Organic dark chocolate is a delicious form of dark chocolate that has been made using only the finest organic ingredients. Not only does it boast a rich, complex flavour, it also offers a number of potential health benefits (when eaten in moderation!).

Like all other organic foods, it must be certified as free of artificial additives and produced without the use of synthetic chemicals such as fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. Demand for organic products has increased dramatically since the 1990s, and today organic chocolate is hugely popular amongst confectionary consumers looking for the ultimate in quality.

The first organic dark chocolate was produced by Green and Blacks in 1991 using the finest organic Trinitario cocoa beans and featuring 70% cocoa solids. Its unique bittersweet flavour proved irresistible to chocoholics everywhere, and it became a huge success.

Containing many more antioxidants than milk chocolate, dark chocolate is often considered to be the healthier choice of chocolate. The organic version offers the additional benefits derived from a natural, careful and holistic production process - hence the ever-increasing following.

Organic dark chocolate is now produced by an array of confectionary companies and is used to make all manner of gifts, snacks, cakes and biscuits.

Other indulgent products on the market include after dinner mints, ice creams, Easter eggs, chocolate boxes, even popcorn.

If you are getting married, then why not give your guests organic dark chocolate wedding favours? This could involve a bundle of small dark chocolate bars tied together, or perhaps a truffle packaged attractively in a box with a bow.

You can even purchase drinking chocolate made with organic dark chocolate - a definite step up from the typical cocoa powder and sugar mixture that makes up most drinking chocolates. Montezuma's chocolate company's Chocolate for Drinking: No.2 contains a hint of ground chilli for some extra kick!

Health Benefits

Organic Dark Chocolate can improve your health


Organic dark chocolate is viewed as a healthier option than normal milk chocolate, due to the many antioxidants it contains. Antioxidants can help to protect the body from the effects of free radicals, which cause ageing and also heart disease.

It is also believed that dark chocolate can reduce blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels. Other theories suggest that it can help the circulatory system, stimulate the brain, boost the immune system and protect against the risk of cancer.

It could even be claimed that organic dark chocolate is healthier than normal dark chocolate, based on claims that organic food contains more nutritional benefit than normal produce.

The important thing to remember is these theories are based on consumption in moderation - so a small bar of it each day!
