《中英對照讀新聞》Chocolate can be good for you -EU regulator 歐盟:巧克力對你有益

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has ruled that cocoa powder and dark chocolate can help people improve blood circulation - a claim made by Barry Callebaut, the world’s largest maker of chocolate products.


The Swiss group said on Tuesday it had provided evidence to EFSA that eating 10 grammes of dark chocolate or its equivalent in cocoa that were high in flavanols helped blood flow.


For the clinical studies it conducted to back up the claim, Barry Callebaut said it used a special process to make cocoa products that maintains the flavanols, which are usually mostly destroyed during conventional chocolate-making.


If the European Commission signs off on the EFSA ruling, the company and its customers would have the right to use the health claim on packaging for products such as chocolate drinks, cereal bars and biscuits, the company said.


In an opinion posted on the EFSA website, a scientific panel concluded that a cause and effect relationship had been established between the consumption of cocoa flavanols and the maintenance of normal vasodilation, which aids blood flow.(Reuters)


equivalent:形容詞,等量的。例句:She’s doing the equivalent job in the new company but for more money.
sign off:片語,同意做某事。例句:A judge must sign off on a search of anyone’s property.(要搜索某人的房產,必須獲得法官同意。)
conventional:形容詞,傳統的,普通的。例句:I find his art rather dull and conventional.(我覺得他的藝術相當無聊,而且稀鬆平常。)

Vasodilation refers to the widening of blood vessels[1] resulting from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, particularly in the large veins, large arteries, and smaller arterioles. The process is essentially the opposite of vasoconstriction, which is the narrowing of blood vessels.

Jubilee fever is gaining pace, and establishments across the nation are lining up to show their appreciation for the Queen.

The latest to create a fitting tribute for Her Majesty is the Berkeley Hotel in London's Knightsbridge, whose iconic Pret-a-Portea has been feeding fashionistas (yes, they do eat!) for years with minute edible versions of fashion classics.

From miniature Mulberry bags to Jimmy Choo shoes, the Pret-a-Portea collection has charted the changing face of fashion through its confectionary.

And now, the tea is set to honour the lady of the moment - Queen Elizabeth - with a specially designed Royal Jubilee tea called The Royal Collection.

  • 発音記号[prɑ'ːliːn]

Praline can refer to confections made from nuts and sugar syrup, whether in whole pieces or a ground powder, or to any chocolate confection containing the ground powder or nuts. Belgian pralines are different, they consist of a hard chocolate shell with a softer, sometimes liquid, filling. French pralines are a combination of almonds and caramelized sugar. American pralines from New Orleans also contain milk or cream and are therefore softer and creamier, resembling fudge.
