The Truth About Real Chocolate

NuGo is the only company to make REAL Dark Chocolate coated protein bars for many lifestyles. REAL Dark Chocolate is what you’ll find coating NuGo Dark, NuGO FREE, and NuGO Slim protein bars. Unlike other protein bar manufacturers, NuGo never uses waxy vegetable fats (palm oil) in place of REAL, antioxidant-rich dark chocolate.

Taste and Health Benefits of Real Chocolate

NuGo's dark chocolate comes only from cocoa beans (cocoa butter and non-fat cocoa solids) and is a superfood. For people with cholesterol levels within a normal range, REAL Dark Chocolate can help maintain good cholesterol (HDL). The vegetable fat in fake chocolate is an unhealthy saturated fat that can raise bad cholesterol (LDL) above normal ranges.

The fake chocolate coated snacks substitute vegetable fat, usually palm oil, for cocoa butter, which raises the melting temperature above body temperature, thus the chocolate doesn't melt in your mouth creating a waxy texture and an overly sweet taste. REAL dark chocolate homogenously melts at 89-93 degrees, below body temperature, exploding the dark chocolate flavor as it melts. That's why NuGo Dark chocolate coated protein snacks are so tasty compared to the competition.

Cocoa butter, the natural source of fat in REAL Dark Chocolate, is responsible for its smooth, creamy texture. Cocoa butter does not counteract the cholesterol lowering benefits of the cocoa bean - it is a neutral fat. The natural fat in chocolate, cocoa butter, is comprised of equal amounts of oleic acid (a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat also found in olive oil), stearic and palmitic acids. Research has shown* that stearic acid does not raise LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) as do most saturated fats. Stearic acid is converted in the liver to oleic acid, a heart healthy, monounsaturated fat . Few other fats are this heart-healthy.
