Dark chocolate, also known as "bittersweet" or "semisweet" chocolate, is made from cocoa butter instead of fats such as palm and coconut oils. Dark chocolate carries a rich and intense flavour, and is an excellent source of flavonoids which contribute to its pigment. The greater amount of flavonoids contributes to darker chocolate and potentially greater health benefits. It contains a very high percentage of cocoa solids, generally more than 60% with little or no added sugar. Some of the products manufactured using dark chocolate include chocolate bars, candies and baking chocolate.
Eating dark chocolate protects the brain from age-related stress and inflammation which play an important role in the neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. Moreover, it also helps in boosting blood circulation to the brain, which can improve the ability to focus; improving memory, and controlling the anxiety levels. Owing to these factors, the market for dark chocolate is expected to reach a value of US$ around 57 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of nearly 9% during 2017-2022.
