not only does this chocolate, handcrafted in small batches, offer you all the minerals and polyphenols naturally present in cacao, not treated with alkali, it elegantly provides beneficial strains of microbes, of the lactobacilli and bifidobacterium species as well as others we have had a symbiotic relationship with, that were naturally present in fermented, cultured, dried, preserved and aged foods. we offer you these beneficial microbes in our opulent, nutrient-dense, chocolate flowers. these beneficial microbes, aka probiotics, are transient, so while they are introduced to and expelled from the different neighborhoods of your gut microbiome, they support healthy digestion, they modulate your adaptive immune system, and they aid in the synthesis of hormones and vitamins naturally manufactured by the gut. this chocolate contains no emulsifying agents, preservatives or stabilizers. it is offered to you as living food.
this chocolate is lovingly inoculated with these microbial species: lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus fermentum, lactobacillus bulgaricus, lactobacillus casei, lactobacillus paracasei, lactococcus lactis, lactobacillus plantarum, lactobacillus rhamnosus, bacillus subtilis, bifidobacterium longum, bifidobacterium bifidum, bifidobacterium brevis, bifidobacterium breve, bifidobacterium lactis, saccharomyces cerevisiae, saccharomyces boulardii, streptococcus thermophilus.
