Copper: 1 Bar Dark Chocolate (113g) A Day


Do you know that eating 1 bar of dark chocolate (113g) a day fully covers your daily copper need (based on adult's need)? 

But it may not be wise make it a daily choice because of the high calories: 100g = 600 kcal :-(

Recommended daily intake: 1.7mg
  • 0.2mg (0-6 months old)
  • 0.22mg (7-12 months old)
  • 0.7mg (1-3 years old)
  • 1mg (4-8 years old)
  • 1.1-1.3mg (9-13 years old)
  • 1.1-1.5mg (14-18 years old)
  • 1.2mg for women (19 years old & above)
  • 1.7mg for men (19 years old & above)
  • 1.3mg for pregnant women 
  • 1.5mg for breast-feeding women 

Helps form heart, skeletal, nervous systems, arteries and blood vessels.
