What is cocoa processing?

Cocoa bean is a seed of the cocoa tree used to produce cocoa-based products through various methods, such as farming and pod storage. It can be dried using different drying methods to prevent deterioration from bacteria. It is crushed or chopped into pieces to prepare salad dressings and ice cream toppings. It reduces bitterness, helps produce chocolate flavor, and removes the mucilaginous coating to allow the cotyledons to expand. It is a rich source of magnesium, which assists in catalyzing protein synthesis and energy production. Cocoa bean also improves cognitive health, strengthens the immune system, reduces the side effects of radiation therapy, and lowers the risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. It is converted into various forms, such as cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and cocoa liquor, via cocoa processing. Cocoa processing comprises cleaning, fermenting, drying, roasting, winnowing, nib grinding, alkalization, and liquor pressing of cacao beans. At present, it is widely utilized in the food and beverage (F&B), pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries across Nigeria.
