Chocolate Life

Vital Choice Chocolates

Vital ChoiceI spent last weekend at JJ Virgin’s mastermind meeting in Los Angeles. JJ never holds an event at a venue unless the catering staff is able to provide: gluten, dairy, soy, egg, peanut, sugar, and corn free meals. This weekend was no exception. We were served fantastic organic meals and one of the event sponsors, Vital Choice-Wild seafood and organics saved all of our lives by providing incredibly healthy and delicious chocolate (evaluated by a true connoisseur) for dessert. All of these chocolates are 80% cocoa but they were not at all bitter! I tried every flavor-just to make sure. Here is how Vital Choice-Wild seafood and organics describes their products:

Our Extra-Dark Organic Chocolate is hand-crafted with intensely aromatic cocoa grown in Latin America and the Caribbean, and boasts a whopping 80% cocoa solids … rich in flavor and beneficial polyphenols.

Unlike some chocolate, ours is made with raw cocoa that has not been treated with alkali ... a standard process called Dutching, which destroys most of cocoa's beneficial antioxidants. Our chocolate features:

  • Gluten-Free
  • Certified Fair Trade
  • Certified Kosher-Dairy (Square K)
  • Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth, Inc.
  • Made with raw cocoa for maximum antioxidant content

Health benefits of dark chocolate

Savored sparingly, our Extra-Dark Organic Chocolate is as heart-healthful as it is soul-satisfying.

Our extra-dark chocolate contains 80% cocoa solids, which have not been treated with alkali ... a standard process called Dutching, which destroys most of cocoa's beneficial polyphenols.

The polyphenol content of cocoa solids exceeds that of all common foods, including tea, berries, or grapes.

  • The polyphenols abundant in extra-dark chocolate (catechins, procyanidins, and more) appear to support artery function and promote healthy blood fat and clotting profiles.
  • The 7 grams of saturated fat per half-bar consist of stearic acid from cocoa butter, which has no known adverse effects on blood cholesterol profiles.

If you are serious about indulging in your favorite hobby (or simply your reason for living) and you want to do it in the healthiest way possible, try Vital Choice-Wild seafood and organics. You won’t be disappointed.
