Milk chocolate usually contains around 25% cocoa with the rest being sugar, milk solids and emulsifiers. In comparison, a good quality dark chocolate can be 85% or more cocoa with as little as 10 – 15% sugar and has no milk solids or emulsifiers.
Dark chocolate is rich in minerals, such as iron, magnesium, and zinc. The cocoa in dark chocolate also contains antioxidants called flavonoids, which may provide several health benefits such as:
- May lower blood pressure
- Raise HDL (good cholesterol)
- Prevent cognitive decline
Did you know? Studies have found that by adding dairy to cacao actually blocks the absorption of antioxidants in chocolate. While processed chocolate may taste delicious, the benefits of cacao are only found in the raw form.
