Processed Chocolate Like The Stuff You Find In Stores Is Stripped Of Essential Flavanoids!
Just because it says “dark chocolate” doesn’t mean it is good for you. The chocolate you find in stores is heavily processed including alkalising.
Xocai uses a patented cold pressed method to ensure maximum retention of the essential cocoa flavanoids.
Xocai tastes like the best Belgian chocolate, but it is not candy – Xocai is a supplement you take daily to enjoy the wonderful health benefits of high flavanoid cocoa and the Acai berry.
Alkalizing cocoa beans reduces the total flavanoid content by two-thirds, reducing the antioxidant potential of the product, according to new research.
Cocoa (such as the kind typically found in store-bought chocolate) is alkalised during the manufacturing process to make it easier to mix and digest. Alkalization can also be applied to change the colour of the product.
The health benefits of antioxidant-rich chocolate such as improvements to cardiovascular health have received much recognition in recent years, with positive findings from a number of studies impacting on consumer awareness.
Chocolate manufacturers are using high cocoa content (over 70 per cent) as a means of differentiation, and cocoa has also received attention for its potential in functional food applications.
However, the cocoa content does not necessarily mean that the flavonol content is high, as new research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that alkalizing has negative impacts on the flavonol levels.
“The large decrease found in the flavonoid content of natural cocoa powder, together with the observed change in the monomeric flavanol profile that results from the alkalization treatment, could affect the antioxidant properties and the polyphenol bioavailability of cocoa powder products,” said the study’s authors.
