What is high antioxidant dark chocolate? Is there a difference between high antioxidant dark chocolate and candy chocolate that you can find at the grocery store or the big box stores? Actually there is a difference. Most candy chocolate is made with waxes, fillers and processed sugars that have been heated or dutched and processed. High antioxidant dark chocolate is cold pressed in a patented process, not heated or dutched like the traditional candy. Cold pressed healthy chocolate, specifically XO healthy chocolate, is sweetened with acai and blueberry and is full of antioxidants from raw cacao. Unlike candy, this healthy chocolate is diabetic and diet friendly as well. Most of the products are even gluten free.

They also provide cardiovascular benefits, such as helping to reduce the risk for developing heart disease, stroke, cancer and even premature aging.”
