Before we venture into what makes chocolate healthy, it might be helpful to look at what chocolate actually is.
Chocolate comes from the seeds of the cacao tree. Straight from the tree they are very bitter and need to go through a few processes, including fermentation and roasting. Only then becoming a product ready to eat.
The chocolate you buy commercially usually has a lot more than just that roasted cacao in it. There can be various additives, including refined sugar which can make chocolate an unhealthy option. In fact, some well-known chocolate brands have products that contain around 54 grams of sugar per 100 grams.
So to go back to our original question, chocolate without these nasty additives and lots of sugar is healthy chocolate. This is because chocolate itself contains powerful antioxidants and compounds known as flavanols. Some of the antioxidants found in some healthy chocolate are linked to the following health benefits* :
There is also some evidence that consuming chocolate can be a mood booster due to a chemical known as phenylethylamine which stimulates those happiness centres in your brain, similar to falling in love! No wonder so many of us claim to love chocolate.
It certainly can be! Vegan chocolate tends to contain healthy and natural ingredients, with little or no refined sugar.
Those of you who wish to ensure they satisfy their sweet tooth while also ensuring they only consume vegan products will find some healthy and tasty options at GoodnessMe.
