So how do you know the chocolate you are buying is good?

- Look for cocoa solids (the actual chocolate) and cocoa butter (the creaminess of the chocolate) as the main ingredients
- If there are ingredients that you do not recognise or cannot pronounce then it is probably not a good choice!
- Good quality chocolate will simply contain ingredients such as cocoa solids, cocoa butter, lecithin (this prevents the chocolate from separating), a small amount of sugar, vanilla, nuts or other additions.
- Don’t forget that we can get essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants from seasonal fruit and vegetables, not just chocolate!
- It is true that we can have too much of a good thing, so remember to exercise ‘portion caution’! A few squares (not a whole block!) of good quality dark chocolate is all you need to reap the health benefits
