The name “cacao” comes from Theobroma cacao (its scientific name), which means “food of the gods”. However, he is not considered sacred only by the symbolism of the term that names him. The Aztec, Inca and Mayan civilizations believed that this plant was medicinal, as it provided energy and well-being when ingested.
