Our Members Asked:
I heard somewhere to avoid chocolate with "processed with alkali" in the ingredients. Is that true?
Answer:Cocoa processed with alkali, commonly called "dutched" cocoa, is not unsafe, but may offer less health benefit due to a reduction in flavanols. However, ConsumerLab has identified at least one product with alkalized cocoa that is high in flavanols. Details about this, as well as our tests of popular products, are found in the Cocoa Powders, Dark Chocolate, and Cocoa Supplements Review >>
