Many people in Punta Gorda Florida have asked questions about the science of XO. “Does XO Have ANY Science Behind It’s Health Claims?” is a question that has been asked more than once in Florida.
The answer is ‘Yes’, there is science behind the notion of ‘healthy chocolate’. XO is one of several companies selling healthy chocolate for the health benefits, and while there are many things you can do to maintain a healthy lifestyle, eating chocolate is certainly one of them.
Are we advocating that you run down to your nearest Punta Gorda Florida grocery store and buy a few candy bars for lunch? Absolutely not. There are some specific ways to each chocolate that are deemed healthy. Chocolate, after all, is a natural substance, and when it is prepared in a natural way, it can be a healthy treat.
One of the unique ways that XO prepares healthy chocolate is by a method called ‘cold press’. This means we don’t heat our chocolate in the process of making it, which allows it to maintain most of it’s natural state. We also avoid adding lots of sugars and other unnecessary ingredients, helping to reduce the impact of your snack.
Her is a quick review and some links to the science and studies behind XO’s healthy chocolate, and a few of the reasons why I like to seel this in my business. It may not be for everyone, but if you are looking for a healthy chocolate snack, XO is a leader and provides a great product.
NOTE that many of these studies regard XO chocolate, specifically, however that many are for natural chocolate including cacao or cocoa in its natural form.
