It's the moment chocolate lovers everywhere have been waiting for: there's now a chocolate that's actually healthy.
Kuka Xoco, a Boston based herbal technologies company, claims to have invented 'medicinal' chocolate. The scientists behind this research claim that this new kind of chocolate could be eaten as a medicine.
This chocolate (which is only 35% fat) is rich in antioxidants and minerals that reduce a person’s blood pressure and the risk of a stroke.
There is a slight catch: it tastes extremely bitter and requires fat and sugar to make it actually taste, well, good.
Thankfully, they’re working on a solution to that problem, by using a herb from the Andean region that counteracts the bitter taste, thereby eliminating the need for the chocolate’s unhealthier ingredients.
If this goes into mass production, you might look forward to a day when chocolate actually makes you healthier person.
