How to Pick a Healthy Chocolate Dessert? | Doctor Explains 🍫
Join me as I tour the Versace Dessert table explaining which are the healthy options and which are not and why.
The cocoa bean, native to the Amazon basin, is now widely found in countries across the world. The bean goes through a process of drying and fermenting to produce cocoa solids and cocoa butter, the foundation of chocolate.
Chocolate is regarded as being beneficial to health the higher the percentage it is. For example 90% dark chocolate contains more cocoa and less butter, sugar and emulsifiers, giving it a bitter taste. As a rule of thumb, the lighter the colour of the chocolate, the less percentage of cocoa there is.
Chocolate with a cocoa content of over 70% is generally regarded as being nutritious with claims of helping to lower cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and being packed with anti oxidants. Of course, these benefits are only seen when eaten in strict moderation as too much can have an adverse effect on the body, causing weight gain, lethargy and other medical illnesses.
So next time you’re at the dessert table looking at your options, think with your mind rather than your tummy so that both your body and heart will be happy.
Please remember to always eat treats sensibly as part of a full healthy balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
