Gerbs Dark Chocolate Chips – Miniatures (Semi Sweet Cacao) contain only Organic Cane Sugar, Unsweetened Chocolate and Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter. Our Allergy Friendly Dutch Cocoa Powder only contains cocoa powder! Cocoa powder is what you get when you press most of the cocoa butter out of cocoa nibs and grind the rest to a powder. All of the flavonol-related health benefits come from the cocoa.
What is Cocoa Butter? Cocoa butter is the fat that is in the cacao bean. It melts at human body temperature, and chocolate generally contains some amount of cocoa butter since it gives the finished chocolate product the “mouthfeel” that most people expect chocolate to have.
Did you know that the cocoa in dark chocolate contains high concentrations of flavanoids that may provide health benefits such as decreasing the risk factors for cardiovascular disease? Compared to green tea, red wine, and many fruits and vegetables ounce for ounce, the cocoa in dark chocolate has greater flavonoid content.
