Chocolate Facts...



You may be surprised to 
 learn that cacao, the pod from 
 which chocolate is made, is 
 actually a fruit and even more 
 surprised to learn that it is 
 one of the most commonly 
 eaten healthy fruits.
  
 


Recent research studies have shown a link between cocoa and cardiovascular health, with reduced risk of blood clots, strokes and heart attacks.  Cocoa has the highest antioxidant value of all the natural foods in the world!

ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which normally cause cell and tissue damage.  The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food.
