Why Chocolate may be good for the heart – NY Times – Readers pick’s on top comments

“As NY’s only chocolate sommelier, pairing craft “REAL” chocolate with another heart healthy pleasure – wine. I’ve known about the healthy components of dark chocolate for many years and share that with guests. However, if you don’t do your research to find quality chocolate, you will not be rewarded with the benefits. Many articles don’t go deep enough to explain the difference between candy (chocolate bars that lead with sugar as the 1st ingredient) and craft organic bars that are at least 70% cacao. Everything is best in moderation. Just because a new study says it’s good from you is not a license to consume an entire bar. Real chocolate is very rich in healthy fats and very filling, a little goes a long way. Invest in a craft bar and savor it slowly, and it’s good for your soul.”
