Original Press Release:

São Paulo, April 2 -- Nestlé issued the following news release:

- With Easter approaching, the main ingredient for chocolate production gains even more prominence, not only for its flavor, but for its nutrients that can bring health benefits

There's no way to think about Easter without talking about chocolates. In the sweetest season of the year, it appears in the most diverse formats, whether in the traditional Easter Egg, in boxes of chocolates or tablets. Cocoa, the ingredient behind these treats, is not only a tasty indulgence but has nutrients that offer health benefits.

Gisele Pavin , Head of Nutrition Nestlé, presents some of these benefits:

Source of Antioxidants: Cocoa is one of the richest sources of natural antioxidants, such as flavonoids. These compounds help fight free radicals, substances that damage the body's cells, promoting premature aging and increasing the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, among others.

Cardiovascular Health : Studies suggest that regular cocoa consumption may be associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. The flavonoids present in cocoa can help improve vascular function, reduce blood pressure and lower bad cholesterol.

Improved Mood: Cocoa contains compounds that stimulate the release of substances in the brain, such as serotonin, which is associated with feelings of happiness and well-being. Consuming cocoa can help improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

May improve blood pressure: Flavonoids can improve blood flow in arteries and cause a slight decrease in blood pressure.

Also according to Gisele, the amount of chocolate used as a reference for nutritional labeling purposes is 25 grams. Therefore, for a 200-gram chocolate egg, it is advisable to divide each side into four portions and consume 1 piece per day.

“ Focusing on the experience of unwrapping a chocolate, realizing its weight, appreciating its aroma and savoring its different textures allows the consumer to fully enjoy the sensations that the food offers, prolonging the pleasure of tasting without compromising well-being ,” explains Gisele.

For Easter this year, in addition to the traditional KITKAT, Alpino and Talento line eggs, Nestlé and Garoto presented flavors such as: Caribe Easter Egg, Garoto Negresco Easter Egg, Talento Half Bitter Easter Egg and Passatempo Easter Egg. The new products are part of the portfolio of twenty-one items that make up Easter for both brands and include chocolate eggs, with a suggested price starting at R$39.99 , and pre-Easter products, with a suggested price starting at R$ $5.99 .
