The well-publised health benefits of dark chocolate have given many chocolate lovers an added reason to indulge in recent years. Sales have doubled in the past five years and are worth £85 million a year in Britain alone. Conveniently forgotten, however, is the fact that a bar of dark chocolate still contains high volumes of fat and sugar. So how do you enjoy the health benefits of cocoa without the worry of an expanding waistline? Raw food expert and nutritionist Jessica Fenton says the answer lies in the anadulterated beans of the cacao pod. This, she says, is the real superfood, and it is quite different from its foil-wrapped relative. Cacao pods, which grow on trees, originated in Central and South America. Ancient South American civilisations prized them so much for their medicinal and aphrodisiacal properties, they even used them as currency. "The modern manufacturing process for chocolate bars involves firstly harvesting the pods, which contain seeds known as cocoa beans,' explains Fenton. 'The pods are crushed and the beans and surrounding pulp extracted, fermented, then dried - either naturally by the sun or mechanically in a factory. 'The dried beans are then roasted, in a similar way to coffee beans. The length of roasting depends on the type and size of the beans, to form cocoa, which is mixed with sugar and fats to form chocolate. Raw cocoa beans, on the other hand, are fermented and dried but not roasted, which preserves their antioxidant content.' Dr Sarah Schenker, a registered dietician from the Nutrition Society, saysL 'The lower levels of antioxidants in dark chocolate result from the effect of high heat during roasting. This process removes micronutrients that often have antioxidant properties and other health benefits.' Antioxidants - found in all fruit, vegetables, herbs and seeds in varying levels - are important because they neutralise molecules called free radicals. Free radicals are generated by external factors such as sun exposure, pollution and cigarette smoke but are also produced by the body during various metabolic processes, or in response to infection to kill viruses. These molecules can damage healthy body tissue, and antioxidants neutralise them. Studies have shown antioxidants consumed in the diet can help protect against everything from heart disease to cancers. Raw cacao powder has nearly four times the antioxidant content of regular dark chocolate, 20 times more than blueberries and 119 times more than bananas. And cacao does more than boost antioxidant levels - studies have shown that if contains a third more essential nutrients than traditional roasted cacao. Cacao contains protein, calcium, carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, magnesium and sulphur. It is a source of phenethylamine (PEA) a naturally occurring chemical released by our brains in large quantities when we are in love. A study carried out by the Univerisity of Maryland showed that PEA is beneficial for depression. It also contains anandamide, a compound that causes feelings of relaxation and satisfaction. Raw chocolate can be bought in powder or nibs - tiny chunks of the crushed, dried beans. Hotel Chocolat offers a range of nibs coated in regular dark chocolate. And raw chocolate can also be bought from most High Street healthfood shops, including Holland & Barrett. --Review, The Mail 31.07.11

HASH(0x9c27b3c0) étoiles sur 5 A delightful book 31 mai 2012
Par Lizbeth - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a beautifully presented book with lovely illustrations and clear recipe instructions. I am gradually working my way through the recipes and was delighted with the birthday cake, which was much admired and enjoyed!

Its well worth making the effort to obtain the ingredients as the results are terrific. The desserts are all healthy and nutritious as well as tasting good.

The cake and biscuits could be kept in the fridge for several days, which is great.

Non-vegan friends have also appreciated my efforts so a winner all round!
HASH(0x9c19c984) étoiles sur 5 I didn't even know you could make healthy chocolate 7 décembre 2013

This cookbook looks fantastic! I have not been able to actually make any of the recipes yet, so will update this once we have, but the actual recipes look really good, and the pictures are really nice. I purchased this because we are moving slowly to a raw vegan diet, at least for the time being, to eradicate some health issues and for permanent weight loss. My husband is begrudgingly going along with this, and one of his biggest issues with it was that he would not be able to eat chocolate. This has solved that problem, because from others I know, this type of chocolate is both healthy to consume (and actually good for you) and supposedly tastes even better than regular chocolate. We'll see... He looked through it and is drooling over some of the pictures and is eager and anxious for me to get going with some of the recipes! :)

You need to be aware though, that this requires LOTS of unusual ingredients, which are not readily available, so be prepared to spend some money initially, stocking up on them (most likely sourced online). Also, it is quite annoying to read some of the author's notes because she is clearly from a part of England where they add an "r" to many words that don't actually have one. For example, she talks about agave nectar as a sweetener, and states that it is pronounced "agar-vay", which is nonsense. The word is pronounced "aga-vay", and only those who add "r" where it doesn't belong would pronounce it the other way. She says that xylitol is pronounced "zy-ler-tol", but again...incorrect. I feel that an editor should have caught this and corrected it, because for the rest of the world who don't add the "r" in to words where it doesn't exist, this could be confusing - especially for people who are unfamiliar with these ingredients. They will then mispronounce them, possibly embarrassing themselves in front of someone else who knows how to correctly pronounce the word. I realize that this is a small point, but those sorts of things annoy me in books, so I figured I'd point it out.
I will try to remember to update once we make some of these, but if I don't, assume that they are delicious if I have not changed the review to reflect otherwise...
Update - I have made some of the recipes in this book and so far they have all been fab! We've enjoyed everything in it and love that it is really healthy too!
