How To Choose The Healthiest Chocolate

How To Choose The Healthiest Chocolate

It should come as no surprise that we at Earth Echo are full-fledged chocolate lovers. We love chocolate and eat it every day but the vast majority of chocolate bars on the market aren’t exactly healthy. Even the “healthier” options contain added ingredients like cane sugar (or worse, high fructose corn syrup), milk, soy lecithin, and other ingredients that are harmful to your health. 

Dark chocolate is a well-known superfood that provides an impressive list of health benefits. But between the commercial processing that strips away nutrients and added unhealthy ingredients, most dark chocolate currently on the market is no better for you than a candy bar. 

How To Choose The Healthiest Chocolate

If you love indulging in chocolate on a daily basis like we do, then it makes sense to choose something that won’t do you more harm than good. When it comes to choosing the healthiest possible chocolate option, here’s what to look out for:

  • Opt for chocolate with 70% or higher cacao percentage to get the highest benefit from the antioxidants in chocolate.
  • Make sure cacao is the first ingredient listed (which should naturally be the case in higher percentage chocolates).
  • Avoid unnecessary ingredients like trans fat, milk, artificial flavorings, and high amounts of sugar.
  • Skip alkali processed chocolate (also known as Dutch processed), as this process is known to strip away the healthy antioxidants found in cacao.
  • Look for fair-trade and organic options as these are likely to be higher quality, pesticide free, and ethically sourced.
  • BONUS: Chocolate with added functional superfood ingredients can help provide your body with even more nourishment and health benefits.
