What about Chocolate?

Pin this!
Chocolate is one of the processed foods obtained from cocoa. Because it mixes the non-fat cocoa beans with the fatty cocoa butter, the polyphenol content and antioxidant power of chocolate is lower than those of cocoa.

The processes involved in the production of chocolate can also degrade or remove some of the healthful ingredients of cocoa.
In addition, chocolate packs higher calories since it includes the fatty cocoa butter and other additives such as sugar and milk. However, dark chocolate is the closest chocolate to raw cocoa, and most studies on the health benefits of chocolate are done with dark chocolate.
Even though chocolate differs from cocoa, it has also been shown to help reduce weight.
This is a remarkable testament to the weight-reducing powers of cocoa since the cocoa polyphenols still present in chocolate are potent enough to overcome the weight-giving calories that chocolates pack.
In a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine and involving more than 1000 volunteers, researchers found that regular consumption of chocolate reduces body mass index (BMI). Also of note is the result which showed that regular consumption instead of consuming more chocolate is the better route to weight loss.


7 health benefits of drinking hot cocoa

From the 'too good to be true' file: Hot cocoa has some really surprising health benefits.

We keep hearing more and more about the health benefits of chocolate, can the same be applied to hot cocoa as well? As it turns out, the answer is a resounding yes.
Research continues to show us that antioxidants help prevent cancer, heart disease, age-related macular degeneration and aging in general because they fight free radicals in the body. The trendy so-called superfoods are the ones bursting with antioxidants — acai, goji berries, blueberries and pomegranate have become the superfood darlings. But antioxidants come in surprising forms too, like in vehicles once considered more vice than health food, such as coffee, red wine, and yes, chocolate. In fact, that's one of the areas where chocolate, especially in the form of hot cocoa, shines. Here's how.
1. According to a study conducted at Cornell University, the antioxidant concentration in hot cocoa is almost twice as strong as red wine. Cocoa's concentration was two to three times stronger than that of green tea and four to five times stronger than that of black tea.
2. Professor Chang Yong Lee, the leader of the Cornell study, added that the "hot" in "hot chocolate" is important as well. More antioxidants are released when it's heated up.
3. A cup of hot cocoa contains 611 milligrams of the phenolic compound gallic acid equivalents (GAE) and 564 milligrams of the flavonoid epicatechin equivalents (ECE). The antioxidant gallic acid is used to treat internal hemorrhages, albuminuria (the presence of albumin in the urine, which can indicate kidney disease) and diabetes.
4. Although a regular bar of chocolate has strong antioxidant activity, the health benefits may be outweighed because of the saturated fats present — cocoa generally has much less fat per serving compared to the 8 grams of fat in a standard chocolate bar.
5. The flavonoids help your body process nitric oxide, which is why hot cocoa can improve blood flow, help lower your blood pressure and improve heart health.
6. The flavonoids in hot chocolate also help prevent platelets in your blood from mingling together and forming clots.
7. According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, drinking hot chocolate can help you think better too. The flavonoids increase the blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Since dementia is caused by a reduced flow of blood to the brain, researchers think it could be treated with cocoa.
Now comes the tricky part. Commercial instant hot cocoa mixes are often more of an artificial monstrosity that may eradicate any good the cocoa may have to offer. One of the most popular mixes, for example, lists cocoa fifth on the list of ingredients, beneath the higher-level ingredients of sugar, corn syrup and a medley of vegetable oils.

                                 Stabilize Blood Sugar
Studies also show that beta-glucan has beneficial effects in diabetes as well. Type  2 diabetes patients given foods high in this type of oat fiber or given oatmeal or oat  bran rich foods experienced much lower rises in blood sugar compared to those who were given white rice or bread. Starting out your day with a blood sugar stabilizing food such as oats may make it easier to keep blood sugar levels under control the rest of the day, especially when the rest of your day is also supported with nourishing fiber-rich foods.
They’re Serious Business for Your Heart
Oats have been one of the most consistent foods linked to preventing heart disease. Thirty-seven studies have shown when oats are eaten every morning, they provide a reduced risk for heart disease. Just leave out the sugar, milk, and butter so you get the benefits. You don’t need those thanks to yummy toppings and ingredients like non-dairy milk, almonds, berries, stevia, nut butter, and sliced bananas or walnuts, right?

They Keep the Bad Bugs Away
Oats’ beneficial fibers come specifically from a type of soluble fiber known as beta-glucans, which have been found to improve immune function and keep harmful bacteria away that leads to illness. Beta-glucans in oats have also been linked to even preventing cancer, especially breast and colon cancer. This is pure proof that consuming oatmeal as part of a healthy, balanced diet is a wonderful way to take care of your immune system naturally. Try topping your oats with high-antioxidant berries to protect your body even further.

The Healthiest Way of Cooking Oats
Different types of oats require slightly different cooking methods for making hot cereal or porridge. For all types, it is best to add the oats to cold water and then cook at a simmer. The preparation of rolled oats and steel-cut oats require similar proportions using two parts water to one part oats. Rolled oats take approximately 15 minutes to cook while the steel-cut variety takes about 30 minutes. Due to their consistency, oat groats require more time and more water. Use three parts water to one part oat groats and simmer for approximately 50 minutes.
