Cocoa Bars That are NOT Alkalized (Does Not Use Dutch Process)

Answered on August 19, 2014

I'm looking to maximize the health benefits of dark chocolate with an organic chocolate bar that is 90% or higher and NOT alkalized (e.g. does not use the dutch process).

Any suggestions appreciated.

I wonder if the fermenting and roasting during the cocoa bean processing reduces the phytates to a low enough level to not be a concern.

I'm not sure about 90% but Green and Black's 85% doesn't list alkali. And it's damn good!

Sure, you lose some of the antioxidants with alkalized chocolate, but, you also get rid of a lot of phytates, I'm not so sure that raw is all that wonderful.
