HEALTH BENEFITS: High cocoa content for high antioxidant value!
Certified organic, vegan, wheat-free, and gluten-free, 70% dark chocolate is deep in flavor – and that’s a good thing! The higher the chocolate percentage, the more the chocolate has retained its antioxidant value, and the more cacao it contains (the beans that chocolates are made from). Percentages under 70% have been processed or roasted for too long and have lost many of their nutritional components in exchange for reducing the deep flavor of the chocolate. Dark chocolate helps lower cholesterol levels to keep your heart healthy. It also contains flavonoids; a powerful group of antioxidants knows as polyphenols, which help prevent high blood pressure, heart disease, and blood clots.
CULINARY TWIST: Mint lovers delight!
Add your dark chocolate wafers to granola or trail mixes for added nutrition and a boost of energy. For a spin on something sweet, use your favorite cookie recipe to create chocolate thumbprint cookies! Love mint and chocolate together? Add mint (or peppermint) extract, or even crushed candy canes to chocolate cookie dough to create the beloved combination! The sweet and herbed flavor of mint compliments the deep flavor of dark chocolate for an irresistible cookie! Use the same flavor combination for brownies! Break your chocolate wafers into large pieces for pockets of dark chocolate flavor throughout your brownies or other baked goods.
ABOUT CHOCOLATE: Did you know?
You may not get prescribed a bar of chocolate twice a day, but research shows that dark chocolate contains nearly the same amount of serotonin as in many antidepressant medications!
