Enjoy Bittersweet Chocolate Day

Did you know that today is Bittersweet Chocolate Day? Just when you thought the holiday sweets are over! Thankfully, bittersweet chocolate is good for you!

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate is the best candy for your teeth. It has antioxidants called flavonoids, which help your heart health.

Sugar Myths on Bittersweet Chocolate Day

According to the American Diabetes Association, it’s a myth that eating too much sugar causes diabetes. A big concern is diabetic retinopathy. People with uncontrolled blood sugar levels “cause irreversible damages to the blood vessels in the retina,” says the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

This can lead to blindness. When in doubt, choose healthier options instead of foods loaded with sugar!

In a nutshell, it’s okay to have a piece of dark chocolate once in a while. The more cacao, the more flavanols. When shopping at the grocery store, opt for at least 70 percent cacao solids.
