Our chocolate is NOT FATTENING.
Cocoa is not fattening, on the contrary. According to clinical studies, a diet rich in cocoa can promote a feeling of satiety, which can help us moderate the amount of food eaten. In addition, it helps regulate blood glucose and cholesterol levels.
The more percentage of cocoa, the better for health. We have opted for a 70% quantity of cacao in every bar so that the taste is appreciated by most people and is not too bitter.
The sugar contained in regular chocolate can convert into fat. When sugar is metabolized in our body and transformed into glucose, which is absorbed in the intestine and from there passes to the liver. There it is transformed into glycogen and stored as an energy reserve up to a maximum amount of 100 grams in the liver and 200 grams in the muscles. If the amount of sugar ingested is such that the glycogen storage limits are exceeded, the excess glucose in the blood is transformed into fat in adipose tissue, constituting a form of long-term energy reserve: “If it is not used now, It will be used later”.
In newyou. we do not use sugar only 100% agave syrup with a composition of 70% fructose and 25% glucose compared to refined sugar, which is 50% -50% (100% sucrose). In addition, agave has a glycemic index 4 times lower than sugar, so its absorption is slower, which benefits your metabolic process and allows you to feel satiated for longer. In addition, it has a greater sweetening power, so you can consume a lower amount than common sugar.
100 grams of sugar has 380 calories. 100 grams of agave syrup 310 calories. Our recipe has 28 grams of syrup for every 100 grams of chocolate. And this is 87 calories. Each serving has 17.4 calories per part of the agave syrup.
(310/100 = 3.1 * 28 = 86.8 / 5 (20gr of tablet) = 17.36 calories per serving).
