I come across a lot of food infographics - some are awesome, some just arent worth sharing. This one goes in the former category. It's full of information on facts and myths about one of our favorite foods, CHOCOLATE!
For instance, did you know:
- Chocolate does have nutritional value? 1 dark chocolate bar has more antioxidants - called flavinols - than 2 3/4 cups of green tea!
- Chocolate does not cause acne? Studies in the last 20 years have eliminated chocolate as a source of acne.
- Eating a 1.4oz chocolate bar instead of a carb-rich snack has been shown to increase HDL (GOOD) cholesterol levels?
What flavor do you prefer? I am a fiend for dark chocolate - I like it with a bite, and not too sweet. "White Chocolate" or "Milk Chocolate" I can absolutely pass on - put an amazing piece of Scharffen Berger bittersweet dark chocolate in front of me and I'll fight you for it, every time.
This infographic has inspired us to try bake something chocolate-y - what's your favorite chocolate food?
