I'm looking to maximize the health benefits of dark chocolate with an organic chocolate bar that is 90% or higher and NOT alkalized (e.g. does not use the dutch process).

Any suggestions appreciated.

I wonder if the fermenting and roasting during the cocoa bean processing reduces the phytates to a low enough level to not be a concern.

I'm not sure about 90% but Green and Black's 85% doesn't list alkali. And it's damn good!

Sure, you lose some of the antioxidants with alkalized chocolate, but, you also get rid of a lot of phytates, I'm not so sure that raw is all that wonderful.
