Transcript of "NS0850247 Life by Chocolate"

  1. 1. Life by Chocolate A Guilt-Free Indulgence http://www.chocolategourmet.co.uk
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>My presentation will be about my biggest addiction…chocolate! Luckily for me, and other self-proclaimed “chocoholics,” chocolate has been proven to have health benefits which I will explore in my presentation. </li></ul>http://www.treatshopfactory.com/
  3. 3. The History of Chocolate <ul><li>Chocolate originates from the cacao tree. </li></ul><ul><li>First used by early Aztec civilizations as a form of currency and was considered to be the food of the gods. </li></ul><ul><li>Christopher Columbus discovered the beans in the early 1500s. </li></ul><ul><li>Herman Cortez introduced chocolate to the Western World forty years later. </li></ul><ul><li>Chocolate drinks quickly became the most popular drink in Spain. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Chocolate houses” acted as modern day cafés where people could drink chocolate and socialize with other chocoholics. </li></ul><ul><li>In the 1800s, milk was added to basic chocolate to create the solid chocolate that we all know and love today. </li></ul>http://www.nndb.com Columbus Cortez http://www.chocolate.org/conquistador.jpg

  5. 5. Amount of Chocolate Consumed in One Year Statistics: http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/valentines/facts.html
  6. 6. Health Benefits <ul><li>Chocolate is the most flavonoid (antioxidant property) rich food. </li></ul><ul><li>Men who consume high amounts of chocolate are less likely to develop cardiovascular disease than men who consume lower amounts. </li></ul><ul><li>Cocoa products have been proven to lower blood pressure and give consumers a general sense of well-being. </li></ul><ul><li>Dark chocolate has the most flavonoids and is therefore, the healthiest. </li></ul>http://www.terracelibrary.ca/kid_files/webpages/chocolate/heart.jpg A Chocolate Heart
  7. 7. Which is the Healthiest? Unsweetened : nearly 100% cocoa mass, but may be too bitter to eat Dark : 50-85% cocoa mass, contains the most flavonoids, it is the healthiest choice Milk : 30-40% cocoa mass White : 0% cocoa mass, but is made from cocoa butter (therefore, it does not appear on the graph above) Statistics: http://www.chocolate.com/chocolatier/chocolate-by-the-numbers.html

  9. 9. Conclusion Life by Chocolate teaches that chocolate doesn’t have to be an occasional indulgence. It can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle as long as it is in moderation. So, if someone desires the benefits that chocolate offers, a small amount of dark chocolate is the best choice. It is as the fictitious candy maker Willy Wonka says, “Little surprises around every corner, but nothing dangerous.”
