There are a lot of less than desirable headlines circulating the news these days, so here’s a taste of some news we can all do with. Chocolate, contrary to what some may say, is not all bad. In fact, it can be quite the opposite.
Let’s start with the foundational ingredient – Cacao. Most famous for its role in chocolate production, cacao contains important compounds that can benefit your health.
The first and most notable benefit is that it is rich in Polyphenols – these are naturally occurring antioxidants that are known to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and lower blood pressure. It can also improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
But, before you start binge eating bars of chocolate, it is important to state that chocolate, just like anything else you consume, should be enjoyed in moderation. Overindulgence in any form should always be avoided. There are also, of course, other foods you can consume to enjoy similar health benefits – but, we believe a serving of chocolate can go a really long way if you truly want to enjoy life.
It is also important to note that while chocolate has several health benefits, not every product is made equal. At North South Confections, we pay special attention to how our cocoa is sourced and how our carefully crafted product is transported.
Our cocoa is sourced from small farms in South America and we wholeheartedly embrace Fair Trade principles. Likewise, our fruit fillings and flavours are gathered from a network of trusted global food merchants and our sustainability ethos extends to our recyclable packaging, too.
When you treat yourself to one of our decadent chocolate experiences, you can rest easy knowing that you are enjoying only the highest quality, sustainably sourced ingredients in every bite.
So go ahead and order your favorite chocolate here. It’s the healthy thing to do ;)
