Hey Peekay Friends! This time, we will enter the seductive world of chocolate. Who can resist the incredible delicacy of a piece of chocolate that melts in the mouth? However, chocolate is not only about unforgettable pleasures, but also about benefits that many of us may not know about.

In this article, we'll explore everything we need to know about chocolate, from its definition to the various variants according to taste, and the benefits that lie behind chocolate's delicacy.

Definition of Chocolate

Chocolate is a processed food that is familiar to us. This food is known universally and people in all parts of the world must have tasted chocolate in its entirety or its preparations. Chocolate is made from cocoa beans which are processed to be used as food or drink. The distinctive taste is never forgotten by many people, even many inspirations and unique things can be made from chocolate.

The process of making chocolate goes through several processes such as fermentation, roasting, grinding and mixing with other ingredients such as sugar, milk and fat. Chocolate has become a popular food all over the world.

Chocolate Variants

Chocolate has various variants that differ based on the level of cocoa content, additional ingredients, and the manufacturing process. Among the most common chocolate variants are:

1. Dark Chocolate

Dark Chocolate contains 60-80% cocoa with very little sugar and no milk, so it tastes stronger and bitter than the other types. Dark chocolate also has a higher antioxidant content, which may provide additional health benefits.

2. Milk Chocolate

Milk chocolate contains 20-40% cocoa which is mixed with sugar and milk, so the taste tends to be sweet and the texture is softer. Milk chocolate is commonly used in the manufacture of chocolate candies and desserts.

3. White Chocolate

Unlike dark and milk chocolate, white chocolate does not contain cocoa at all, but cocoa butter with added sugar, vanilla and milk. White chocolate has a sweet and creamy taste, but has a lower antioxidant content than dark chocolate.

Of the 3 chocolate variants above, it is very important for Peekay friends to choose quality chocolate products.

Benefits of Chocolate

In addition to its delicious taste, and is very suitable for food ingredients, chocolate has many benefits for the health of the body. This is because chocolate contains antioxidants that are quite high. Epicatechin contained in chocolate can inhibit the process of lipid oxidation in the body, so it can prevent atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). These antioxidants can also slow down the aging process.

Free radicals that we are exposed to every day can be bound so that they do not interfere with the body's productivity. The content of flavonoids contained in dark chocolate can reduce insulin resistance. It works by helping cells to work properly and to be able to use insulin in the body efficiently. That way the risk of developing diabetes will decrease.

If Peekay Friend is sad or in a bad mood, eating a bar of dark chocolate can lift your mood. Dark chocolate contains a chemical compound called Phenylethylamine (PEA) that can have a positive effect on mood and cognitive health. This compound also stimulates the brain to release endorphins, so you will feel happier after eating chocolate. So apart from being a sweet food, it turns out that chocolate has a myriad of benefits for our bodies.
