Opinion: Cocoa farmers need bigger slice of profits

After seeing Cocoa-nomics, the documentary about the chocolate industry's efforts to end slavery and child labor in its supply chains, Han de Groot, Executive Director of UTZ Certified, which promotes sustainable cocoa, coffee and tea, was prompted to write about his experiences working with farmers in Ivory Coast.

He says progress is being made. But there is much to do, especially alleviate crippling poverty and ensure that farmers get a greater slice of the industry's revenues. If not, he argues, chocolate will become an expensive niche product and communities which depend on cocoa will suffer further.

    In recent years, the extensive research into probiotics
    and the microbiome leaves undoubtedly these novel products can benefit some aspects of human health.

    Specifically, science has identified regions of use for diarrhea, respiratory conditions,
    and some infant illnesses and conditions. Probiotics might also assistance with weight loss, gut issues and constipation, and mental health.

    People may do their own research into which specific
    strains might benefit their unique condition.
    A healthcare professional can assistance with this.

    They could choose Probiotics UK according for their CFU, the strains included, and if the merchandise also includes prebiotics.

    Probiotic manufacturers measure amounts of bacteria in colony-forming units
    (CFUs). Supplements may vary, with some commonly having a CFU of
    billions. Foods with added probiotics often contain lower variety of bacteria.
    Generally, people usually takes higher-CFU products for specific conditions and a lower-CFU product for general health maintenance.

    Some formulas might also contain prebiotics. Including prebiotics can be beneficial, as they offer substances for
    Best Probiotics
    to digest. This method can produce short-chain fatty acids, which
    can help maintain the fitness of a person's colon and immune system.

    Some research suggests that for prebiotics to be effective, they should withstand food processing and reach the colon undigested.
    Some of the very most common forms of prebiotic in supplements and foods are called oligosaccharides.

    Some people's bodies can be sensitive to prebiotics, so taking an excessive amount
    of them can cause flatulence or diarrhea. Such people can obtain the health
    benefits of prebiotics by instead including plenty of fiber and resistant starch inside their diets and eating foods such as garlic, onions,
    bananas, and oats.

  44. best travel mug uk

    Excellent. I've been using the Lifeventure Vacuum mug for quite some
    time, but that's more suited to going for a
    hot drink to your destination, sitting yourself down and drinking it in a single go.
    If you're travelling on the bus or train it is a real faff to constantly unscrew the
    Lifeventure mug lid, deal with the resulting
    condensation drip, have a sip (and only a sip because invariably the metal rim of the
    mug is far too hot) and screw the lid back on – and then only IF you are able
    to screw it back on correctly, the Lifeventure mug lid threads
    are likely to do their very own thing over time.
    Both mine and my girlfriends have almost created new paths in the plastic thread, and it can be extremely frustrating and time-consuming
    looking to get the lid back on properly!

    Obviously, you'll only learn you didn't obtain it
    back on properly whenever you realise it returned into your bag or pocket and leaked

    That's not saying the Lifeventure mug isn't good – but it is more suited to camping
    or hiking I think.

    So we were buying a similar double-walled design mug with a much better lid that's more worthy
    of drinking from on the go.

    The 720° mug so far has been excellent. The inner wall looks only a little
    thinner and shinier (cheaper looking?) compared to the Lifeventure mug, but
    that is clearly a small quibble. I enjoy the entire look of this
    mug and the fact that you can sip from any part of the top is great.
    It keeps your tea or coffee super-hot too and
    for quite a while!

    Up to now it's only been in my jacket pocket so I can't attest
    to how leak proof it is, at some stage I'll keep it within my bag to
    check

    The bottom line is, somewhat pricey but ultimately it can pay for
    itself if you're buying your coffee out and about,
    most places now provide a discount for making use of your own mug.

    I bought two of those blind, based purely on positive reviews and I'm
    really pleased about the purchase, I would certainly buy again.

    UPDATE. Sometime on, and everyday use, the most truly
    effective edge of the outer plastic/paint material is coming away.
    Only on that area though. I've dropped it numerous times and the coating is coming
    away in those areas too, but that's to be anticipated where dropped.
    But the top of edge, all around? Is just a bit of a mystery.
    The Black one my partner uses is absolutely fine.

    Would the maker care to comment I
