Finding chocolate and cocoa
I haven't looked into cocoa / chocolate products, but here's a few resources if you'd like to investigate further:
- An anonymous (but no doubt good-looking) benefactor sent me a useful spreadsheet comparing cocoa products (including carb content, fiber, organic status, and price-per-ounce).
- LabDoor tested the 11 best-selling dark chocolate brands for arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Fortunately my staple Lindt brand did pretty well.
- ConsumerLab tested chocolate / cocoa products for cadmium, lead, and flavanol content.
- As You Sow tested dozens of products to see if they exceeded California's Maximum Allowable Dose Level for cadmium and lead.
