A brief guide to chocolate

Chocolate is a passion, an ever-present source of temptation –  and the cause of perennial guilt. The British eat an average of 9.3 kilos of the stuff, each, every year –  that's the equivalent of almost two 100-gram bars of chocolate a week.

 Is that cause for alarm? Perhaps –  but only if this intake of a high-energy, high-fat food is out of proportion to other key factors of your health, notably diet and exercise. As with all the best things in life, moderation is the key. And there are plenty of indications to suggest chocolate –  especially if it is good-quality chocolate – can actually be beneficial to your health.
