How to introduce chocolate into all kinds of pastry

At christmas and on new year's eve, chocolate is obligatory. But in what form Chocolate puff pastry, perhaps Chocoholics know that chocolate contains cocoa butter, and they would like nothing better than to be able to substitute it for ordinary butter in puff pastry. But they also know that the hardness of chocolate stands in their way. A few simple observations about state transitions will make it possible to solve this problem and to adapt the majority of classic recipes for pastry to new uses. How can we incorporate chocolate in the dough Dark chocolate cannot be used in place of butter, despite its cocoa butter content, because it is too hard. Eighty percent of cocoa butter the only fatty matter permitted by law in France to be used in making chocolate, although other kinds have been proposed is composed of three triglycerides, or molecules made up of glycerol (commonly called glycerine). These molecules are associated with three fatty acids palmitic acid, stearic acid, and oleic...

Make All Desserts with Chocolate

From puff pastry it is but a short step to make both shortcrust pastry (including the basic pie dough used to line meat or fish pies) and sugar crust with chocolate one has only to replace butter with chocolate whose lipid composition has been changed. Similarly, one could make chocolate savarin dough, chocolate brioche dough, chocolate cream puff dough, almond or chocolate cookie dough, and so on. One might even be tempted to use chocolate in an almond custard Add almond powder and an alcohol to melted chocolate, and Everything Chocolate 323 Where the fatty matter used is cream rather than butter, it is the cream that must be replaced by a chocolate preparation. In this case it is not enough to manipulate the melting point of the chocolate, for cream is above all an emulsion, a dispersion of fatty droplets in water (from the milk). The droplets remain separated from one another for a long time, though not indefinitely, because they are surrounded by tensioactive molecules, one part...

The Whitening of Chocolate

To keep chocolate from turning white, keep it chilled. why does chocolate become covered with an ugly white film after a few days Michel Ollivon and G rard Keller of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (crns), in collaboration with Christophe Loisel and Guy Lecq of the Danone Group, have recently explained how certain constituents of this partially liquid mixture migrate and crystallize on its surface, causing it to change color. Chocolate is a dispersion of sugar crystals and cocoa powder in cocoa butter. Once crystallized, the cocoa butter serves as a binding agent for the solid particles, just as cement binds the sand and gravel in concrete. Nonetheless, chocolate does not easily cohere The sugar crystals are hydrophilic, whereas the cocoa butter is hydrophobic. Master chocolate makers add lecithin molecules as part of a process known as conching in order to promote the coating of the sugar by the cocoa butter. Since the 1960s it had been known that the whitening of...

Chocolate XRayed

The crns and Danone researchers investigated the crystallization process by measuring variations in viscosity during tempering. X-rays showed that well-tempered chocolate is crystalized in form 5, and further observation by means of polarizing microscopy disclosed that the surface of the chocolate immediately after fabrication is free of crystals only a few holes, no doubt created by the bursting of air bubbles on the surface, and a few minute cracks are visible. By contrast, when the chocolate is subjected to substantial variations in temperature, the whitening appears after a few days. Both the surface and the interior crystalize in form 6. How are we to interpret these observations It was long thought that the whitening resulted from a migration of a part of the cocoa butter toward the surface, where it recrystallized, probably in form 6. Today we know that the composition of fatty matter in the body of the chocolate differs from that of the whitened surface. Herv Adenier and Henri...

Chocolate Emulsion

Our chances of obtaining such a foam will increase if we begin by creating a physicochemical system similar to cream but with a chocolate base. Physical chemists know that cream is an emulsion, a dispersion of fatty droplets in water (in this case the water contained in milk, which also dissolves sugars, The emulsion we need to make Chantilly chocolate can be formed in an analogous manner by mixing together water, tensioactive molecules, and cocoa butter. One simply pours a little water into a pan (which will be improved from the gastronomic point of view if it is flavored with orange juice, for example, or cassis pur e) and adds some tensioactive molecules, either proteins from the yolk or white of an egg or gelatin (often used to thicken butter and cream sauces, which are also emulsions). One could rely simply on the lecithin already present in chocolate, but let's use gelatin instead and dissolve it in the water by heating. Then whisk in the chocolate. The result is a homogeneous...

Clinical evaluation

The cause of the atrial fibrillation should be identified. Precipitating causes, such as hyperthyroidism, electrolyte abnormalities, and drug toxicity, should be excluded. Stimulant abuse, excess tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, over-the-counter cold remedies, and street drugs should be sought. AF may be associated with a recent acute illness, such as pneumonia.

Dimorphic Beaked Whale

Physical description Length, 16-18 feet. Long, wide beak. Relatively flat head with a small but distinct melon. Low, triangular dorsal fin. Males have a broad, white swath across the body the head and beak are reddish-brown or tan, while the back and flanks behind the swath are black-brown or chocolate-brown. Females and young are gray-brown, fading to pale gray on the underside.

Acute psychological problems associated with MDMA use

Increased anxiety(2,26) and panic(2,28> have been described, with the three cases of the latter study complicated by prolonged agorophobia which responded to serotonergic antidepressant drugs. Major depressive disorder(29) and prolonged depersonalization with panic and suicide following ingestion (30) have also been described. Numerous cases of MDMA-related psychoses have also been reported(3 ,32,) as well as flashbacks(3 34) and even craving for chocolate 35 It has been suggested( 2,22) that such idiosyncratic disturbances are more likely to occur in those already predisposed to psychiatric disorders. It is possible that people predisposed to mood disorders may experience their first episode of psychological disturbance earlier than they would have done had they not taken MDMA. Controlled long-term cohort studies of users, with baseline measures of risk factors, are needed to assess this.

Nonpharmacologic therapy for gastroesophageal reflux disease

Initial therapy consists of diet and lifestyle modifications and use of antacids as needed. Lifestyle modifications include weight loss, reduced dietary fat, limitation of caffeine, chocolate and peppermint. Meals should be smaller and more frequent, and smoking and alcohol should be limited.

The flavor of roasted meats depends on their fat content

There are hundreds of odorant compounds, which vary according to the type of meat, the age of the animal, its diet, and the mode of cooking. Moreover, compounds present in minute quantities may be aromatically preponderant. One of the principal reactions responsible for generating tastes is the Maillard reaction between sugars (such as glucose) and amino acids. Named after Louis-Camille Maillard, a chemist in Nancy who first identified the reaction in 1912, it contributes to the flavor of bread crust as well as the roasted aroma of meats, beer, and chocolate, among other foods. This reaction also leads to the formation of the dark compounds called melanoidins, which give cooked foods their characteristic color.

Overthecounter medications

Nasal decongestants and anorectics, which are stimulants (e.g. pseudoephedrine, phenylpropranolamine), will cause insomnia. Caffeine, which is present in coffee, tea, colas, and chocolate, also is a stimulant and may cause insomnia. Over-the-counter sleeping pills are widely used for the induction of sleep. The active ingredients in these agents are antihistamines (diphenhydramine and doxylamine) and are the most commonly used antihistamines in over-the-counter preparations. They are H-, blockers and have undesirable anticholinergic effects (e.g. dryness of mouth, palpitation, dilatation of pupils, tachycardia, difficulty in urination) and cause daytime sedation.

Habituation Training Procedure All Arms Accessible Design

Animals are subjected to 5 days of acclimation trials in which they are allowed to explore the maze for a 5 to 10 minute period each day. During these trials, chocolate-flavored food pellets are scattered throughout the maze. Shaping procedures can be used, by confining the scattered pellets closer to the food cups on successive days (e.g., Day 1 food pellets are scattered throughout the maze Day 2 food pellets are located in the arms only Day 3 food pellets are located on the outer half of the arm Day 4 food pellets are located in the outermost third of the arm Day 5 a few food pellets are located around the outside of the food cup). During acclimation the pellet dispensers release food whenever the outermost photobeam is disrupted, to adapt subjects to the sound and action of the pellet dispensers. The E14-24 Coulbourn pellet dispenser is quieter than previous models and we have not had animals drop out due to the sound of this dispenser.

Urogenital Tract Pathogens

Traditional laboratory diagnosis of N. gonorrhoeae entails culture of endocervical or urethral swabs onto chocolate agar and selective, enriched media such as modified Thayer Martin. For male urethral swabs, Gram stain alone with the observation of gram-negative diplo-cocci is diagnostic by itself for N. gonorrhoeae (sensitivity 90 -95 specificity 95 -100 ).62 For female endocervical swabs or other specimen types from males and females, Gram stain alone is not diagnostic (sensitivity 50 -70 for endocervical). N. gonorrhoeae is fastidious, and the specimen needs to be transported in a transport medium or plated directly onto media at the bedside. Delays in culturing the specimen are associated with false-negative cultures. Plates are examined daily for 72 hours for the presence of colonies resembling Neisseria and identified by biochemical testing.

Clinical Features

Spontaneous hemorrhage is the most dreaded occurrence in a lymphangioma and may lead to eyelid ecchymosis, subconjunctival hemorrhage, and acute proptosis (Figure 14.6). This may create diagnostic difficulty in a patient with a previously undiagnosed asymptomatic lymphangioma. Acute increase in intraorbital pressure can result in compressive optic neuropathy and vision loss.37,39 In the clinical differential diagnosis of spontaneous orbital hemorrhage, the following possibilities should be considered in addition to lymphangioma trauma, bleeding disorder, orbital varix, and, rarely, cavernous hemangioma. One characteristic feature of lymphangioma is that the proptosis is exacerbated after trauma or upper respiratory tract infection.38,40 Under these circumstances, hemorrhage into the channels of the tumor may lead to the development of chocolate cysts.

On Chemistry in Cooking

Take Maillard reactions between amino acids and certain sugars, which produce the tasty brown compounds in the crust of roast beef and bread as well as the aromas of coffee and chocolate. Chemists know that these reactions differ according to the acidity of the reactional environment. Why not soak chicken breasts in vinegar or bicarbonate of soda before putting them under the broiler To obtain the right degree of acidity once the reaction has occurred, the vinegar could be neutralized with bicarbonate of soda or vice versa.

Morphologic Features

Is composed of bloodless ectatic lymph channels. These spaces are lined by a single layer of flat mesothe-lial cells (Figures 14.8 and 14.9). Hemorrhage into these spaces produces chocolate cysts. Lymphoid aggregates, with or without germinal centers, are often seen. Fibrosis is present in lymphangiomas with chronic recurrent hemorrhages.37 Lymphangioma may resemble a cavernous hemangioma or varix microscopically as well as clinically.

Behavioral modification

Detrusor instability (urge incontinence) may respond to dietary restriction of caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, and spicy food, as these can all cause bladder irritation. Scheduled toileting should be offered to incontinent patients. Bladder training (timed voiding) helps to progressively distend the bladder and allows the patient to regain control over voiding patterns. The patient is instructed to void at pre-assigned times during the waking hours. The initial voiding interval is set at less than the current voiding interval and is gradually increased.

Prevention Of Hyperphosphataemia

Patient awareness of phosphate-containing foods is essential in order to limit phosphate intake. Dairy products have two to three times more phosphate than equal quantities of protein derived from meat and therefore need to be limited. Milk intake should not exceed 1-3 pt day and other dairy-containing foods such as chocolate, cheese and yoghurt should be restricted. Other highphosphate foods such as offal and offal-containing products, veal and fish with edible bones, such as sardines, pilchards and shell fish also need to be limited.

From Emulsion to Foam

With this emulsion we can make a foam. Put the pan in a bowl partly filled with ice cubes to crystallize the chocolate around the air bubbles that we will next introduce by whisking the chilled sauce, either manually or with an electric mixer. The procedure is then exactly the same one followed in the case of Chantilly cream. Whisking creates large air bubbles in the sauce, which steadily thickens. Once the crystallization temperature is reached, the volume of the sauce suddenly expands, and its color changes from dark to blond chestnut. This lighter color results from the air bubbles, which can be seen under a microscope. They also gradually change the texture of the sauce After a while strands of chocolate form inside the loops of the whisk, just as in the case of Chantilly cream. In this way one obtains a foam that, unlike classic versions, is unadulterated by cr me fra che or stiffly whipped egg white. It is a purely chocolate mousse Want to try Melt a half pound of chocolate with...

Foamy Foie Gras and Cheese

Earlier we saw how to make Chantilly chocolate, a mousse made of (rather than with) chocolate. Why not repeat this experiment with foie gras Pour a glass of duck stock into a pan, add some foie gras, and stir over low heat. The melting foie gras forms fatty droplets that are dispersed in the water. Whisk this mixture in a bowl over ice cubes and you will achieve the consistency of whipped cream.

Pharmacokinetic Interactions

Drug interactions may result in impaired drug absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. The rate at which a drug is absorbed may be decreased by drugs such as anticholinergics, which inhibit gastric motility conversely, drugs such as meto-clopramide (which increase gastric motility) may enhance the absorption rate. Certain drugs form chelates and complexes with other drugs, altering their solubility and absorption. For example, agents that bind to digoxin in the gut (such as antacids and cholestyramine) reduce the extent of its absorption by 20 -35 (Brown and Juhl, 1976). However, despite these potential interactions few drug-drug interactions affect drug absorption to a clinically significant extent (May et al., 1987 Mclnnes and Brodie, 1988). Drugs that undergo extensive first-pass metabolism may be affected by other drugs, which alter liver blood flow or compete for metabolism. For example, the non-selective monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), such as phenelzine, reduce the...

Forbes Wolfe Nanotech Reports

Given the range of cosmetics using nanoparticulate metal oxides primarily for UV protection it is interesting to note a cosmetics product containing fullerene in the list. In this case the fullerene is claimed to have antioxidant properties. Carbon nanotubes have been used as a reinforcing component in a new baseball bat. Silver nanoparticles feature again, this time in socks where enhanced bonding of the 19 nm silver particles to the polyester fibres is claimed to provide enhanced and longer-lasting antimicrobial and antifungal performance. A novel chewing gum having chocolate flavour, which is apparently difficult to achieve, has been produced using nanoscale crystals'' of unknown chemistry to enhance the compatibility of the cocoa butter with the polymers that are used to give the gum elasticity. So-called self-cleaning windows and paint surfaces are also included in the top 10. These are based on photoactive titanium dioxide with the windows gaining a further benefit when it...

Mechanisms calcium and the regulation of energy metabolism

This brings up again an idea proposed a longer time ago, according to which the divalent cation calcium prevents the intestinal absorption of part of the dietary fat and increases faecal lipid loss and sterol excretion forming insoluble fatty acid soaps and bile salts (Denke et al., 1993, Drenick, 1961, Vaskonen et al., 2001, 2002, Vaskonen 2003, Welberg et al., 1994). By the same mechanism calcium may enhance a cholesterol-lowering effect of other food components, e.g. plant sterols (Vaskonen et al., 2001). The extent of this effect increased with an increasing proportion of long-chain saturated fatty acids in the diet, whereby, with Western eating habits, the energy excretion with fat is probably around 1 and 3 of the daily energy supply, i.e. around 30 and 90 kcal day. In a study by Shahkhalalili and co-workers (2001) calcium fortification of chocolate doubled calcium ingestion from 950 to 1855 mg day and increased faecal fat excretion by 36 kcal day (4.04 g day). This effect seems...

Extraction of Enzymes from Soil

A cathepsin-like activity was measured in a soil extract in 1954 (Antoniani et al. 1954). However, according to Skujins (1967), Fermi and Sabrama-nian were the first to measure enzyme activities (protease and aminase activities, respectively) in a soil extract. Urease was isolated from a surface forest soil with phosphate buffer at pH 6 and purified in the United States by Briggs and Segal (1963). In Australia, Ladd (1972) determined protease and peptidase activities in several pasture and wheat soil extracts by using 0.1 M Tris-borate buffer at pH 8.1 as an extractant. Then, in the 1970s and 1980s, lyase, oxidoreductase and hydrolase activities were monitored in soil extracts (Nannipieri et al. 1996). Several procedures for the extraction of enzymes from soil have been proposed and they are generally based on the use of salt solutions as extractants. Phosphate, acetate, citrate, tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane (tris), tris-borate, borate, etc., have been used to extract enzymes from...

Grape Seeds and Red Wine

Before advocating tea consumption as part of a healthy diet, three concerns must be studied further the role of caffeine in tea, reduced iron absorption with meals, and the high content of aluminum in tealeaf and brewed tea.30 The level of caffeine in 10 to 12 cups of tea daily is less than 400 to 450 mg day, which is considered a safe amount according to Canadian health authorities.31 North American adults are estimated to consume an average of 186 to 238 mg day which includes 60 from coffee, 30 from tea, and 10 from a mix of other sources such as colas, chocolate, and drugs. This is below the proposed upper level of safe daily caffeine intake with no associated risk from moderate caffeine consumption.32

Gastroesophageal Reflux

Both behavioral and pharmacologic interventions are typically employed to treat nocturnal GER. Patients should avoid eating at least two hours before bedtime, and should avoid high-fat content foods, caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, mint, citrus fruits, and caffeinated sodas, all of which may promote GER. Nicotine may decrease LES pressure, and patients should obviously be counseled to stop smoking. Obesity is associated with increased risk for GER, and obese patients should always be encouraged to lose weight via a combination of diet and exercise. Patients can be advised to sleep with the head of their bed elevated at least six inches, which can be achieved by placing blocks under the head of the bed. Evaluation of each patient's medical regimen is warranted, as many medications promote GER, including theophylline, calcium channel blockers, prostaglandins, and bisphosphonates.

Pests Diseases And Disorders

Lost, resulting in the production of many offsets. The disorders 'chocolate spot' and 'root rot' may have the appearance of fungal diseases, but no pathogen has been associated with them. Finally, there are a number of disorders in flower development, resulting in the death or deformity of the flower bud or floral organs.

Year Product

Cola nut is a native of West Africa, which has been introduced to the West Indies. It is used in large quantities in the soft drink industry. The active principles are caffeine (Figure 4) and theobromine (Figure 5), which are both stimulants. The active principles are also contained in a related plant, native to the New World, Theobroma cacao (Sterculiaceae), the source of cocoa and chocolate.

Complex Media

Many medically important bacteria are fastidious, requiring a medium that is even richer than nutrient agar. One rich medium commonly used in clinical laboratories is blood agar. This contains red blood cells, which supply a variety of nutrients including hemin, in addition to other ingredients. A medium used to culture even more fastidious bacteria is chocolate agar, named for its appearance rather than the ingredients. Chocolate agar contains lysed red blood cells and additional nutrients.


Many people think snacking is unhealthy and leads to weight gain because many people don't eat healthy snacks If you enjoy snacking and you want to maintain your body weight and perform well, then selecting healthy snacks is critical.

Food Crops

Cacao (chocolate), coconut, carob, licorice, quinine Other food crops add variety and pleasure to our diet by flavoring our water, beverages, and food. More than half the population ingests caffeine through drinking coffee, tea, and cola drinks. Both spices and herbs are used to add taste to food. In general, spices come from plant parts other than the leaf and are tropical. Herbs usually come from leaves and usually can be grown in a home garden. Flavorings, such as chocolate and coconut, are not usually considered spices or herbs and are therefore placed in a separate category. Another flavor, quinine, is used to make tonic water. Quinine comes from the bark of the cinchona tree and is used to treat malaria.

An unseen guest

I have heard all too often that children with autism are not capable of lying. Joe's blurring of fact and fiction throws a slightly different angle on that idea, however all four of the boys are quite capable of lying about whether or not they have done something wrong. The difference between them and the girls is that the boys cannot work out how their lies will be received. Matthew often refuses to admit that he is the one who took the last bar of chocolate, even when he has been

Treasured memories

If you ask my children to recall Easter, I know full well the one that will spring to their minds. It's not something I will forget easily either They often collapse into fits of giggles as they tell the tale, and relish the opportunity to recount it at the most inopportune moments. Easter is difficult in our house because the boys are on a gluten- and casein-free diet. There is always a great deal of tension as Joe gets angry and tries to steal the older children's Easter eggs. To compensate for their restrictions, I tend to go rather overboard by making treasure hunts and little games to play with their own special chocolate. One year we were all throwing sweets up in the air and seeing if any of us could catch them in our mouth. Whilst I played in one room with the boys, the girls did the same with chocolates and ofcourse I got the job ofmaking sure there was none on the floor that the boys could pick up later. As I scanned the floor for chocolate, I suddenly spied a stray...


Automated RAMs are available commercially. However, if good support personnel are available, a RAM can be constructed, fitted for the appropriate hardware, and computer interfaces programs generated in-house. The automated RAM that we use has three sets of photocells in each arm (located 6, 27, and 52.5 cm from the opening of the arm). The photocells are used to track the movement of the animal in the maze. The computer program (labVIEW, National Instruments) controls the dispensation of food when the outermost photocell of an arm is passed for the first time. The program also records arm entries exits an entered arm is considered exited when the innermost photobeam of another arm is interrupted. Errors are also automatically recorded an error is assigned when either the middle or the outermost photocell is triggered upon a re-entry into a previously rewarded arm.

Pushed by Fusion

Whitening threatens mainly chocolates whose interior, or lining, is rich in fats. When two blocks of fatty matter are combined, their fats become mixed The Whitening of Chocolate 225 together, especially at high temperatures (when the proportion of liquid and molecular motion both increase). The surface crystals of the whitened chocolate are quite different from those of the interior mass, being composed for the most part of triglycerides having a single double bond. The composition of the whitened crystals is virtually invariable, no matter what the fatty content of the lining, and similar to those of whitened chocolate without a lining. The migration of fats in the lining toward the covering layer of chocolate leads to an enlargement of the liquid phase of the covering layer. Consistent with the findings of the cnrs and Danone researchers, this enlargement accelerates whitening without changing the composition of the outer crystals. The moral of the tale is that if you want to...

Culturing is important to identify the organism and determine the in-vitro antimicrobial profile 4 initiation of the therapy, however, must not be delayed until the lab report is received. Multiple culture media should be used (blood and chocolate agar, Sabouraud's, thioglycollate broth, anaerobic blood, as well as various stains (Gram, Giemsa, fungal), but the most accurate and rapid identification comes from polymerase chain reaction 20 . Bactec broth5 is another medium with a high and fast yield 9 .

New Mousses

From emulsions we turn now to an analogous physical system, foams, which consist of air bubbles dispersed in a liquid or solid. The fact that a chocolate mousse can be obtained by whisking a chocolate emulsion, as we shall see later in this section, suggests that it may be possible to generalize this procedure.

Count your blessings

When they make progress at school or manage their behaviour well for even a short time. However small the accomplishment may seem to others, I can honestly say that the feeling of pride and wonder when one of the boys does something so seemingly simple and probably imperceptible to the untrained eye remains unrivalled (even chocolate doesn't come close ). One thing I have learned is that as parents of children with such differences, our ability to appreciate the little things that others take for granted is one of the greatest gifts they bestow on us and one that I wouldn't swap for the world.

Cooking Mayonnaise

By manipulating the texture of the mayonnaise we seem only to have created a sponge for soaking up oil. Let's try replacing the oil with chocolate (which is composed mostly of cocoa butter) and melting it in a pan with a bit of liquid that contains water (whether from rum, coffee, orange juice, or something else). Then, when the temperature of the resulting chocolate emulsion is still lower than the temperature at which albumen coagulates (62 c 144 f ), whisk the chocolate emulsion into an egg white. Finally, put this mixture in the microwave. What will happen The proteins of the egg white will gelatinize and imprison the chocolate emulsion. If you try this experiment yourself you will end up with a delicious chocolate cake whose flavor is much more powerful than that of an ordinary chocolate cake, probably because the chocolate is in a dispersed state, producing a novel texture (which you can vary as you like by modifying the proportions of water and chocolate). I suggest calling...


The herpes simplex virus causes sores in and outside of the mouth, in the genital areas, as well as other parts of the body. A sign of eruption is a tingling sensation followed by blisters that eventually crust over and disappear. The virus lives in nerve cells, protected from immune-system defenses, and remains dormant most of the time for life. The virus is contracted by skin to skin contact. Triggers that can cause an outbreak are fatigue, viral infections, sunlight, menstruation, and stress. In some people, foods high in the amino acid arginine can bring about an eruption the highest amounts are found in chocolate, nuts, and gelatin. To test for sensitivity to arginine, eat a handful of nuts or chocolate and see if there is a reaction overnight.


What are the common sources of dietary caffeine Coffee, tea, chocolate, sodas, and sport drinks top the list. But always read labels, since caffeine is a very popular stimulant, and any new food product could have it added. Although coffee typically leads the list for sheer amounts of caffeine delivered to the consumer, it is important to know that on an ounce-for-ounce basis, chocolate can deliver as much caffeine as some of the weaker coffees, such as instant. On the same equal amount basis, chocolate can deliver more caffeine than tea. Chocolate can be harmful for a number of reasons. In addition to the caffeine content mentioned above, chocolate also contains smaller amounts of a related chemical, theobromine. Theobromine affects the body in much the same way as caffeine, but it is even more potent. When you take into consideration both the caffeine and theobromine content of chocolate, an indulgence in chocolate for some people could minimize the positive effects of much of this...


Eating too fast or too much puts pressure on the sphincter muscle, weakening it, as does too much body weight. Eating the wrong foods or food combinations can cause heartburn. Foods that can act as muscle relaxants causing the sphincter muscle to open inappropriately are chocolate, fatty foods, and alcohol. Foods that increase the acidity of the stomach are coffee, beer, milk, and colas. Coffee, citrus foods, hot spicy foods, and tomatoes can irritate an already sensitive esophagus. Anxiety and stress can interfere with digestion. It is best to eat 3 hours before lying down. Lying on the left side eases symptoms because the esophagus enters the stomach on the right. Drinking water at the first sign of pain can dilute irritating acids.


Treatment involves managing acute attacks and long-term prevention and control. In acute attacks, the herbs ephedra and lobelia have been used. Caffeine can help prevent asthmatic attacks up to three cups of coffee a day have a bron-chodilating effect relaxing the bronchial muscles. Finding and eliminating allergens is important. Some allergic reactions may not occur for a day or more after exposure to an allergen. Milk, besides being a possible allergen, contains a protein that causes an increase in mucus secretion.

Selective Media

Isolate Neisseria gonorrhoeae from clinical specimens. This is chocolate agar to which three or more antimicrobial drugs have been added.

Because these drugs do not inhibit most strains of N. gonorrhoeae, they allow growth with little competition from other organisms.


Epilepsy is a dysfunction of the electrical activity in the brain. Seizures may involve loss of consciousness or be of a milder form with symptoms such as momentary loss of awareness, rapid heart beat, sweating, and high blood pressure. The illness is not always, but can be, inherited. Children in a study who had both migraine headaches and epileptic seizures had no seizures or had fewer when foods they were allergic to were eliminated from the diet. The common offenders are cow's milk and cheese, citrus fruits, eggs, wheat, corn, pork, tomatoes, and chocolate. The dose of anticonvulsant drugs may be able to be lessened only after pursuing other alternatives and doing so gradually over many weeks. Drug therapy may always be necessary but at a level that has lesser side effects. The intention of adjunct or alternative therapy is to moderate brain activity. Eliminate stimulants that activate brain activity such as coffee, alcohol, tea, tobacco, colas, and chocolate.
