    Enough: $wrapper->body->set(array('value' => "<b>The second body.</b>")); – Nikit Nov 16 '14 at 1:14
  • Welcome to Drupal Answers! Did you try setting just value and see what happens? If you have specific doubts, you should ask about them. – kiamlaluno Nov 16 '14 at 6:29


If you are adding field programmatically you only need to set value.

The safe value is generated when the field is loaded. It is the value passed through the function _text_sanitize() which in this case i think is called through text_field_load()
