Theobroma cacao, also called the cacao tree and the cocoa tree, is a small (4–8 m (13–26 ft) tall) evergreen tree in the family Malvaceae, native to the deep tropical regions of Mesoamerica. Its seeds, cocoa beans, are used to make chocolate liquor, cocoa solids, cocoa butter and chocolate.

The cocoa bean with its products (cocoa liquor, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate) is very rich in phenolic acids (10%–12%, dry weight). Being one of the richest sources of flavanols (around 60% of total phenolics in raw coca beans)—a subclass of flavonoids—cocoa is considered as one of the most significant contributors of total dietary flavonoid intake in the human diet. Cocoa flavonols are mostly flavanol monomers (epicatechin and catechin) and procyanidin oligomers (dimer to decamer), which have been reported as significant antioxidants. Catechins are flavan-3-ols and procyanidins are oligomeric flavonoids consisting of 2–10 covalently linked epicatechin and catechin moieties. More commonly, catechin and procyanidins groups in cocoa are together considered as total “cocoa flavonoids”. The flavonoid content per weight of cocoa has been reported as being higher than red wine, green tea, and black tea. Moreover, total amount of flavonoids in dark chocolate is higher than that of milk chocolate.
