What is the fact that chocolate raises blood sugar levels?

Many legends spread about chocolate, which since ancient times has been considered a real treasure, and in South America it has even been used as a means of payment for purchases.

Dr. Sergey Agapkin points out that many people do not eat chocolate on a regular basis because of the common myth that chocolate raises the level of glucose in the blood, but this is just a myth and nothing more because chocolate does not contain as much sugar as is commonly believed. Thanks to the mixing of sugar with cocoa butter, which is a slowly melting, and therefore slowly decomposed, caloric fat, the rate of glucose absorption decreases.

He says: “For this reason, chocolate has a low glycemic index. This index for dark chocolate is 20 and in milk chocolate it reaches 40-45. Its absorption speed in the intestine, compared to the speed of absorption of regular sugar or regular glucose, is 2-4 times less.”
