About chocolate milk
Chocolate milk is sweetened milk with a chocolate flavor. The milk could come from cows, goats, rice, soy, and other sources. Cocoa powder, melted chocolate, and chocolate syrup could be the source of the chocolate flavor. Sweeteners present in chocolate milk include sugar or other sugar substitutes.
Milk brings a lot of nutritional value to chocolate milk products. It is a whole protein, which means it contains all the essential amino acids your body requires. Milk is also rich in calcium, vitamin D, phosphorus, riboflavin, potassium, and carbs. It also contains small amounts of magnesium, zinc, iodine, selenium, and vitamins A, B1, B6, and B12.
Chocolate milk is said to have originated in Jamaica. In the early 1700s, Irish physician Sir Hans Sloane helped to popularize chocolate milk. He found the cocoa to be better when he added it to milk, and he grew fond of the drink. Sloane brought the formula back home, and its popularity spread. However, chocolate milk could have also gotten to Europe through Christopher Columbus' exploration of the Americas. People first used it as a medicine, and its popularity spread later as a beverage.
