Yes, type 2 diabetics can eat 85 percent dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is a low-glycemic food, which means it won't cause a sudden spike in blood sugar levels. It's also a good source of fiber and antioxidants. The key is to eat dark chocolate in moderation and choose dark chocolate that has less added sugar. A serving size is 1 ounce, which may be about one or two squares depending on the size of the dark chocolate bar. Enjoy dark chocolate as part of a healthy diet that includes a variety of other low-glycemic foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats.

According to a study by ARYA Atherosclerosis, which analyzed individuals with type 2 diabetes, showed that after eight weeks patients who consumed 25 grams of dark chocolate had lower blood pressure in comparison with patients who consumed white chocolate. Also, dark chocolate consumers had reduced fasting blood sugar. In my opinion, dark chocolate needs to be consumed in moderation because of the lack of scientific evidence.
