I would like to add that it’s best to consume minimally processed chocolate in pure, dark form without additives (like corn syrup, hydrogenated oil and artificial colors or flavors). Also, processing cacao into chocolate diminishes its flavonoid content, and milk appears to inhibit its antioxidant effects. You should look for a cacao content of 70% when eating it for healthy benefits.
