Watch What You Know About Chocolate?? A Chocolaty History Of Chocolate
➤Chocolate is one of the most popular and beloved delights in the world. It is loved in all sorts of shapes and sizes - bars, sweets, chocolate spread, chocolate syrup ... whatever. Everything that is created from chocolate leaves most of us wanting more. But how was this incredible dessert becoming vital? Who was the genius who decided to create it? Chocolate has had an incredible journey throughout our history, ending in modern times where it is still favored among gentle lovers in search of assured satisfaction.
The seeds of cacao trees grow naturally in the trees, so it was not long before the ancient populations of Mesoamerica, where it all began, discovered the taste and properties of cocoa. The chocolate began to be consumed like liquid, a drink made of cocoa seeds where spices and even wine were added; giving it a more bitter and not sweet taste that we all know and love. It was believed that this beverage had aphrodisiac properties, a story that still persists today, but has yet to be proven. In the 16th century, primordial chocolate arrived in Europe, where sugar was added to the mixture. The upper classes were consumed at first, but quickly came to the common people, who also enjoyed it. The word chocolate comes from chocolatl, which is the classic Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs.
Between the 17th and 19th centuries, chocolate mania developed, Europeans, specifically French, English and Dutch, created colonies and began planting cacao to harvest essential grains. But, during the Industrial Revolution, the chocolate began to have the form and the flavor that we now know. In 1815, Coenraad van Houten, a Dutch chemist, decided to incorporate alkaline salts into the chocolate composition. This process actually diminished their initial bitterness. In 1828, the chemist created a special press that managed to remove about half the content of chocolate butter, which helped him achieve a more consistent quality.
From then on, it was just one more step for the creation of modern chocolate. In 1847, Joseph Fry took the Dutch cacao pressed, as it was called, and added the melted cocoa butter, creating a more malleable form of chocolate. And in 1879 Rodolphe Lindt, the creator of the chocolate of the same name, brought the finishing touch to modern chocolate with his shell machine, which improved the flavor and texture of the chocolate by mixing the chocolate evenly with the cocoa butter. Still, chocolate drinks were still popular, with milk added since the 17th century, to improve their flavor. But it was in 1875 when milk chocolate appeared, with Daniel Peter mixing chocolate liquor with milk powder, created by Henri Nestlé.
Thus, civilization has been fascinated by chocolate since the beginning of time, working hard and using innovation to enhance the properties of this magnificent dessert. Today there are so many assortments of chocolates available; We can enjoy everything we love!
