Chocolate is the go-to comfort food for millions around the world but wouldn’t we all like to live in a world where that craving can also be good for you? Chocumin could be the answer as it claims to be the “World’s first Super Chocolate with refined Turmeric” The recent Kickstarter campaign goes on to quote that Chocumin is the world’s first #superchocolate and that each piece contains the same active ingredient as 60 capsules of herbal turmeric…. This could be a big problem for Eureka lol.
Chocumin is a Swiss-style, milk, dark or white chocolate with 1000mg of purely refined curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric). Each piece of Chocumin contains the same amount of curcumin as eating sixty x 500mg capsules of turmeric. (30 grams, 1.05 oz). The company behind it is one of only six Vietnamese based food companies approved by the FDA in America.
Whilst we have not had the pleasure of tasting it (Chocumin PR company please take note… our address is on the contact us page 😉 ), the company claims that it tastes amazing. Eaten alone or with a warm beverage, it’s aimed at being a healthy way to enjoy eating chocolate while obtaining 1mg of curcumin in your daily diet.
So Why Is This Important???
Multiple medical studies have shown that curcumin (refined from turmeric) has impressive multi ailment remedies including:
Being a natural anti-inflammatory
Full of antioxidants
May improve brain function
May lower the risk of heart disease
May help to prevent cancer
Can relieve PMS/PMT pain
May prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia
May relieve arthritis inflammation
May reduce cholesterol
…and the list goes on. The problem is that most studies have been based on large amounts of turmeric consumed. We know that consuming that amount of turmeric through food is difficult which is why people love our Turmeric supplements that are the equivalent of eating 10 curries a day in a single capsule! The company behind Chocumin have turmeric farms in Vietnam where they refine the curcumin and make Chocumin from it… and then mail it right to your doorstep. We believe that if people have a way of combining turmeric with a treat like chocolate we are completely behind it!
