Dark chocolate is high in antioxidants.
Dark chocolate is healthy chocolate!
Cacoa powder (dark chocolate) is the highest-rated antioxidant food source-much greater than red wine or green tea.
The USDA uses the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) scale to measure the antioxidant capacities of different foods.
Unprocessed cocoa powder is number one and has an ORAC value of 26,000 per 100 grams (3.5 ounces). Number two is Acai Berry with an ORAC value of 18,500 per 100 grams, along with blueberries and lots of other natural ingredients. What do these numbers mean?
"Darker is better." Dark fruits like blueberries, grapes, raspberries, blackberries and Acai berries are loaded with antioxidants, as are green, leafy vegetables like spinach.
The Chocolate Manufacturers Association says dark chocolate contains eight times the number of polyphenol antioxidants found in strawberries.
