What is healthy dark chocolate?
Cacao is a superfood loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that have many health benefits. Dark chocolate, by definition, contains no milk product and is as rich as its cacao content. Indeed, all the healthful goodness in any chocolate product is concentrated in the cacao.
We use single origin 95% cacao and are careful to use only small amounts of pure organic cacao butter (not any other type of vegetable oil) in order to increase the solid cacao content. Dark chocolate contains many beneficial compound and antioxidants such as, polyphenols, especially flavanols and flavonoids.
