Cacao, commonly known as Cocoa or Koko (in Samoan) is consumed as a hot drink known as Koko Samoa (or hot chocolate). It is the most favourable and valuable drink of Samoa. When you visit a family in other countries, you are often treated with either a cup of tea, coffee or a glass of wine. When you visit a family in Samoa, you are treated with a cup of koko; and the more families you visit, the more cups of koko you will have to consume; so it is part of the Samoan tradition.
Cacao beans are seeds that are found in fruits of cacao trees which are in the form of cacao pods. These beans are slightly bitter in taste; naturally sugar free rich with nutrition and provide many health benefits.
Theobroma cacao is extremely high in antioxidants, it is remarkably high in magnesium (which helps balance brain chemistry, builds strong bones, and is related to happiness). It actually has the highest natural source of magnesium, chromium, iron, zinc, copper, and manganese. The levels are so high they are considered therapeutic levels. There are very few foods that are actually mineral supplements, and cacao is one of them. It is a good source of folic acid, vitamins A, E, and K.
