Why The FDA Is Warning People About Dark Chocolate

Allergic to milk, or know someone who is? A recent study by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found that 59 percent of dark chocolate products in the U.S. contain trace amounts of milk.

And, you can’t always tell that’s the case simply by reading the food label.

“This can be a problem, since even one small bite of a product containing milk can cause a dangerous reaction in some individuals,” researcher Binaifer Bedford, M.S., an Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education fellow, said in an FDA statement.

Dark chocolate has long been heralded as a way to enjoy delicious chocolate flavor sans milk. But the FDA test of more than 100 dark chocolate bars revealed that many of them contained undeclared milk. While it’s probably not on purpose, this contamination could happen when a dark chocolate product shares equipment with a milk or white chocolate product.

In other chocolate (bad) news, some popular chocolate brands may toxic.

Consumer health watchdog As You Sow filed notices of legal action on Wednesday against Hershey’s, See’s Candies, and Mars, alleging violation of California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act for failure to warn consumers of the toxic chemical cadmium in the companies’ chocolate products.

I thought it was white chocolate that didn't have milk in it. I seems to remember when my brother was allergic to milk products that my parents got him white chocolate for Easter.

I used to devour a candy bar two at a time when I was still worrying about estrogen.
All things have passed and I don't crave it any longer.

I crave other things now.. hehe

I never cared for sweets much either. But every once in awhile I liked something substantial (and worth the money) so I ate a little chocolate. It has nothing to do with estrogen that I know of
