Acticoa™

The secret behind deliciously healthy chocolate
Maintain blood vessel elasticity
Stimulate healthy blood circulation
Enable efficient transport of oxygen to the muscles and throughout the body

Through optimized souring of cocoa beans with the highest naturally occurring flavanol content and mild processing, Bensdorp Acticoa™ Powders retain about 8% or more flavanol content. In contrast, natural cocoa powders have a low cocoa flavanol content of approximately 1%, with even less for alkalized powders.

200 mg of cocoa flavanols a day helps to support cardiovascular health*

* Official EU Health Claim Condition per daily intake in dark chocolate or cocoa powder beverages

THE ONLY EU APPROVED HEALTH CLAIM FOR CHOCOLATE AND COCOA

Bensdorp Acticoa™ Powders are the only cocoa powders with EU approval to safely claim that its cocoa flavanols help to maintain healthy blood circulation and support the cardiovascular system. Outside the EU, this approval gives the foundation to validate other claims, e.g. a structure function claim in the US. For updated claims guidance, please visit www.acticoa.com
