Raw chocolate Vs Regular Chocolate
What is raw chocolate? And how is it different from regular chocolate? How is it made? I have done some research and I am here to answer some of your questions on this subject.
The first thing you need to remember is the main difference between regular chocolate and raw chocolate: the cacao beans used to make raw chocolate are not roasted, or minimally processed. Most raw chocolate is made of cacao beans, cacao or coconut butter and agave or maple syrup, which are used as sweeteners. Some add extracts and essences, nuts, or fruit, to give more flavour.
On the other hand, when it comes to regular chocolate, cacao beans are roasted at 130°C, which means that all the nutrients are altered. To continue, most of these chocolates are boosted in sugars, additives and saturated fats, which is believed to be very harmful to one’s health in the long term.
Raw chocolate has several health benefits. Some even consider it to be a superfood: high in antioxidants and minerals, magnesium and potassium to be more accurate. It is thought to release serotonin, which is a mood-booster brain chemical that also helps reduce cravings for sweets.
