3 Reasons Why Switching To The Good Chocolate Company Will Help Your Health
Indulgent, melting chocolate... Is there anything better?! We really are a nation of chocolate lovers but are we missing a health trick with our usual consumption? Here are 3 reasons why The Good Chocolate Company's chocolate wipes the floor with standard choc and is actually healthy for you!
1. It's not loaded with sugar (oh and it's better for the environment!)
Cocoa and chocolate are produced from the cacao bean, which is a fruit grown on the cacao tree. The beans are then picked, dried and fermented, roasted and ground. This then makes cocoa mass.
To make standard chocolate, large amounts of sugar, palm oil and other products are then added to this cocoa mass. This high sugar content is largely why most chocolate is considered an unhealthy product.
Additionally, the use of palm oil in most chocolate products is a contentious decision, due to the unethical nature of this product. The production of palm oil frequently involves deforestation, habitat destruction and threatens indigenous communities of many areas; therefore many mindful consumers are now looking for products without palm oil added. All The Good Chocolate Company's products contain zero palm oil.
2. It preserves 50% more anti-inflammatory antioxidants from the Cacao bean
The raw cacao bean contains flavanoids; a group of plant metabolites which contain high levels of antioxidants. More and more research is emerging demonstrating the antioxidant benefits of flavanoids. These powerful antioxidants have anti inflammatory actions and have been shown to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The normal processing methods for most chocolate (chemical processing and roasting) preserves only 30% of antioxidants found in the original bean. LAVLE by the Good Chocolate Company is made using a special process preserving around 80% of the antioxidants within the bean. In this unique product, each serving contains 200mg of flavanoids.
3. Raw Cacao products are nutritionally superior
Additional benefits of cacao include the high fibre content, high iron content and is packed with magnesium.
Research has shown cacao and chocolate to have benefits in reducing depression and feelings of anxiety. This is due to the serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine - naturally occuring neurotransmitters within the bean.
All products from The Good Chocolate Company maximise the health benefits from the cacao bean and are tasty and indulgent! They are organic and not contaminated with any nasty pesticides or chemicals.
Enjoy all the health benefits of chocolate without worrying about the sugar overload. Happy munching!
