Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Health Theme Week.

Another trend in the health foods (and chocolate) sections in local stores has to do with a growing awareness about probiotics, fermented foods, and the importance of "good" gut flora/bacteria in our digestive system. (Some research studies have shown that this good bacteria can also help displace less desirable bacteria and yeasts.)

This Attune Probiotic Milk Chocolate Crisp bar was from Attune Foods, Inc. (San Francisco, CA). The convenient, pocket-sized bar provided a dose of milk chocolate and healthy Howaru probiotics (from Danisko). Crispy pieces of rice were embedded in smooth milk chocolate, adding a light, crunchy texture. Another plus: added calcium provided 25 percent of the adult recommended daily allowance.

This one bar included "6.1 billion probiotic CPUs of three of the most clinically tested strains: bifidobacterium lactis HN019, lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM and lactobacilus casei LC-11 along with inulin, a prebiotic."
