 cocoa linkage groups were used to screen a population of 189 primary somatic embryo-derived emblings and the 43 secondary somatic embryos they gave rise to. Of the primary somatic embryos, 38.1% exhibited polymorphic microsatellite profiles while for secondary somatic embryos the frequency was 23.3%. The same microsatellite markers used to screen another population of 44 secondary somatic embryos cryopreserved through encapsulation-dehydration revealed no polymorphisms. Scanning electron ...
Cryopreservation is a reliable means for the long-term conservation of plant genetic resources. It is of particular interest for cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) whose seeds are recalcitrant to conventional storage methods and field collections susceptible to disease infestations. However, the encapsulationdehydration procedure previously developed for cocoa somatic embryos has resulted in poor survival after retrieval from liquid nitrogen. To examine the causes of such failure, cocoa somatic embryos following each treatment step of the encapsulation-dehydration procedure were examined using a combination of confocal scanning laser microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Results showed that the parenchymas cells of the hypocotyl and radicle were the major sites of injury possibly due to their large size and non-cytoplasmic nature, whereas the shoot meristem and provascular strand were well preserved throughout the treatments. In general, cell deformation and/or disruption was observed following the

In Venezuela, Criollo cacao crops are distributed in different regions (eastern, central and western), and under different exploitation systems, and, in each of these regions, there is a uniqueness of materials with characteristics associated to an intrinsic, differential quality that could potentially affect chocolate quality. These regions have inherent climates that are significantly different; however, there is a lack of consistent technical information about the real effects of environmental factors on the organoleptic quality of cacao. Therefore, the present work aims to evaluate the content of important components of cacao, such as phenolic compounds, lignin, amino acids, and carbohydrate, in six Theobroma cacao L clones, cultivated in three different agro-climatic locations: humid, semi-humid and dry tropical forest. It was found that production of phenolic compounds and lignin vary in clones according to their location, with the highest values found in the humid forest and the lowest in ...

city withheld), AZ. The first distinction that needs to be made here is between cocoa powder and chocolate; too many people get them confused!. In order to make cocoa powder, cocoa beans are first fermented, roasted, and shelled.. Inside that shell are cacao nibs, which undergo a heated grinding process to be converted into a liquid known as chocolate liquor (a misnomer, since it contains no alcohol.). Chocolate liquor is then divided into cocoa butter and cocoa solids via compression.. The grinding of cocoa solids results in cocoa powder, which is naturally fat-free (as a result of being separated from cocoa butter) and sugar-free.. This is all very different from chocolate - which, at its most basic, is a combination of cocoa liquor, cocoa butter, milk, and sugar..

An increased need to understand the genetic relationships among cacao (Theobroma cacao) germplasm exists to identify cultivars that possess resistance to witches broom disease (caused by Crinipellis perniciosa). Loss of production due to witches broom disease in important cacao-growing areas, such as Bahia, Brazil, has generated a strong demand for disease-resistant varieties. Varieties based on single sources of resistance have been released; however, other genotypes are needed to enlarge the genetic diversity of cultivars in breeding programs. A core collection has been created to represent the range of genetic diversity available among the more than 600 cacao accessions at Centro de Pesquisa do Cacau (CEPEC). The cacao core facilitates access to the collection and is intended to enhance its use. This core collection was created from RAPD marker-based estimates of genetic distance among a subset of 270 accessions from the entire collection. The subset was sampled based on 1) witches broom ...
Cocoa is a rich source of dietary polyphenols. In vitro as well as cell culture data indicate that cocoa polyphenols may exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-atherogenic activity. Several molecular targets (e.g., nuclear factor kappa B, endothelial nitric oxide synthase, angiotensin converting enzyme) have been recently identified which may partly explain potential beneficial cardiovascular effects of cocoa polyphenols. However cocoa polyphenol concentrations, as used in many cell culture studies, are not physiologically achievable. Bioavailability studies indicate that plasma concentrations of cocoa polyphenols following dietary intake are low and in the nanomolar range. Human studies regarding the effect of cocoa polyphenols on vascular health are often underpowered and lack a rigorous study design. If dietary cocoa polyphenol intake is due to chocolate its high energy content needs to be taken into account. In order to determine potential health benefits of cocoa polyphenols

The endothelium is the inner lining of the arterial blood vessels. An artery with healthy endothelium is able to dilate, or widen, when increased blood flow is needed. This process is known as flow-mediated dilation or FMD. FMD is dependent on the ability of the endothelium to release nitric oxide (NO), a compound produced by the body that causes the endothelium and the blood vessels to relax and contract to facilitate the healthy flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the body as needed. Endothelial dysfunction is associated with high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases, and often increases with age.. Studies conducted by Mars and its collaborators show that dietary consumption of cocoa flavanols play a role in the bodys production of nitric oxide, which is important to the health of the cardiovascular and circulatory system. Recent research on cocoa flavanols has narrowed the focus to (-)-epicatechin and its related molecules.. ...

Cacao is the seed of a fruit of an Amazonian tree that was brought to Central America during or before the time of the Olmecs. Cacao beans were so revered by the Mayans and Aztecs that they used them as money.. In 1753 Carl von Linnaeus, the 18th-century Swedish scientist, thought that cacao was so important that he named the genus and species of this tree himself. He named this tree: Theobroma cacao, which literally means cacao, the food of the gods. As we approach 2012, and the patriarchal systems are crumbling, we decided to rename it Cacao, food of the goddess.. Cacao beans contain no sugar and between 12% and 50% fat depending on variety and growth conditions. There is no evidence to implicate cacao bean consumption with obesity.. Raw cacao is contains hundreds of chemicals, is high in magnesium, iron, chromium, tryptophan, and antioxidants. It also contains PEA and anandamide..

Chocolate is chocolate. If you let it stand on its own, it becomes an ingredient like cumin or butter. If you let go of what your preconception of chocolate is-which for 99.9 percent of the people is a candy bar-it becomes another culinary weapon in your larder.. Indeed, for most of its history, chocolate was exclusively used with savory/spicy ingredients. Cooking cocoa butter with meats or veggies may give them a heartier flavor, or you could try something more daring like salmon with white chocolate sauce. Snacks made with cocoa butter may be more ...

A study published on the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) found that high concentrations of cocoa flavanols decrease blood pressure, improve the health of blood vessels and increase the number of circulating blood-vessel-forming cells in patients with heart disease. The findings indicate that foods rich in flavanols - such as cocoa products, blueberry, and Ginkgo - have a cardio-protective benefit.. Flavanols are phytonutrient compounds that are found naturally in fruits such as apples, grapes, blueberries, tea, and cherries and herbs such as cocoa nuts and gingko. The study found a protective effect from a cocoa drink with 375 mg of flavanols, but according to researchers, a standard or recommended dosage has not yet been defined to achieve optimal health benefit.. The UCSF team has shown for the first time that one of the possible mechanisms of flavanols benefit is an increase in the circulation of so-called angiogenic cells in the blood. These cells, also known as early ...
This research describes the optimization of parameters (including pH, temperature, period of co-cultivation and age of callus) for Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated genetic transformation of Theobroma cacao L. using staminodes from cocoa buds as explants. The A. tumefaciens strain used was the super avirulent AGLl with the binary vector pGPTV-Kan/Gus. The strain confers aminoglycoside resistance to transformed cells through the neomycin phosphotransferase II (nptII) gene. Callus induction medium contained DKW minerals, glucose, vitamins, 2 mg/L 2,4D and 0.005 mg/L TDZ (0.5nM) pH 5.3. Co-cultivation medium was identical to callus induction medium but contained 0.02mg/L acetosyringone. Experiments were conducted using two clones of cocoa: KKM19 and P22. Staminodes were cultured on callus induction medium in the dark before the transformation process. After 14 days and 21 days on callus induction medium, callus-derived staminodes were co-cultivated with A. tumefaciens on semi-solid co-cultivation ...

Abstract. OBJECTIVE:. Impaired endothelial function in obesity may reduce blood flow to sites of metabolism, contributing to impaired fat oxidation and insulin resistance. This study investigated the effects of cocoa flavanols and regular exercise, interventions known to improve endothelial function, on cardiometabolic function and body composition in obese individuals.. DESIGN:. Overweight and obese adults were randomly assigned to high-flavanol cocoa (HF, 902 mg flavanols), HF and exercise, low-flavanol cocoa (LF, 36 mg flavanols), or LF and exercise for 12 weeks (exercise duration was 3 x 45 min per week at 75% of age-predicted maximum heart rate). Body composition was assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry at 0 and 12 weeks. Brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation (FMD), supine blood pressure (BP) and fasting plasma insulin, and glucose levels were assessed at 0, 6 and 12 weeks, respectively. Insulin sensitivity/resistance was determined using the modified homeostasis model assessment ...
USF cacao beans and nibs are indeed raw. The cacao paste is stone-ground and raw. USF cacao powder has 20-24% cacao fat content fulfilling the necessary specification to be a raw processed cacao powder; but, from South American cacao beans and not hybrid beans. The real question for me is, why eat a cacao seed in whatever form, anyway? Cacao is consumed by animals in the wild but they do not have the luxury of enjoying cacao in its most palate pleasing state. Cacao seeds have to be sun-dried and fermented to bestow its complex flavor profile and unique bitter, floral, citrus, and aromatic dimensions. Flavor is significant but the more important reason to eat cacao is for its mineral, nutritional, and chemical make up. Dietary minerals are found in all natural foods but are in the highest concentrations in foods from where soils are nurtured by organic, permaculture, biodynamic practices or having the grace of being developed naturally in the plants indigenous environment. Cacao originated in ...

Theobroma cacao L. cultivar Matina 1-6 belongs to the most cultivated cacao type. The availability of its genome sequence and methods for identifying genes responsible for important cacao traits will aid cacao researchers and breeders. We describe the sequencing and assembly of the genome of Theobroma cacao L. cultivar Matina 1-6. The genome of the Matina 1-6 cultivar is 445 Mbp, which is significantly larger than a sequenced Criollo cultivar, and more typical of other cultivars. The chromosome-scale assembly, version 1.1, contains 711 scaffolds covering 346.0 Mbp, with a contig N50 of 84.4 kbp, a scaffold N50 of 34.4 Mbp, and an evidence-based gene set of 29,408 loci. Version 1.1 has 10x the scaffold N50 and 4x the contig N50 as Criollo, and includes 111 Mb more anchored sequence. The version 1.1 assembly has 4.4% gap sequence, while Criollo has 10.9%. Through a combination of haplotype, association mapping and gene expression analyses, we leverage this robust reference genome to identify a promising
Spencer Hyman, a founder of Cocoa Runners, explains what he understands as the difference between cacao and cocoa. Generally the definition is… when it [the pod] is still on the tree its normally called cacao, and when it comes off the tree its only called cocoa. But he cautions that that is not an official definition.. Others extend that interpretation and use cacao for anything before processing and cocoa for the processed ingredients.. Megan Giller writes about fine chocolate at Chocolate Noise, and is the author of Bean-to-Bar Chocolate: Americas Craft Chocolate Revolution. She says, Something happened in translation at some point where we started using the word cocoa for after the product has been processed some amount. I define it as a cacao tree and a cacao plant and cacao beans before they are fermented and dried, and then it switches to cocoa.. Sharon has different take on the topic. I have yet to find a professional in the chocolate industry who makes any difference ...

The study recruited people with end-stage liver disease and it was presented at the International Liver Congress in Vienna in April 2010. Half of the patients were given a daily liquid meal containing dark chocolate and the other half were offered a liquid meal of white chocolate. The participants receiving dark chocolate had a lower increase in post-meal portal blood pressure than those receiving white chocolate.. The scientists believe the antioxidants present in dark chocolate help to minimise damage to the blood vessels of cirrhosis patients, and in that way help to reduce high blood pressure. White chocolate did not have any benefits because it doesnt contain antioxidants. The authors of the study concluded that there is a clear association between eating dark chocolate and portal hypertension.. Dark chocolate is high in cocoa solids and the higher the content of cocoa solids, the more antioxidants are present. Therefore chocolate comprising 70 percent cocoa and above is the healthiest ...
The conclusions, published in the journal Clinical Nutrition​, come on the back of a body of research pointing to the positive impact of flavonoids in chocolate. And the authors, including researchers based at the Harvard Medical School and the Boston University School of Medicine, argue that their findings are consistent with a recent study in the German Heart Journal​ which showed dark chocolate intake was associated with a 39 per cent lower risk of myocardial infarction and stroke combined. Dark chocolate belongs to the flavonoid-rich foods such as fruit and vegetables, tea, and red wine, with epidemiologic evidence indicates that beneficial effects of these on CHD are partly mediated through the effects of their polyphenolic compounds. The authors hold that while interventional studies have demonstrated beneficial effects of dark chocolate on blood pressure and endothelial function, there is, in fact, limited data available on the effects of total chocolate intake on CHD.. And they ...
A recent study by the International Headache Society raised interest in Theobroma Cacoa as an ingredient beneficial for preventing migraine headaches. As marketers use this research to promote dietary supplement products, information about the appropriate use of T. Cacoa is important to understand before beginning a supplement regimen. Theobroma Cacoa is the botanical name for the cocoa tree, which is used to produce chocolate. Cocoa as a supplement may also be referred to as cocoa oleum, cocoa seed, cocoa semen, cocoa testae, theobroma, theobroma sativum, or theobromine. The first question is regarding the most appropriate dosage for benefit. The study reported by the International Headache Society was actually perfored on laboratory rats, so information about the dosage used would likely not relate well to human usage. In other studies of Theobroma Cacoa, 150-250 milligrams was used in studies of platelet function, which may possibly correlate with the reduction of inflammatory response seen ...

Endothelial dysfunction is associated with a higher incidence of adverse cardiovascular events in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD patients also show impaired function and number of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs, adult stem cells) which circulate in adult blood and contribute to endothelial repair. Clinical studies suggest that endothelial function can be improved in CAD patients by consumption of flavanol-rich cocoa. Yet, the mechanism is not known. It is also not known whether flavanol-rich cocoa provides an additive, positive effect in patients who are already receiving the maximal recommended therapies for risk factor modification. Therefore, the researchers propose to perform an investigator-initiated, randomized controlled cross-over study administering flavanol-rich cocoa or a placebo for two months in CAD patients on optimal medical therapy. An improvement of endothelial function as measured by flow-mediated dilation (FMD) will be the primary endpoint of this study. ...

A recently published review of studies supports the use of chocolate milk as a recovery drink for athletes. Chocolate milk has been touted in research as a recovery drink for athletes, but many of the prior studies showing this have been small. However, a recent review published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that chocolate milk is indeed a good option.. According to an article from Reuters Health, the review looked at 12 studies that compared chocolate milk against a placebo and a sports drink. In the studies, athletes completed exercise tests that were mostly based on running or cycling. Their time to exhaustion, heart rate, creatine kinase, and lactic acid levels were assessed in most cases.. Compared against the placebo, the time to exhaustion was about one minute longer for chocolate milk drinkers. Compared with the sports drinks, the time to exhaustion for chocolate milk drinkers was about six minutes longer. In addition, the blood serum lactate was lower for the ...

Origins of Cacao. Cacao is known as the food of the gods that anyone who tried the delicious tastes of seeds is loss for words. There were other beliefs that Aztecs considered cacao as mans inheritance from the god of the air Quetzalcoatl. The history of cacao traced back on the fourth voyage of Christopher Columbus when he intercepted canoe with cacao. However, it was Cortez who use and carried back the cacao beans to Spain and use it for a drink exclusively made for wealthy people. They used to combine the cacao with maize, sugar, and vanilla. Later on, Cacao was cultivated in South America and western Africa and becomes the most common source of cocoa powder and chocolate.. Cacao trees grow in partial shade with an average temperature of 25.5 degrees Celsius. The fruit of cacao tree has yellowish red color with white pulp and fruits are harvested and broken to take the seeds. These seeds undergo fermentation for one week in sweat box until these become purple brown in color. The purposes ...
