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.
