In terms of calories and fat, the two chocolates are pretty close! But dark chocolate's nutritious advantage comes from its deep dark colour. Both milk and dark chocolate get their colour from the cocoa bean, which gets its colour from antioxidants called flavonoids. The darker the chocolate, the more flavonoids it contains. And more flavonoids mean more antioxidant protection. The milk in milk chocolate may even make it hard for your body to absorb those antioxidants in the first place. Dark chocolate also seems to be more filling, so a nibble now and then may help you and your family say no to seconds of dessert.
