Milton Hershey would have celebrated his 163rd birthday this past Monday (Sept. 13, 2021), which has been designated as International Chocolate Day by the US National Confectioners Association. Happy belated birthday, Mr. Chocolate Man!
Back when Milton was making himself the name in all things chocolate, nobody knew that the sweet stuff might pose a challenge to those who are sensitive to histamine, but it’s true. Plus, it’s not easy to know which version of the tasty treat poses the most threat.
The histamine content of commercial chocolate can range from 5 mg/kg all the way to 100 mg/kg. Plus, chocolate contains even higher levels of other biogenic amines including tyramine and phenylethylamine, which are histamine triggers.
Luckily, Omne Diem Histamine Digest can help anyone enjoy the sweet life by helping to break down histamine and other biogenic amines in the gut, before they cause unpleasant reactions.*
The next time you’re tempted by a morsel of chocolatey goodness, make sure you’ve got your Histamine Digest on hand. Because as Forrest Gump’s mother famously advised, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
