Cocoa processing includes fermentation, drying, and aging of cocoa beans, after which cocoa powder, liquor, and butter are obtained. Cocoa is a good source of magnesium, due to which it helps in catalyzing protein synthesis and energy production. Apart from this, it is also rich in copper, which aids in improving glucose metabolism, brain development, and iron transportation. As a result, cocoa-based products are considered superfoods and help in boosting mental performance and uplifting mood.
