Dutch Chocolate (processed with alkali) does not have the nutrition that natural chocolate has! Plus, I have determined that Dutch chocolate (processed with alkali) is something I should NOT eat. I spent a long time with cramps in the bathroom in Walmart. Silk Dark Chocolate "milk" was the culprit!
I told my allergist about the lack of full nutrition in Dutch Chocolate (processed with alkali), and he said he was going to have to look into that as he had never heard that. Well, it is all over the internet, so it should not be hard to find.
Plus, I informed him Dutch Chocolate (processed with alkali) upset my stomach sometimes. Now, I am positive. Before, I thought it was just chocolate and sugar combined with milk that affected me.
The problem is I like chocolate, even Dutch processed. A Hershey bar or Kisses never have bothered me and both are processed with alkali. So, I have to delve further into this matter.
I am not so sure about the recipe information HERE. It is Wikipedia!
Here is more information from The Cleveland Clinic. Maybe it is more believable to most people.
I still need to investigate the effects of the Dutched Chocolate on my system. The last link points out that darker chocolate is not necessarily better, depending on how it was processed. Processing with alkali is not the nutritious way to process.
Are you allergic to chocolate? If so, have you ever noticed a difference in the type of chocolate that affects you? Do things with chocolate ever send you to the bathroom?
