Haute Toffee Toffee and Dark Chocolate Are Her Health Foods>

As the self-proclaimed experts on all things toffee, Haute Toffee claims: “We Know How Toffee is Done.” Haute Toffee makes some of the finest toffee recipes on the planet. And they’re not shy about preaching their philosophy. They believe:

Toffee should be made with whole almonds
Toffee should be rich and buttery
Toffee should be eaten with every meal
Toffee should be decadent

A lot of women love their toffee and chocolate. A lot! Oh…but the guilt that goes along with all of that luscious sweetness (and calories) can cause us to curb our indulgence. But wait. What if we could find some health benefits to consuming these tasty treats? Would that make you feel better? It’s worth a try.

Sure there are lots of calories and even some fat in butter toffee. Fat content weighs in at 9 grams per serving, with each serving also containing 15 mg of cholesterol, 45 mg of sodium, 11 g of carbohydrates, for a total of about 120 calories.

But wait. Haute Toffee contains those whole almonds. Those nuts are a good source of fiber and protein. Plus, research shows that eating a little more than two ounces of nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, macadamias, etc.) can increase the ratio of HDL (the good cholesterol) to LDL (bad cholesterol) by more than 8%. Better yet, a Japanese study showed that the polyphenols in chocolate also activate genes that increase our HDL production. Plus, the flavonoids in dark chocolate are a naturally occurring antioxidant.

So there you have it. There are a few nuggets of health wrapped up in your toffee, nuts and dark chocolate. As with any candies, butter toffee and chocolate should be eaten in moderation. For more information, contact Haute Toffee at sales@hautetoffee.com
