Episode 9 – Why chocolate could be a winner for gut health (with 25% off)
In today’s podcast, Kate talks about how she stumbled on a new chocolate that could actually help gut health.
She talks to Andrew Marten of Ohso chocolate about how his own IBS was the trigger to changing direction and launching chocolate bars.
Kate tried out the chocolate at the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham, and decided to ask Andrew why how he switched from the beauty industry to something even sweeter.
Find out why research from Bruges shows chocolate can deliver more good bacteria to your gut than yogurt or kefir, the pleasures of eating miniature bars, and why peppermint is a very domineering flavour.

NB: This is not a sponsored podcast – I just liked the chocolate (and did get a free taste!)
I talk about why chocolate – and in fact all foods – can be worked into a healthy diet in The Dirty Diet book – ditch the guilt, love your food.
