Chocowise® products are manufactured using a proprietary Preserve Technology, an adapted manufacturing process that allows for a high percentage of active ingredients, even those sensitive to heat, while preserving the great taste of real chocolate.

Superior probiotic stability

Due to its very low moisture content, chocolate is an excellent media for probiotic bacteria. Stability tests on strain B. lactis HN019™ in chocolate show almost equal counts of probiotic bacteria after 24 months at room temperature when compared to baseline.

Better survival of probiotics in the digestive system

Chocolate medium contributes to a better survival of probiotic bacteria in the aggressive conditions of stomach and intestine when compared to other media.

Synergistic action of probiotics and fibres from chocolate

  • probiotic bacteria feed on fibres from cocoa, which has a beneficial effect on their viability
  • probiotic bacteria metabolize polyphenols from chocolate to smaller molecules, which facilitates their absorption in the intestine and potentiate their effect
