Our Extra-Dark Organic Chocolate
is hand-crafted with intensely aromatic cocoa from South America, the Carribean, and Africa, and boasts a whopping 80% cocoa solids … rich in flavor and beneficial polyphenols.
Unlike some chocolate, ours is made with raw cocoa that has not been treated with alkali … a standard process called Dutching, which destroys most of cocoa’s beneficial antioxidants.
Savored, our Extra-Dark Organic Chocolate is as heart-healthful as it is soul-satisfying. The polyphenol content of cocoa solids exceeds that of all common foods, including tea, berries, or grapes.
- The polyphenols abundant in extra-dark chocolate (catechins, procyanidins, and more) appear to support artery function and promote healthy blood fat and clotting profiles.
- The 7 grams of saturated fat per half-bar consist of stearic acid from cocoa butter, which has no known adverse effects on blood cholesterol profiles.
