Introducing the Healthy Indulgence Collection from Cocosia Artisan Chocolates
UAE: Dubai’s chocolate emporium, Cocosia, has create a range of healthy options to start the year.
Dark chocolate, in fact, is a “Super-food”. Researchers have discovered that both dark chocolate and cocoa have more powerful antioxidants than most other foods. Antioxidants are thought to protect the body from diseases such as cancer and heart conditions. Considerable evidence shows that cocoa can be especially protective against cardiovascular disease. Studies also show that the flavanols from cocoa can improve blood flow to the skin and protect it against sun-induced damage, good news for those of us in the Middle East.
Cocosia’s Healthy Indulgence selection allows you to treat yourself to a luxurious sensation for the palate, without the guilt. Each “mendiant” is carefully adorned with nature’s finest nuts and fruit adding to the healthy benefits of their delicious chocolate. Each ingredient has been carefully selected to compliment the chocolate perfectly. These include:
Dried Apricots – high in fibre, antioxidants, iron and potassium. In Latin apricot means “precious”.
Cashew Nuts – rich in iron, copper, magnesium and zinc. Eating an ounce of cashews once a day also decreases your chance of developing gallstones by 25%.
Pistachios Nuts – contain antioxidants, healthy fats and potassium. This super nut helps reduce the risk of diabetes and is also known as the “happy” or “smiling” nut in China and Iran.
Cocoa Nibs – Full of magnesium, fibre, antioxidants, iron and natural feel good properties.
Dried Raspberries – Strengthens the immune system protecting against cancer and infection, prevents wrinkles and are especially beneficial to women’s health.
When considering chocolate for its health benefits, choose only those products that containing more than 60% of cocoa content. Cocosia’s 64% tablet contains a single origin couverture from the region of Madagascar, with fresh notes of red and dried fruits. The high content of cocoa in Cocosia’s 88% tablet provides an intensive flavour experience. This Grand Cru Couverture originates from Venezeula. Or try the 70% tablet, perfectly blended with Criollo & Trinatario beans. Of course, dark chocolate does contain sugar, so should be consumed in small amounts each day.
