Did you know cocoa contain caffeine

By  | 

Cocoa contain a small amount of caffeine which may make certain people, especially children excitable. For 28 grams of milk chocolate, there is 7 milligrams of caffeine. For 28 grams of dark chocolate there is 19 milligrams of caffeine. It is interesting to note that a cup of coffee contains 179 milligrams of caffeine. However, these figures vary depending on the fermentation of the cocoa beans and the origin: for instance, cocoa beans from Africa contain less caffeine.
