The ratio of sugar and milk to cocoa creates varying degrees of milk or dark chocolate. Most chocolate falls into one of three categories: milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate.
Milk chocolate, the most popular type, typically contains about 10 percent cocoa liquor compared with a minimum of 35 percent found in dark chocolate. Shoppers can tell how much cocoa liquor is in a dark chocolate bar by looking for the "percent cacao" figure on the label. Cacao is the raw form of chocolate, while cocoa is the heated version of cacao.
The number of cocoa solids in dark chocolate is important because it can be an indicator of the amount of dietary flavonoids, which are antioxidants found in fruits, vegetables and certain drinks. Research shows consuming more dietary flavonoids is linked to a lower risk of coronary heart disease for it may also help lower blood pressure and improve vascular function. In addition, some research has linked chocolate consumption to reduced risks of diabetes, stroke and heart attack. But more research is needed to confirm such results.
Moderation in all things is the key to good health. Enjoy your chocolate eat lots !!!
