The main ingredient in most mass-consumption chocolate bars isn’t cocoa, but sugar, together with saturated vegetable fat and powdered mild. This has earned chocolate a reputation as fattening, tooth-decaying junk food.
However, true chocolate – made from natural ingredients – is far healthier. It contains higher percentages of cocoa and less sugar. Furthermore, dark chocolate contains antioxidants that benefit health. So, choose wisely and, in moderation, enjoy the flavor of quality chocolate!
