Are those nasty little food myths you’ve been hearing holding you back from enjoying the foods you really like? Let’s see if we can sort out some of these food facts from these food fictions.
1. White chocolate is chocolate
It turns out the creamy oh-so-sweet white chocolate is in fact not actually chocolate! It only contains cocoa butter not actual cocoa, which means it doesn’t reap the same benefits as chocolate does: such as the anti-ageing antioxidants (besides tasting super delicious!)
Verdict: BUSTED! White chocolate is NOT real chocolate.

It becomes crystal clear, food affects your productivity in the workplace.

It’s the silly season again and offices all over Sydney are decking the halls and celebrating with their office colleagues.

We’ve all heard stories about office Christmas parties gone awry. Most office parties offer copious amounts of alcohol.
