Keep Our Chocolate (and Food) Real!

imageThe FDA is considering a petition by chocolate manufacturers to change the very definition of chocolate, which would allow the stuff that we buy called Chocolate to contain alternative vegetable fats (tropical oils) instead of the natural cocoa butter that has always been a part of our chocolate bars.

Follow my continuing coverage of the fight to Keep it Real here.

Submit your comments directly to the FDA here - the deadline is now June 25th.

  1. This extension is promising, despite my cynicism where the FDA is concerned.  I’ve linked this post to my home page in hopes that it will generate even one more comment for the cause.  Thanks for this as well as your recent visit to my blog.
