Is Eating Chocolate Every Day Good for You?
What sort of chocolate is best?
Generally, the darker the chocolate (look for 70% and above cocoa), the higher the flavonoid content. Flavonoids are found in foods like broccoli, onions, fruit, as well as tea, and may help protect people against some types of cancer and heart disease.'It's most likely that you get more flavonoids in a dark chocolate that lists cocoa beans, cacao, chocolate liquor or cocoa mass on its ingredients list, so check the label,' says Cooper. 'Milk chocolate tends to have very few flavonoids and white chocolate has none.'
