Chocolate Analysis: History and Health Benefits

By Nina and Helen


A brief history

A Brief History

  • 90 percent of chocolate's long history, it was strictly a beverage, and sugar didn't have anything to do with it.

  • Etymologists trace the origin of the word "chocolate" to the Aztec word "xocoatl," which referred to a bitter drink brewed from cacao beans.

  • Many modern historians have estimated that chocolate has been around for about 2000 years, but recent research suggests that it may be even older.

  • Sweetened chocolate didn't appear until Europeans discovered the Americas and sampled the native cuisine.

  • By the 17th century, chocolate was a fashionable drink throughout Europe, believed to have nutritious, medicinal and even aphrodisiac properties. 1828, a Dutch chemist found a way to make powdered chocolate by removing about half the natural fat (cacao butter) from chocolate liquor, pulverizing what remained and treating the mixture with alkaline salts to cut the bitter taste. His product became known as "Dutch cocoa," and it soon led to the creation of solid chocolate.

  • The first modern chocolate bar is credited to Joseph Fry, who in 1847 discovered that he could make a moldable chocolate paste by adding melted cacao butter back into Dutch cocoa.

  • By 1868, a little company called Cadbury was marketing boxes of chocolate candies in England.

  • In the 20th century, the word "chocolate" expanded to include a range of affordable treats with more sugar and additives than actual cacao in them, often made from the hardiest but least flavorful of the bean varieties (forastero).

Antioxidents and other health benefits

Antioxidents - and other Health Benefits

 These health benefits are only found in dark chocolate- but it is always important to eat any chocolate in moderation and reduce other fat and sugar intakes when you eat it.

Antioxidants gobble up free radicals, destructive molecules that are implicated in heart disease and other ailments.

"Our findings indicate that milk may interfere with the absorption of antioxidants from chocolate ... and may therefore negate the potential health benefits that can be derived from eating moderate amounts of dark chocolate."

  • Lower Blood Pressure: Studies have shown that consuming a small bar of dark chocolate everyday can reduce blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure. 

  • Lower Cholesterol: Dark chocolate has also been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) by up to 10%.

Things to consider

Things to Consider

- Eating a small portion of dark chocolate everyday can have large health benefits, but that doesn't mean that you should binge on huge amounts chocolate everyday.

-Remember that the heath benefits of chocolate are mainly found in dark chocolate, but there are vitamins and minerals in all varieties.

-Chocolate is a food high in fats and sugars, and should always be eaten in moderation.


Analysis

Analysis 

-When you compare servings of chocolate, it is clear that Hershey's has less calories and a larger serving size for their chocolate. 

-Hershey's chocolate also usually has more ingredients than Lindt which tends to have closer to the minimum of ingredients required for that type of chocolate. 

-Lindt chocolate also tends to have much more fat in it than Hershey's.  

-Another interesting thing to consider that the amount of carbohydrates in  the Hershey's dark chocolate is almost twice as much as in the Lindt chocolate. 

-Lindt chocolate also has either equal or more protein than Hershey's chocolate

-Interestingly enough Hershey's chocolate has lactose added to it along with milk and milk fat; where Lindt only uses milk or in the case of dark chocolate it doesn't use any milk. Because Hershey's puts milk in the dark chocolate, the health benefits become diminished.
