Three Cheers for Chocolate

Does a High Cacao Percentage Mean It's Healthier?

In a nutshell, yes. "Higher percent means more antioxidant-rich cocoa bean and less sugar, so it is healthier," says Blatner.

The cacao percentage refers to the total cocoa bean content in the chocolate bar -- chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, and cocoa powder. The remaining ingredients consist mainly of sugar and possibly vanilla and lecithin, depending on the recipe. One hundred percent dark chocolate is the healthiest because it has no added sugar, but it's generally too bitter to eat. It's best when used in baked goods.
