Food that will pique your interest!

Who knew Chocolate was this precious?
The Aztecs are famous for their love of chocolate, they also used cocoa beans for money. Under the Aztec rule, tax payments could be made with cocoa!
Honey as old as a mummy in a coffin…
Honey's two main defenses against food spoilage are its extremely low moisture content and high acidity in its natural state. According to research, bacteria will most certainly perish in an environment with low moisture and high acidity, such as a tightly closed jar. This could explain why honey pots that date back thousands of years and still appear to be fresh, are now discovered by archaeologists.
Let’s go… BANANAS!!!
The common yellow fruits you find in the shopping centre, are all genetically mutated from the Cavendish variety, even though there are more than 1,000 different varieties of bananas in the world.
