What do you guys think about this:

semi-sweet chocolate [sugar, chocolate, liquor processed w/alkali, cocao butter, butter oil, soy lecitin, vanilla], almonds, cranberries, sugar, monounsaturated sunflower oil, sea salt, confectioner's glaze. contains milk, soy and nuts.


I am type O with bad bad bad knees so I guess chocolate is to be treated as an avoid right? Anyway, what about for my mom's and stuff, what do you make of it guys?

Tak (Icelandic for thanks!), I heard Iceland is soo super nice. Volcanoes flowing, steam and hotsprings everywhere and just the friendliest place.

liquor processed,
monounsaturated sunflower oil,
confectioner's glaze,
contains milk........
those don t sound alright to me.

mentions nuts, but which nuts?

best is to make your own chocolate with no avoids.......

Hi Charles,

You may want to try one of our blogger's, Kate's BTD Friendly Chocolate. áShe has mentioned it in thread(s) related to chocolate.

I have not made it, so I can't attest to the taste or results:

There are some chocolates out there that are OK for O's..  Try Endangered Species brand which can be found at Whole Foods for example.

The good news is, Jane is right, there are several really good brands of compliant chocolate out there for O secretors, such as Endangered Species and Dagoba. áReading the ingredients list and comparing it to Typebase4 for avoids is the key to staying on the straight and narrow. áBut I can tell ya right now that "confectioner's glaze" is CORN sugar, so I'd stay far away from that brand just based on that alone. áThe milk is also an avoid, and there are some smaller issues, so I'd go for one of the purer, compliant brands mentioned. áEnjoy!

The lavender version is just sooooooo gooood  
I can┤t get all the varieties here and they are VERY expensive
- but I must say that I find: Dagoba probably the best chocolate in the world......( no it is not the best lager in the world ( Carlsberg )

Dagoba is "da bomb", for sure!  But don't they use cane juice?  I thought that was an avoid for everybody.  (too lazy to check, this morning)

That Endangered Species Panther Bar has one of the highest (if not the highest) amount of chocolate I've seen (something like 83, or 87% ? ).  Great source of antioxidants!  Plus their sugar content is very low, for those of you who can eat sugar.  

I tend to work from the unsweetened cocoa powders, myself, non-sugar eater that I am.

Why would cane juice be bad?  Isn't that what plain old fashioned sugar is made from (before they discovered corn syrup etc.)?

here, a quote by Dr D:
Quoted Text
Raw cane sugar possesses a B-antigen
degrading enzyme
Much like certain preparations of soy. In
essence, the enzyme digests your blood type.
Not so good for the mucus of your GI tract. It
appears to be in the mineral (or ash) portion
of the food, which is much lower in the other
refined commercial forms. Prolonged boiling
(as in molasses making) inactivates it. As an avoid it is only a Tier II value
(optional in otherwise healthy individuals),
so don't get too bent out of shape. B non
secretors may want to take this more seriously
though, especially if obese; and B secretors
if prone to gut permeability issues.


so no worries there unless you re a B non, like Victoria! )

I absolutely love the Endangered Species Black Panther Bar!  The Panther Bar has an exquisite taste, and amazing smoothness for such rich, deep chocolate, and satisfies me to the depth of my soul--and all for just a couple of bucks!

I used to be a Huge Candy Bar eater before I nearly entered my final illness a month ago, and before I started BTD shortly thereafter.  While I would theoretically do better with no Candy Bar, in reality, I can absolutely stick with the BTD because the Black Panther Bar waits for me at the end of each week.  

Life is Good!

Bad news on the chocolate front.

According to a friendly clerk at our big natural food store, Dagoba has just been bought by Hersheys.  He swears it's the truth!

Hershey also bought Scharffen Berger earlier this year...prior to that, also very good chocolate (imho).


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Is Hersheys a company to be trusted?  I don't think so!  So all Dagoba and Scharffen Berger eaters, just keep reading those labels very closely.  Ingredients have a way of changing when owners change hands.

I'm still rootin' for Endangered species Panther Bar.

I, too, love the endangered species brand. Some of their bars have "water-filtered beet sugar" - does anyone know anything about that? Is it better or worse in terms of sugar for a non-secretor? My very favorite is the dark mint chocolate with the gorillas on front.

I believe that brand is a good choice, whenever you need a 'fix'. )
