Adding healthy sweetness to your chocolate avocado pudding
Cocoa or cacao? No, this is no spelling error. Cocoa and cacao are two different ingredients. Let us the see the difference between the two. We shall include the carob too for good measure.
Difference between Cocoa vs Cacao vs Carob
Though having the same origins, cacao and cocoa are different. Cacao is the raw powder extracted from the pods of the theobroma cacao plant. Cacao has high antioxidant content. Cocoa is its more processed form, with a rich and sweet flavor.
Carob comes from a different plant altogether. It is a sweet edible pulp. Carob tastes naturally sweeter than cocoa, and in contrast to cacao, it does not contain caffeine, have the bitter undertone, or cause headaches, while, just like cacao, it contains Magnesium. Using carob entails the lesser use of sugar. Carob is alkaline.
