History of National Bittersweet Chocolate Day
The history, origin, founder, and year since National Bittersweet Chocolate Day are unknown. But the history of bittersweet chocolate has a long tradition. Bittersweet chocolate is a bar of unsweetened chocolate or chocolate liquor. It has little sugar, more cocoa butter, vanilla flavoring, and sometimes lecithin will be added. It does not include any milk solids, and it must contain at least thirty-five percent of chocolate liquor. The taste of the bittersweet chocolate will be exactly the same as its name implies. Chocolate comes from the seed of the cacao tree, and Aztecs discovered it.
The earliest known documented use of cacao seeds dates back to 1100 BC. The cacao tree seed will have an intensely bitter taste. It must be fermented to develop the flavor. Eating bittersweet chocolate regularly is good for your health. The antioxidants present in the bittersweet chocolate will lower blood pressure and protect your heart.
