Barry Callebaut’s new ProBenefit chocolate lets consumers have their chocolate and health benefits, too. Designed to help consumers maintain a healthy intestinal balance, ProBenefit chocolate -- enhanced with probiotic bacterial cultures -- now is available for the North American market. In addition to its probiotic health benefits, the chocolate is kosher-certified, offers a long shelf life and does not require refrigeration.

Available in milk and dark chocolate, ProBenefit helps the body to maintain a healthy balance of “good” bacteria, while promoting optimal intestinal function and good health. To ensure the survival of the probiotics throughout digestion, Barry Callebaut uses a special production system that ensures a homogenous blend of probiotics in chocolate within a restricted temperature range.
