Three Cheers for Chocolate
Dark vs. Milk vs. White Chocolate
The gold medal winner is clearly dark chocolate. It contains the most cocoa bean in the form of chocolate liquor and cocoa butter, so it has less sugar and more antioxidants. Milk chocolate is the runner-up with a similar blend to dark chocolate, except with less chocolate liquor and the addition of milk.
Consider white chocolate a second-string player, and keep it on the bench. "White chocolate is only the cocoa butter mixed with sugar," says Blatner. "No potent chocolate antioxidants hiding in there!"
