Some Concern About Theobromine in Dark Chocolate --
ConsumerLab's tests of dark chocolates show them to contain about as much theobromine (a caffeine-related stimulant) as heart-healthy flavanols. So is all this theobromine good or bad? A recent study suggests that it may be an issue for people who need to control their blood sugar, while, on the positive side, it lowers LDL “bad" cholesterol. Get the details in the "Concerns and Cautions"
section of the Cocoa Powders, Dark Chocolate, Extracts, Nibs, & Supplements Review, which includes comparisons of the amounts of theobromine
in popular products, as well as amounts of flavanols, caffeine, and contaminants.
