Let’s start this blog with the content of chocolate! The main ingrediënt in chocolate is Cacao. Cacao is very healthy but tastes bitter. People don’t like that taste, so companies add a lot of unhealthy ingredients such as sugars and fat to have a sweet and good taste in the product. Recently, scientists have invented some new chocolate, which contains less of these ‘bad’ ingredients.
Cacao contains a lot of minerals, and a variety of antioxidants. Antioxidants are used in dietary supplements and have been investigated for the prevention of diseases such as cancer and heart diseases. A lack of antioxidants can cause oxidative damage, so it is important to have enough antioxidants in our body.
ANOTHER BENEFIT: The “medicinal” chocolate contains only 35 per cent fat!!!
What did they discovered?
Scientist discovered that a new de-bittering agent in the form of a little-used herb from the Andean region of Bolivia and Peru can be used to make chocolate and replace the fat and sugars in the chocolate, while also reaching the same sweet taste of sugar and above that, the medical benefits stay.
