Hi J.K. Thank you for your reply. I don’t know if this would apply to your chocolate issues but I’ve been reading here today about fructans and f.m. - fructose malabsorption. I’m interpreting that to mean any type of sugar, in any amount. Fruits, certain vegetables by nature (carrots) can trigger issues. Perhaps there is something sugar-like in your chocolate even though it’s Dark. I hope this possibly helps, I’m new to all of this but am seeing things here that make a lot of sense for me regarding this topic. Best wishes to you and thank you for being a Volunteer Mentor!
