PURONERO, the truly excellent vegan dark chocolate

Published on 9 October 2018 | Category: Products, Vegan Line

Known as “the food of the gods”, praised for its properties as an elixir of life, chocolate has been portrayed in several legendary films, songs, books and culinary traditions, and July 7 is World Chocolate Day when it is celebrated in all its shapes and flavours.

Why is it so appreciated? Simple, because its benefits are multiple and are felt in many different ways.

Universally considered a “divine” experience, cocoa is not only used to please one’s palate but is also rich in important antioxidants and flavonoids which act positively on bad cholesterol and systemic inflammation, reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases and atherosclerosis.

But let’s be honest. Despite the importance of its health benefits, these are not the reasons that push us to choose it. The writer Frederic Morton claims that “life without chocolate is a life that lacks something important”. In fact, we often treat ourselves to an ice cream or a dessert with a classic “dark taste” to enjoy its intense flavour, pamper ourselves after the hassle of a busy day or simply to savour it as a reward. Its effects are felt positively also on one’s mood, to the point of being considered a natural antidepressant. Chocolate, especially if dark, increases the production of serotonin, known as the good mood factor. Important studies by Northwestern University have discovered that when chocolate activates the areas of the cerebral cortex linked to pleasure it transmits to the body a pleasant feeling of deep satisfaction.

Both a source of energy and of many other benefits, it is a food loved by most of us and not very easily given up. There is, however, chocolate and chocolate: the most authoritative nutritionists recommend dark chocolate which, with less sugar and a higher cocoa content, enhances all its exquisite qualities.
