Meanwhile, those in natural wellness have pointed repeatedly to the dangers of added sugar (which is finally going to become a line item on food labels), with well over 100 health problems related to sugar. And recently, it became mainstream news that the sugar industry skewed studies from the 1960s about its role in heart disease, trying to put the blame on fat.
Well, all things in moderation. We believe the right fats should be consumed (and certainly not artificial fats like hydrogenated oils) in the right amounts, so it's not about indulgence. And avoiding sugar by consuming artificial sweeteners may be an even worse choice than consuming sugar. The more we get honest science about this type of thing, the more we can have educated conversations and make educated decisions as consumers.
The dangers of added sugar are exactly why we encourage people to look at alternatives to dessert. Anything from reducing portions to finding healthier options. And it's why we like the trend of healthy chocolates that do not include dairy or refined sugar; often have other superfoods added; and in some cases they choose low-glycemic sweeteners like xylitol. This means they have little to no effect on blood sugar levels while still providing a sweet experience.
This is why we carry Tru Chocolate (organic, no dairy, no sugar, gluten free, and loaded with superfood ingredients). It's not your only choice for healthy chocolate, but if it is your choice, we offer excellent pricing in bulk so you can have your sweet fix at the best possible price.
