An overview of Louisiana
Louisiana is without a doubt a state that harvests the most French culture - all thanks to, or notably because of its European colonisation. Its name is a tribute to King Louis the XIV and Louisiana has numerous towns that are French - like Napoleonville or Saint Louis. Bordered by Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana has flat lands and is covered with bayous, streams that are nor natural nor artificial, but rather swampy. It is still however, possible to explore them but you might run into some alligators! This state possesses the biggest biodiversity in the U.S.
Plantations are big areas of land that belonged to the rich Creole farmers that produced cane sugar and cotton in the 1950s.
With its hundred-year-old oak trees, its rocking chairs, its farmers’ houses and its voodoo believers, Louisiana is a state that you will be dreaming about long after your visit!
New Orleans, Louisiana’s symbol
New Orleans is an incredible festival city that showcases brass band concerts on Mardi Gras, where you are sure to try some sugar coated doughnuts, Banana Fosters and of course...chocolate! Furthermore, the numerous festivals in Louisiana give you plenty of opportunity to give your neighbours and close ones a taste of the best artisan-created Belgian chocolate. This is in fact, what encouraged researchers at the University of Louisiana (Virginia Tech) to dig a little deeper. In 2014, a research team led by Andrew Neilson demonstrated some properties of chocolate. Like the fact that it is indigestible! The studies were designed to simulate the digestive system (the stomach and the small intestine) in water vessels with cocoa powder. As a result, the chocolate flavonoids were successfully digested but the other cocoa matter (essentially the fibers) were not. The remaining matter started to ferment - this process produced favourable substances to help lower cholesterol levels. Hence the interest of favouring quality chocolate because it contains a high number of flavonoids, rather than choosing classic chocolate bars that are mass produced.
