New Book Reveals Little-Known Facts About Oompa-Loompas' Favorite Food -- the Cacao (Cocoa) Bean
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 5, 2005--Fans of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" are already familiar with the Oompa-Loompas' cravings for cacao (cocoa) beans. In his new book, "Naked Chocolate," David Wolfe (and Shazzie) thoroughly investigates the secrets surrounding these nutritionally packed beans -- the key ingredient that all chocolate is made from!
In a fun, informative Technicolor presentation, Wolfe breaks down the origins of chocolate, its unique history among various cultures -- including its employment as both currency and medicine -- and its specific scientific and alchemic properties. Readers will learn how this 'food of the gods' is the richest source of magnesium of any food, has ten times more antioxidants than blueberries (and twenty times more than red wine), and is nature's number one appetite suppressant. When chocolate is consumed in its natural, unprocessed state, the health benefits are superior to those of dark chocolate.
Complementary culinary companions to chocolate are discussed including carob, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, coconut, goji berries, honey, bee pollen, maca, spirulina as well as many common favorites including almonds, cashews, mint, vanilla and others. Wolfe details the specific alchemic properties each of these foods adds when paired with chocolate.
The book includes more than 60 healthy, original, 100 percent organic and dairy-free chocolate recipes including cakes, desserts, puddings, pies, ice cream and a variety of hot and cold beverages.
"Naked Chocolate" is sure to satisfy the chocoholic in all of us.
