The Science of Chocolate

Join Natural Resources Committe Member Abbie Schrontenboer as she talks about chocolate. It's called the "food of the gods," but what is so special about chocolate? Not only is it delicious, but chocolate finds its beginnings in complex tropical ecosystems. In this program, find out the complexities of chocolate, from growing the chocolate tree to harvesting and fermenting the cacao bean to the processing and mixing of ingredients. Together we will taste different chocolates and consider ecological implications of our chocolate consumption.
