The Health benefit of Chocolate

Chocolate which is high in cocoa solids (70% or more) is now recognised as having many qualities that are beneficial to health

There are benefits in Chocolate for both men and women:

What is the healthiest chocolate?

It's a fact that plain dark chocolate products containing a minimum 70% or more cocoa solids are the healthiest and the best way to satisfy a craving for chocolate, without consuming too much sugar and saturated fat or HVO. If your a Milk or White Chocolate lover, choose products with a minimum of 30% chocolate solids (Milk Chocolate) or 30% chocolate butter (white chocolate).

Chocolate lovers go wrong by choosing cheap (& not so cheap)  brand name chocolate or chocolates, low in chocolate solids (ave is less than 20% chocolate solids, but some can contain less than 7%), all are high in sugar content, saturated fats and other nasties such as HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil) and consequently can be disastrous for both teeth and health. 

Incidentally, chocolates, both the commercial variety and (sadly) many hand made chocolates varieties, are some of the worst culprits with centres consisting almost exclusively of flavoured Fondant and Praline, fondant is virtually 100% sugar and pralines can be just as bad.
