How About Going Organic This Easter?
Just some food for thought. Have you considered going organic and filling your Easter baskets with organic chocolates? It’s very healthful!
Why Organic Chocolate?
Raw, organic chocolate is a wise choice. Organic chocolate is not polluted with toxic chemicals and pesticides.
Commercially produced cocoa beans are grown with more pesticides than any other plant, besides cotton! Chocolate that is marketed as organic is grown without the use of chemical pesticides.
Best of all, consuming organic chocolate can offer significant health benefits. The variations in processing sweetened organic chocolate are the secret to maintaining the natural health benefits.
Conventional vs. Organic Chocolate
- Conventional chocolate is usually sweetened withÂ corn syrup. Corn syrup isÂ an artificial sweetener derived from genetically modified corn.
- Organic chocolate is sweetened with fruits (dates, raisins, etc.) malt syrups, or cane juices.
Organic chocolates contain plenty of flavonoids. These areÂ a form of antioxidant that can help support your immune system. It will also protect your body from illness and possibly even prevent premature aging.
You can find high quality organic chocolate in health food stores, online and possibly at your local grocery store.Â The demand is on the rise.
