Easter Chocolate

Making Healthy Choices Chocolate Guide

  • Choose good quality. Cocoa solids or cocoa mass and cocoa butter should be among the first ingredients.  
  • Choose pure chocolate or with added nuts and dried fruit.  Filled chocolate has added fat and sugar.
  • If you are choosing chocolate for potential health benefits, choose dark chocolate.  Flavonoids, phytonutrients in dark chocolate, have anti-inflammatory, anti-clotting, and antioxidant properties.  Dark chocolate varies in cocoa content and generally the higher the better, so aim for 70% or more.  
  • Buy a small amount and enjoy in moderation.
