In our last blog post we mentioned a few health benefits of dark chocolate, but now we’d like to talk about our favorite – dark chocolate is a low glycemic index food.
What does this mean? It means reliable and healthy energy. The glycemic index measures the effect of carbohydrates on your blood sugar. Low glycemic index foods metabolize more steadily into your bloodstream, preventing spikes and giving you higher, more consistent energy levels. A low glycemic diet can increase athletic performance, improve cardiovascular health, and result in healthier body weight.
Less is more. Our bars pack a lot of energy into a pocket-sized package. That’s why they are the perfect go to snack for anytime of the day. Before you hit the gym, during your commute, while you’re working – there is never a bad time for chocolate. For an extra boost we also add other low glycemic index ingredients to many of our dark chocolate bars such as cranberries, peanuts, and pumpkin seeds.
So the next time you need some healthy, steady energy grab a K’ul Chocolate bar. These good carbs can give you the endurance to go that extra mile.
