High Fibre reduces risk of many diseases

Recommended Posts

Thanks mccoy for drawing attention to the fiber content of cocoa powder which, in addition to the polyphenol content,  likely contributes substantially to it's health-promoting effects.



The cocoa bean has a seed coat or bran with a high content in DF [dietary fiber], particularly insoluble fibre [8]. The composition of cocoa-derived products depends on the botanical variety as well as on genetic, agronomical and food processing. In contrast to chocolate production, the bran remains present in cocoa powder, thus being a good source of DF [9].   https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3369210/
