Chocolate or White Chocolate?

Do You Know the Differences Between the Chocolate Types?
It’s very rare to find someone in the world who doesn’t like chocolate at all, even if it’s just the habit of tasting this sweet as an ingredient in some combination or recipe. It is correct to say that chocolate is simply an irresistible food, and as if that were not enough, there are several ways to consume it. However, there are three types of traditional chocolate: white, milk and dark. Do you know the main features and differences between each of them?

Milk chocolate is a preparation that takes cocoa mass – in proportions smaller than 50% of the recipe’s composition –, butter, milk, powdered or natural, and sugar. This mixture guarantees this type of chocolate a lighter brown color, creamy texture and a sweeter flavor, which pleases most palates.

White chocolate is one of the types of chocolate that, despite not having the characteristic coloring of cocoa, can also be classified in this food group because it contains cocoa butter, instead of the fruit mass, in its recipe. It is also prepared with milk and sugar, characteristics that increase its concentration of fat and caloric value. Precisely because they use a high volume of fruit in their recipes, dark chocolates are considered more nutritious than other types because they have a higher content of phytochemicals and other nutrients in their composition, as well as a lower fat and sugar content.

Chocolate, White Chocolate or Both?
Although chocolate is delicious, consuming it too much can cause diarrhea, reflux, nausea, stomach pain, headache and even trigger an allergic reaction. This is because chocolate is rich in fats and sugars, which can overload the body when consumed in excess. In addition, excessive consumption of chocolate accelerates weight gain, overloads the pancreas, altering the functioning of insulin – which is a hormone with an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates in the blood – in the body. The consequences of this are many, and the most dangerous of them is diabetes, a disease that occurs when there is an increase in blood glucose. Exactly why we should look for the healthiest way to taste this delicacy.
