I stopped eating gluten about 3 weeks ago, i also stopped eating soya, msg, dairy and basically everything processed. Only thing i do have is green & blacks 85% dark organic chocolate, chocolate is my one addiction. I've noticed though that when i have some i start to have symptoms, irritability, foggy head. It does say on the label that it may contain soya or milk so i'm gussing it could be that. Does anyone know of any chocolate that is safe to eat cos i really can't imagine having to give up chocolate along with everything else.

I love chocolate too, but being allergic to soy means I can't have it. I buy the 100% cacoa chocolate bars. It is a little bitter to begin with, but you get used to it. I now thoroughly enjoy it. Dip it in peanut butter (Maranatha brand is the best) to get started. Eventually you will like it, and won't miss the sugary icky chocolate of past days..

There are Chocolate Chips by "Life is Good" and they are strictly Allergy Free.

I have not had Chocolate for 2 years due to Nut Allergy and this product is dedicated to being allergen free.
No Financial Interest, just a happy customer.

I can't eat dark chocolate, gluten-free or not, in any significant quantity.
Did you use to eat such dark chocolate? There's a lot of salicylates and amines in chocolate and those 85% bars are pretty intense. if you try another brand (gluten-free, like Dagoba) try the same portion size and see how you feel. I've got my fingers crossed for you!

Green and Black does indeed contain Soya Lecithin unfortunately. One good place to get chocolate is http://www.soyfreesales.com/index.htm
The other site I was going to suggest is temporarily closed while relocating but will be re-opening soon hopefully... http://www.wheyoutch...e.com/index.htm

They both are great!!!

My husband brought me 2 Green and Black white chocolate bars yesterday and for some reason I looked at the ingredients and saw the nasty word wheat. Went on their website and all their gluten free info is gone and instead is listed may contain wheat. I love white chocolate and am allergic to dark and this was the only game in town so I called them. They said they process wheat on the same lines as their chocolate and can no longer say they are gluten free. Any of it. So, if you're still eating it, be aware you may be getting wheat along with it. What a lousy day! First Mission tortillas and now this. Two of my favorites. But, maybe that explains why I am always getting "mystery glutening". So, I got a new box of jelly bellys and decided to check their website which has always said they are gluten free. Well, guess what? All that info is GONE. So, I wrote to them and am awaiting a reply. Until then, I am not touching them. :(

I've been using Enjoy Life Chocolate Bars and Chips. I like them. You can find them in the Gluten Free Mall. I buy them at Meijers.
