Cocoa bean (Theobroma cacao L.) is the main raw material used in chocolate production. Fermentation is essential for removing the pulp surrounding the beans and for developing precursors of chocolate flavors. The fermentation of cocoa is a microbiologically complex process involving the activities of yeasts, lactic acid bacteria and acetic acid bacteria. During the fermentation process, a consortium of naturally occurring yeasts, as well as lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and acetic acid bacteria (AAB), is responsible for alcohol and acid production. Further, microbial metabolites diffuse into the beans leading to complex biochemical reactions inside these grains (Schwan, Pereira, & Fleet, 2014).Due to the fermentation one of the major microbes in raw chocolate is Lactobacillus Ghanensis, along with the polyphenols this makes raw chocolate an amazing probiotic and prebiotic.
“The good (gut) microbes, such as Bifidobacterium and lactic acid bacteria, feast on chocolate. When you eat dark chocolate, they grow and ferment it, producing compounds that are anti-inflammatory”
