The world’s largest chocolate maker has unveiled a new chocolate that slows ageing process and keeps wrinkles at bay.

Chocolate makers Barry Callebaut have come up with Acticoa, which is packed with natural antioxidants and can protect skin from damage by harmful free radicals. The health-boosting chocolate bars are invented by chocolatiers at Barry Callebaut.

The company developed the time-defying snacks by finding a way to preserve antioxidants called flavonols, which are found in cocoa beans but are usually destroyed in the chocolate-making process.

Flavonols “mop up” free radicals caused by smoking, pollution, caffeine and lack of sleep, which can accelerate the ageing process.

“Chocolate and health do not seem to fit together but it is a very interesting proposition: if I can eat something I like and it is good for me, that is great. Chocolate is probably at the bottom of the list when you think about making food healthier,” the telegraph.co.uk quoted Harry Vriens, of Barry Callebaut, as saying.
