So How much to eat?
The first phrase for every food is used which is " Moderation is key "
As with any sweet treat, moderation is key. Some dark chocolates contain more sugar and fat than others, although itâs typically a healthy fat from cocoa butter. Generally the higher the percentage of cocoa the less sugar it will contain, but this is not always the case.
Read the labels to ensure just what your dark chocolate contains. *And strive to not exceedÂ 1 ounce per day*
1 ounce of chocolate is equal to 1 square of it. 6 ounce of dark chocolate usually make a cup.! Also,Â milk binds to the antioxidantsÂ eliminating their ability to fight free radicals, so eating milk chocolate or drinking milk with dark chocolate has few to no health benefits.
Consult your healthcare practitioner if youâre concerned about caffeine, kidney stones, or migraines. For the best dark chocolate, shop at local chocolatiers, and buy organic and/or fair-trade whenever possible.
