You know I’m not a big fan of chocolate. I eat it occasionally and I’ll never turn down a good chocolate mousse or hot chocolate covered in whipped cream but chocolate isn’t on my top 10 list of yummy foods.

I found this recent post from the FDA that I found interesting and wanted to share with all of you. Translation: yes, more homework.

Here’s a question to start off the homework: do you think dark chocolate contains milk?

I mean, it’s not called milk chocolate, it’s called dark chocolate. Now, you may be thinking, “I don’t care. So who cares if there’s a little milk in the dark chocolate. Big whoop.”

Well, it would be a big deal for someone who’s allergic to milk products. That’s why I was so intrigued by this recent post from the FDA. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released a study that tested 100 dark chocolate products and found that many contained milk.

You’re next comment might be, “Oh well…I’m sure the ingredient list or label would have noted that the chocolate might contain milk.”

Ah…you see, that ties in to the next important point of that FDA study: you can’t always tell from the packaging. Among other findings, they discovered that even some dark chocolate labeled as dairy free contained milk!

Now, I could go on and on and on about the findings from this FDA study or you could just read all the juicy details yourself.

So, here you go.

Homework! Milk-Allergic? There May Be Milk in That Dark Chocolate
