dark chocolate

make your chocolate dark

Did you know dark chocolate can actually be healthy?

Here are some of the benefits: - keeps your heart healthy - improves cognitive function (brain health) - helps control insulin levels due to low glycemic index of dark chocolate - full of antioxidants to fight free radicals in the body - high in the minerals pottasium; copper; magnesium; iron

It is recommended to have 20g per day (roughly 2 blocks) for health benefits.

Make sure your dark chocolate is a minimum of 70% cocao solids (this ensures lower sugar content) & preferably organic. Pictured is one of my favourite brands, Vivani, another one is Green & Blacks. Both are organic and have ethical sourcing standards.

Why Vivani?

  • all ingredients are organically grown and certified.
  • cocoa varieties and other ingredients are of top quality and are used in an optimum ratio of mixture.
  • they deliberately exclude lecithin.
  • they do not use genetically engineered ingredients.
  • they have an amazing dark chocolate range such as dark chocolate 71%, 75%, 85%, 92%; dark chocolate chilli; fine dark orange amongst others!

Next time you reach for the milk chocolate, why not try dark ;-)
