Posted by louis at 05/26/09 15:03:33I just bought some Green and Blacks Dark Chocolate with Cherry. Their recipe states whole milk powder as an ingredient. Checked their website
and here are some q and as addressing milk issue.
Q Has the recipe for dark chocolate changed?
A No, the recipe has remained the same since 1998.
Q The vegan statement has gone; has the product ever been suitable for vegans?
A By definition vegan products contain no ingredients derived from animals within the recipe and this still remains true for Green & Black's dark chocolate. However as our dark chocolate is made on the same production line as our milk chocolate there is some risk of cross contact. As a result, the desire for clearer allergen labelling now conflicts with the vegan statement and we have reluctantly decided to remove it from our labelling.
Q Why can't you make your dark chocolate on a dedicated line?
A The restrictions for organic segregation and the design of plant we need for our type of chocolate restricts the availability of equipment. We are looking at alternative equipment and hope in the future to reverse this change.
If this company can't be bothered to have a separate line,
try other choc makers, like Booja Booja instead
