Chocolate

The wise men now tell us that cacao is healthy, but "chocolate," which is loaded with many other ingredients (sugar, fat--stuff like that) is bad for you, unless you make sure it's at least 70% cacao.

I have since learned that there is a different percentage for each time of day:

Milk Chocolate is the most frequently consumed type of chocolate in the U.S.  Milk chocolate contains sweeteners, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, milk (or cream), and flavors.  Milk chocolate must [to meet Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards] contain at least 10 percent chocolate liquor and 12 percent milk solids to meet the US standard of identity.  The only fats allowed in milk chocolate are cocoa butter and milk fat.


10 percent chocolate
