Cocoa contains particularly high levels of tryptophan, an amino acid that helps the body to produce the happiness hormone serotonin. That is why chocolate is said to make you happy. Theobromine, theophylline, and caffeine, which are also contained in cocoa, give you energy, and antioxidants ensure that your skin looks young.
When it comes to raw cocoa, the question also arises again and again: which is better? Strongly deoiled or weakly deoiled? But what does that mean anyway?
Strongly / weakly deoiled reflects the fat content. Strongly deoiled cocoa has approx. 12 % fat and weakly deoiled cocoa approx. 21 % fat.
Less fat or heavily deoiled means that other ingredients such as calcium, iron, etc. are more concentrated per 100g than with weakly or not at all deoiled cocoa.
