Das Büchlein ist eine Bereicherung für Schokoladenliebhaber, die die Schokolade als ein gesundes Nahrungsmittel geniessen wollen. Der Autor, den ich kenne als Rohveganer, hat eine Schokophilie: Er schreibt leidenschaftlich über die Schokolade, anfangend mit historischen Fakten, endend mit sehr guten Rezepturen, die man in den üblichen Schokoladen-Kochbücher nicht findet: Rohgebliebene, milchfreie Nachspeisen, die als Luxuriöse Medizin durchgehen können für Herz- und gefässkranke Menschen, die sich etwas Lebensfreude realisieren wollen aus der besten Küche, die es gibt.
Da es ein paar wenige Literaturverweisungen gibt, auch nach Artikeln in internationalen Medizinzeitschriften, ist es auch empfehlenswert für Aerzte. Viel wurde in der Medizin ja nicht geschrieben über Schokolade, aber gute Studien wurden durchgeführt an Universitäten in den letzten 5 bis 10 Jahren. Der ernährungsmedizinische Wert der Schokolade wurde mehrfach wissenschaftlich nachgewiesen. Nur die Schoklade, die noch Flavenoiden enthält, hat diesen wert, der in Schokolade aus der Nahrungsmittelindustrie nicht mehr zu finden ist. Da im Büchlein Bezugsadressen erwähnt werden für rohe Schokolade, ist es auch in dieser Hinsicht eine Perle.

Der Autor hat toll recherchiert und gibt dies sehr informativ und humorvoll weiter. Die Rezepte sind sehr lecker und empfehlenswert. Übersichtlich ist auch dargestellt, für welche Rezepte man welche Küchenmaschinen benötigt. Ich bin ganz begeistert von diesem äußert informativen Schokolade-Buch.

HASH(0x9235d8c4) von 5 Sternen Raw Food Worship, But Health =/= Stimulation 28. Juni 2009
Von TheFruitOfTheForest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read this book, along with Chris Kilham's entries on chocolate (theobroma cacao), and my own ethnobotanical / biochemical studies through many avenues of interest. I always enjoy learning more about the history and culture of this interesting tree. My scientific disposition compels me look at the health sensationalism surrounding chocolate rather skeptically. Of course, these kinds of reviews are rarely popular.

Theobromine - Firstly, chocolate has stimulants (most people erroneously think is has substantial caffeine, which it does not) - chocolate has an analogous alkaloid, called "theobromine" occurring predominantly. It is a strong stimulant alkaloid with an effect on the nervous system, particularly the heart. The cardiotoxicity of this alkaloid has been established in carnivores (cats/dogs), and to a lesser extent in humans with sensitivities to it. The effect of this alkaloid may be enhanced by the substantial magnesium content of the chocolate. It may not be suitable for all people.

Tannins - Raw chocolate is rich in tannins, responsible for the bitterness of the chocolate. Tannin in high concentration will behave as an anti-nutrient, binding up and preventing the absorption of proteins and minerals in the digestive tract. It also adversely affects the kidneys in high amounts. Raw chocolate has a very high tannin content, more so than some tannin-rich fruits (such as the skins of jaboticaba), which are recommended to only be eaten in small quantity. Does this rule of potential tannin toxicity not apply to chocolate?

Surplus - Lastly, and partly from having grown cacao trees myself, is the observation that chocolate can be a surplus crop in many areas of the world. Theobroma cacao bears continuously and prolifically from trees that are surprisingly easy to grow in appropriate climates. Commercially, raw cacao beans are available at bulk wholesale relatively cheap. (Yes, even the organic ones.) Why do we see disproportionately high prices on raw chocolate products? To me, this means the public is paying high retail prices, based on this rather aggressive "health food" marketing we see - a situation which to me suggests a veil of pretense (though perhaps inadvertent) concerning the whole ordeal. Somebody is making a very high profit off this particular commodity. I don't think it is the cacao farmers / growers, either. I think a good skeptical pause is warranted.

This book is nonetheless rich with interesting information about the chocolate species. What is the point of this review? I have nothing against the authors, whose work I do enjoy. In fact I do eat a lot of raw foods myself (though not because of any ideology), being a tropical fruit grower and researcher. I think the lesson to learn here is we should respect certain foods for what they are, and not worship them for the energy and enthusiasm they impart. This is a key marketing strategy used pervasively nowadays- the idea that whole foods which make you 'feel good' are healthy and 'good for you.' Chocolate fits that bill indeed. Obtaining good health is, in actuality, a subtle endeavor, and "feeling good" is not a reliable or informative gauge for determining a food's overall virtues, or necessarily the state of one's health.

How many foods / substances out there make us feel good, only to burn us out faster? Thus, I stress caution, and encourage all people to research their health interests as much as possible. Hopefully, you see my point.

HASH(0x9235d924) von 5 Sternen Naked Chocolate for Optimal Health 23. September 2006
Von Kevin M. Gianni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
David Wolfe explores the history, nutrition, and magic of this powerful food. He even suggests how it could save the world!

As a trainer and motivator, I know first hand the power of raw chocolate and how it can affect mood and energy levels. I use it as my "secret weapon." Raw chocolate is one of the most potent sources of magnesium--a mineral that is essential for muscle function, bone growth and overall wellbeing. Since--depending on where you get your information--60-80% of all Americans are deficient in magnesium, it seems that raw chocolate could be the perfect fit to re-mineralize the population.

Lack of magnesium creates sluggishness, mood changes, and in-the-dumps feelings. Raw chocolate can bring balance to your system and bring you out of the fog.

This book also identifies other fantastic qualities of this superfood that enhance mood and stimulate your body for optimal health!

HASH(0x9235dd5c) von 5 Sternen Raw chocolate grows on trees! 7. Januar 2007
Von L. Kennedy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This was one of the first books I ordered when I decided to adopt a raw food lifestyle in October 2006. It helped me tremendiously overcome the temptations of processed cooked sweets filled with sugar and flour.

The history lesson of raw cacao was interesting reading, and the glossy book is filled with great color photos. I learned that all chocolate is derived from the cacao bean, which of course grows on the cacao tree. The caocao bean is also the staple diet of the Oompa Loompa. Raw cacao is natural and healthy food that one can enjoy in it's natural state and reap many health benefits, including weight loss, while eating delicious treats. I have lost 28 lbs so far including these recipes in my diet.

I would recomend it to those transitioning to raw food for sure. The chocolate del diablo hot drink is delicious and spicy, and I use the chocolate sauces all the time. I actually bathe in them. Just kidding. The cinnamon rolls are delicous. The raspberry berets are so cute and good. Violet's violent end pie is absolutley delicious. There is even a recipe for raw chocolate bars~ with almonds! I could go on and on.

The writing is very entertaining and informative, with a charming bit of english wit and phrases sprinkled in, and Shazzie's and David Wolfe's passion and research for thier subject is evident. An excellent book. Well worth the price.

HASH(0x9235f144) von 5 Sternen Healthy Alternatives to Highly Processed Chocolates 17. März 2009
Von Rebecca of Amazon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Nine out of ten people like chocolate. The tenth person always lies." ~ John Q. Tullius

David Wolfe and Shazzie were undoubtedly high on chocolate when they wrote this wonderful book on the history and uses of chocolate. There are many pages of full-color pictures and in particular a good picture of cacao trees. The book is divided into four main sections:

I: Cacao - legends of cocao, a brief history of chocolate, money does grow on trees

II: Scientific Properties of Chocolate - chemical composition of cacao, magnesium, antioxidants, Theobromine and Caffeine, Phenylethylamine, Anandamide and Tryptophan

III: Exotic Properties of Chocolate - Aphrodisia, nature's prozac, chocolate as medicine, chocolate yoga and overcoming chocolate addictions.

IV: Chocolate Alchemy - Organic food, ancient chocolate drinks, cacao's best friends, what to do with cacao beans, recipes.

At times the writing gets a bit technical (see the chemical composition of cocao) but overall they seemed to be having fun and most of the chapters were entertaining to read. There is interesting information - like why cocoa powder is called "dutch processed." After reading about the combination of mulberries and chocolate you might make yourself an interesting shake. You may however want to skip using milk and go for coconut milk or water. Apparently milk "cancels out the effects of antioxidants" in chocolate. I had also never heard that cocoa powder is added to weight loss products to diminish appetite. So eating chocolate may help you to lose weight.

The recipe section is very interesting if you can eat coconut and any nuts. I am currently allergic to nuts so I basically could only dream of what most of the recipes would taste like. If you want to try the recipes be prepared to make a visit to your local health food store. You will need ingredients like oat groats, figs, almonds, cherries, raw agave nectar, bee pollen, hemp seeds and coconut oil. One of the simplest recipes for chocolate fruit sorbet includes chocolate powder (crushed cocao beans or nibs), water, agave nectar and a vanilla bean. Some of the recipes require a dehydrator, juicer, coffee mill, blender and food processor. You could also grind cacao nibs in a mortar and pestle.

To put things in perspective a 2.5 pound bag of organic raw cacao nibs is around $50. You may want to start with a smaller bag $11 - Organic Raw Chocolate Cacao Nibs 8-oz.. Amazon also sells a small bag of beans - Sunfood Nutrition Chocolate Cacao Beans.

It was interesting to read that elevated levels of phenylethylamine (PEA) "the love chemical" can occur when you read a good book. I myself felt a little high on information while reading this delicious book. If you have any interest in chocolate you will love this book.

HASH(0x9235f228) von 5 Sternen Full of information; recipes complicated. 14. Februar 2007
Von Alegra Loewenstein, Health Coach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Naked Chocolate is packed full of information about chocolate. In fact, of the many chocolate books I have looked at, it is one of the most informative I have found.

The book has chapters dedicated to: legends and history of chocolate, chemical composition of cacoa, myths and beliefs about chocolates abilities, rumors and urban legends about chocolates, chocolate and health, and a huge collection of chocolate recipes. The legends, especially the historical ones, are very interesting. They tell the legends of how cacao came to be as told by the various native tribes of South America. They also chronicle the history of cacao as it is used as money in South America, traded with European explorers, brought back to Europe, and eventually made into the chocolate we know today.

While the information is there, it is sometimes unsubstantiated. For the most part it is either referenced or believable, but some of the claims are a little far out. For example, in one page the authors explain how chocolate is good for the heart because it contains magnesium. In the next paragraph, they authors write that chocolate opens the heart center on a metaphysical level. Magnesium is science, chakras are a different realm.

The recipes look really great, and the photographs are beautiful. However, most of the recipes require kitchen gadgets that some people do not have (like myself). You must have: a food dehydrator, a juicer, a food processor, a blender, a spice/coffee mill, and a hand blender. I have a blender. Of the pages and pages of recipes, I think I found two that I could make with my limited gadgetry. So, unless you are equipped with the gadgets of a raw-foodists kitchen, do not expect to be able to make all these recipes.

Also, there are occasional places in the text when the authors jump around randomly, inserting quotes with no transition, including long quotes from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" without apparent reason, etc.

And finally, the authors also talk about themselves a little too much. They tell all about their experiences with chocolate as though it is a personal journey, and I guess for them it is, but for me, I'm just trying to read about chocolate.

Despite all this, it is still overall informative and worthwhile.
