Currently there is a growing interest in the consumption of probiotic foods because of their beneficial effects on health. Diet / light products have also attracted the attention of consumers who wish to have a healthier diet. In general, chocolate stands out for its pleasant taste, its already proven health benefits and its ideal characteristics for the delivery of probiotics. However, the greatest criticism regarding the consumption of chocolate is its high caloric content, resulting from the presence of sugars and fat.
The developed chocolate formulation proposes to offer several health benefits, such as immune balance, cancer prevention and improvement of digestive diseases. In addition, such product has innovative characteristics since there are no diet bar chocolates with addition of probiotic microorganisms available in the Brazilian market.
