Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! Some of you may look forward to February 14 as a day to celebrate love, while others treat it like any ordinary day. Well, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers. Valentine’s Day can be celebrated with good friends, family members, or just anyone who is lucky enough to be loved by you. Are you planning to surprise them this Valentine’s Day? Why not buy a healthy, sweet present? Chocolates is the first thing that popped up in mind! But this time it’s healthier, Organic Chocolate that we’re eyeing for!
Why choose Organic Chocolate over nonorganic or conventional chocolate?
Organic Chocolate is created using cocoa beans which have not been treated with synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Also, its other ingredients included like sugar, milk, nuts, fruits, spices, etc. must be organic as well.
One of the ingredients of conventional chocolate is corn syrup. Corn syrup is the sweetener that is most often used today in conventional foods products. Yet, Corn Syrup is not food at all. It is a synthetic substance derived from genetically modified (GMO) corn that has no nutritional value. Having too much exposure to corn syrup can cause weight gain, cavities and poor nutrition.
Organically made chocolate, on the other hand is often combined with dates, raisins, and other natural sweeteners such as brown rice syrup, malts syrup, and evaporated cane juice. Unlike corn syrup, these natural sweeteners have nutritional benefits that contribute to an overall healthy diet. In short, it’s totally healthy.
Organic Chocolates are not hard to find. In fact, it has various types and brands available on different stores worldwide.

I believe if you truly love someone, everyday should feel like Valentine’s Day and one day out of the year shouldn’t be a reflection of the love you have for your partner. And don’t forget to be organic!
