Most people love chocolate as a dessert, snack, or a stress buster. However, this irresistible and delicious treat somehow has numerous and baseless rumors surrounding it. Most of the time, these myths are related to health, giving chocolate a bad reputation. And, believing in these misconceptions may lead you to break up from this tasty delight! So before you decide to sacrifice consuming chocolate altogether, A Cacao Affair has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about chocolate.

Myth 1: Chocolates are not gluten-free
We sometimes meet customers who ask for gluten-free chocolate. Just so you’re aware, chocolate itself is gluten-free, whether it’s dark, milk, or white chocolate. The only time you can change the composition of chocolate is when you add other ingredients to the confections.

Myth 2: White chocolate is also a type of chocolate
This is not true. White chocolate is not real chocolate but a result of a process that combines ingredients including sugar, cocoa butter, dry milk powder, and soy lecithin.

Myth 3: Chocolate is fattening
You may think that chocolate is fattening or you’ll get obese if you overeat it, but this isn’t really the case. Consuming chocolate can lead to weight gain if you eat the kind of chocolate sold in grocery stores. This is because these chocolates are made with a lot of sugar, so your brain keeps asking for more, and also, as these chocolates cheap, you tend to buy more. Good chocolate, like the one we use at A Cacao Affair, is a lot less sugary, and it is of better quality. When you eat only a few pieces, your cravings will be fulfilled. Of course, it is also more expensive, so you’ll tend to consume less.
