Milk chocolate can have as little as 20% cocoa solids and some bars have less than that but only refer to themselves as chocolaty instead of chocolate. Currently the candy industry is trying to lower the standard to allow less cocoa solids in chocolate. Even though 20% cocoa milk chocolate has 1/3 as much as 60% dark chocolate it doesn't seem to be even 1/3 as good a source of antioxidants. The processing and addition of dairy appears to destroy most of the beneficial aspects of chocolate.
Different brands of dark chocolate are processed differently so even with the same percentage of cocoa solids the antioxidant content can vary. Unfortunately chocolate makers to not normally list the antioxidant power of their chocolate.
Dark chocolate is an excellent antioxidant. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals that cause disease. Eating small amounts of dark chocolate help to fight everything from aging to cancer to high blood pressure to asthma. However, this is not true about all chocolate, just dark chocolate. The higher the percentage of cocoa the better. Look for chocolate that is at least 70 percent dark chocolate.
