Low Fat Chocolate?? Scientists May Have Just Found The Holy Grail With New Electrical Trick!

This is the most delicious news you’ll hear all day!

Lowering the fat content in chocolate has been a real challenge for food scientists, as it takes a certain fat percentage for the liquid to be handled during production.

But according to a study at Philadelphia’s Temple University, a simple electrical trick might remove some of that necessity.

Apparently when you run the liquid chocolate through an electrical field, the chunks tend to bond into chains, leading to a smoother liquid — meaning it may not need so much fat.

According to researchers, it should now be easy to remove 10%, possibly even 20% of the fat from processed chocolate — without losing any taste!

The study was partially funded by Mars — makers of Snickers, Milky Way, M&Ms, Twix, & more — so we may see reduced fat content in a LOT of popular candy in the near future.

For now, the lower fat chocolate still needs to pass more tests — for texture, nutrition information, and longevity in storage.

But with demand so high, we’re guessing the process will go smoothly…
