There is a chocolate craze going on today among raw foodists. There are some who are touting it as the next best thing to carrot juice. But there are some things we need to realize about chocolate even if it is organic. First, chocolate contains theobromine, a compound similar to caffeine.
There are so many products on the market today that the body has no need for a dose of chocolate as its antioxidant content because chocolate also contains a good dose of theobromine. There are so many other foods on the market that have powerful antioxidant properties without the negative effects of theobromine, or caffeine for that matter.
