 Cocoa Powder - joyofbaking.com
Cocoa powder is made when chocolate liquor is pressed to remove three quarters of its cocoa butter.
Cocoa powder can also be used in recipes with other chocolates (unsweetened or dark) and this combination produces a cake with a more intense chocolate flavor than if the cocoa wasn't present.
There are two types of unsweetened cocoa powder: natural and Dutch-processed and it is best to use the type specified in the recipe as the leavening agent used is dependent on the type of cocoa powder.

 Cocoa bean : by Ray Sahelian, M.D.
The alkaloids theobromine and caffeine are responsible for the stimulant effect of cocoa and chocolate and contribute to the bitter cocoa flavor.
Cocoa is known to lower blood pressure, though previous studies have disagreed about whether it staves off heart disease over the long-term particularly since it is contained in foods high in fat, sugar and calories.
The researchers demonstrated that the relaxation response mediated by cocoa flavanols is dependent on nitric oxide, a key signal released by the inner lining of blood vessels (the endothelium) essential for normal blood vessel function and healthy blood flow.

Learning Cocoa is not just a source of raw source code; rather, its salient feature is a series of step-by-step guides to working with Mac OS X tools like the Interface Builder and the built-in Apple IDE.
The first few chapters are useful for learning the basics of Cocoa, but the last half of the book was written with the mistaken philosophy that people learn to code best by typing in lots of huge examples with almost no explanation.
It is not a beginners programing guide in that you need to have command of C programing, an understanding of object oriented programing and frameworks, and to a lesser extent some knowledge of the Unix tool concepts (although you can get by with out this for a while).
