Good for You

Chocolate is good for you, but not all chocolate is good for you. Zazubean is committed to making good dark chocolate ( > 70% cacao) by putting only good clean ingredients into every bar that are organic, gluten-free, soy-free & Gmo-free.

There is a reason why the Mayan’s & Aztec’s believed that Cacao was a gift of the gods, because this rich flavoured bean that grew on trees was made into a hearty drink that was nutritious and believed to have healing properties. Today, scientists still believe this and have found that dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants (Flavonoids) that may even protect against heart disease and high blood pressure by reducing the bad cholesterol and increasing the good cholesterol HDL. Eating chocolate with a cocoa content of 70% and above is much healthier because of health properties of cocoa and the lowered sugar content.

Does chocolate make you fat? Chocolate does have cocoa butter in it, but the majority of these plant fats in chocolate are the cholesterol lowering fats. The key is moderation, you can enjoy 2 oz ( good chocolate) a day and not feel guilty.

When I was in Switzerland visiting chocolate factories (where else would you go to find the best chocolate in the world). I could not help notice that all the employees in the factory were not overweight. I asked the CEO in one of facilities that I visited how she managed to stay so slim surrounded by all this delicious chocolate. She looked at me with a puzzled look as if I was crazy and said to me “chocolate does not make you fat”. I have to agree as the Co-Founder of Zazubean, I eat chocolate every day and I can attest that it does not make me fat. In fact I feel much healthier because of that little treat that I allow myself every day and sometimes several times a day.
