Should Dark Chocolate Be a Part of Your Diet?
Some research has shown that there are ingredients in dark chocolate that benefit your teeth, but there are some trade-offs to consider. Dark chocolate has less sugar than milk chocolate, but if you eat a full bar of dark chocolate, you are probably eating around 20 grams of sugar in one sitting. In general, added sugar in your diet should not exceed between 25-36 grams, and eating higher amounts of sugar can also contribute to tooth decay in the long-run. While plain dark chocolate is probably a better dessert option than most, it is still best to be enjoyed in moderation to reduce the amount of added sugar in your diet.
