Why Dark Chocolate?
Almost everyone loves chocolate, so it makes sense that the research community is studying its effect on our health. And when it comes to the dark stuff, the news is good!
Unlike milk chocolate, dark chocolate contains a high percentage of cocoa solids.
Milk chocolate has more added sugar, milk solids, and cream. The antioxidants found in that cocoa bring a myriad of nutritional perks, too. I'm talking stress reduction, improving blood pressure, supporting heart health... It could even aid in weight loss! Sounds to me like it’s time to get in the kitchen and whip up some easy dark-chocolate recipes.
HG FYI: Dark chocolate is also commonly referred to as semi-sweet or bittersweet. The higher the percentage of cacao, the better the chocolate is for your health!
