Our expert says:
Chocolate, esp dark chocolate with a high cacao content contains polyphenols which have been shown to act as antioxidants and thus help prevent heart disease. However, chocolate even on its own has high fat and energy contents and should be eaten in small quantities. Doughnuts are loaded with refined carbohydrates and fat (1610 kJ, 17.5 g fat and 55.1 g of carbs per 100g). Adding a thin layer of chocolate to doughnuts will not improve their nutritive properties or their energy content!
