Cocoa Solids (what am I drinking/eating?)



Hi,

I've bought a chocolate cocoa powder
called Cocoa Fantastico! (Chocolate Creme Flavor)

These are the ingredients:
100% unsweetened Cocoa powder, Cocoa solids

2 Tbsp serving size (1 0z)

calories 100 calories from fat 10
total fat 1g
sat fat 0
cholesterol 0
sodium 22

total carbhydrate 19g
dietary fiber 3g
sugars 0g
protien 3g

vitamin A daily% 0
vitamin C daily% 0
calcium daily% 15
Iron daily% 440

My question is, what am I ingesting?
The iron content concerns me
It would be nice to know, what % are Cocoa solids.

thanks, waterboy

"Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a
disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice."
-Baruch Spinoza

"There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly
what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear
and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There
is another theory which states that this has already happened."
-Douglas Adams
