The Superfood of the Season: Raw Chocolate

Get your dose of antioxidants and soothe your sweet tooth with raw chocolate.
Raw Chocolate Superfood of the Season Dec 14

The latest superfood superstar: raw chocolate, dark chocolate’s slightly stronger, nuttier-tasting cousin. It has approximately three times the disease-fighting antioxidants of dark chocolate because it’s never heated above 45 degrees, which companies claim helps retain the antioxidants and enzymes that can get lost during dark- and milk-chocolate production. Raw chocolate can taste bitter, so start with bars that add fruit to help tame the bite.
