Cocoa is not SCD/GAPS ‘legal’. However, we are aware that a number of people are curious about this item and that several have tried it. So, while not recommending it, we would like to gather an accurate representation of its effects in those needing SCD and GAPS.
While on SCD and/or GAPS, have you completed an accurate test of pure, organic cocoa and noted your results? Please note: An accurate test would involve:
- having been in a state of wellness for at least a week
- the cocoa being the only new item you have added in the past week
- the item being pure, organic cocoa (ie. not cocoa with chemicals, cocoa plus cane syrup, cocoa with milk, cocoa + flour, a chocolate bar, etc)
If so, was it fine in your (or your child’s) body or did you (or your child) react to it?
Please tell us here, so that we can provide informative results for other SCDers: [polldaddy poll=1615594]
