if some members of the U.S. Chocolate Industry have their way, it will negatively change the quality of chocolate you love. Their plan is to change the basic formula of chocolate in order to use vegetable fat substitutes in place of cocoa butter, and to use milk substitutes in the place of nutritionally superior milk. These changes will have adverse effects on the eating, physical and nutritional quality of chocolate, and beg the question: What consumer benefit is associated with implementing these changes? The answer is…none.

Guittard, a fine Bay Area chocolate company, has an easy way to send a message to the FDA. Please do this by April 25th. http://dontmesswithourchocolate.guittard.com/howtohelp.asp

This is not a joke. The FDA docket number is 2007P-0085.
