Dark or Milk Chocolate: Which Should You Choose

It's almost impossible to imagine a world without chocolate.

Aside from being a delicious treat, it is a superfood that is filled with nutrition and health benefits. It is not surprising why people love it.

There are so many different kinds of chocolate but there are two main categories: dark and milk chocolate. But what exactly is the difference between these two treats?

Dark or Milk Chocolate?

To put it simply, dark chocolate contains less milk solids compared to milk chocolates. Hence, dark chocolate has a more pronounced chocolate flavor when compared with milk chocolate.

So, which one is better?

When it comes to taste and flavor, there is no single answer. It's a matter of personal preference. Some people like dark chocolate, while others prefer milk chocolate.

Which Is Healthier?

There are other ways that these two chocolate types can be compared. For example, which of these two chocolate types is healthier?

The answer to that is quite clear. Dark chocolate is a lot healthier than, not just milk chocolate, but all other chocolate types. This is because the more that chocolate is processed, the more it loses the components that make it healthy.

The flavanols which give the antioxidant properties to chocolate also gives it a bitter taste. As the chocolate is processed and other ingredients are added, it starts to lose its bitter taste, which is an indication that its flavanol content is also going down.

So, if you like to eat the healthiest kind of chocolate, you should choose dark chocolate over milk chocolate all the time.
