Remember that childhood recurring dream, the one where you found yourself locked up in the chocolate factory after the grownups all went home? In modern civilization, the thought of chocolate for nutrition is unheard of. But for some, it is part of their balanced metabolic lifestyle.
Welcome to ShowTime Chocolate, distributors of Xoçai™ (Show-Sigh) Healthy Chocolate, returning for their third year to the Hamilton Spectator’s Nutrition & Wellness Show. Their line of products keeps on maturing, but allows them not to! These guys have an anti-aging regime that’s easy to swallow, literally!
Does this mean that chocolate is a healthy food? Yes! when properly prepared and validated with scientific nutritional support.
Natural raw cacao is flavanol-rich. However, once natural raw cacao is processed,
whether into cocoa powder or dark confectionery chocolate, the “health” of the final product is usually flavanol-poor.
The word “dark” in dark chocolate doesn’t automatically mean good flavanol content. Once most suppliers enhance the taste, texture and appearance of natural raw cacao to eliminate its bitterness, they have stripped the bean of its active flavanols.
When dark chocolate bars read 74/84/90% cocoa, it is safe to say 74/84/90% of the chocolate bar is made from the best quality raw cacao they could get their hands on. The questions beg to be asked:
- What was the quality of the cacao to begin with?
- What process did they put the cacao through?
- What comprises the remaining 26/16/10% of the dark chocolate bar?
If a company doesn’t boast a measurable flavanol count on its nutritional label, but uses marketing buzz words like “made from flavanol-rich natural cacao,” then you know it is actually lacking flavanols and therefore not healthy for you.
The entire line of Xoçai™ Healthy Chocolate products goes through quarterly scientific testing and their “finished product” measurements are listed on all packaging materials, from nutritional facts to wrappers as their cold-pressing techniques scientifically retain the flavanols in the product that you consume.
Flavanol–rich cocoa has a profound influence on the blood supply, not only to the extremities, but to the brain and cardiovascular systems. This is a head-to-toe medicinal punch that knocks out most or all of the diseases that can hit you on a metabolic level. In addition, flavanol-rich cocoa can reduce the inflammation that causes aging, as healthy blood flowing to all your vital organs keeps you young in mind, body and soul.
