Chocolate Processed With Alkali

10 May 2009 - 02:11 PM

what do you know about chocolate alkali? Is it safe? When I first went gluten free and researched it some old information said ketchup, vanilla, some alcohol wasn't safe... is this the same for chocolate alkali? That perhaps it was thought not to be safe - but is it? I've been known to eat my fair share of it and never had a problem, but some just told me today it's not gluten free, so I'm very curious.

Thanks!

The Melting Pot

10 May 2009 - 02:08 PM

so this is a "twofer" posting... a comment and a question.

We went to The Melting Pot for Mother's DAy, and it was FAB!! I had emailed ahead and was assured they would take good care of me, and they sure did. Everything was discussed ahead of time, changes made for me (like sub a different meat for a teryaki marinated meat) and the food was great. It's expensive, and it's leisurely (3 hours!) but I loved it.

Except for a waiter who has celiac. It was very nice of him to come and talk to me, but frankly his attitude was not friendly. He kept trying to explain to me that I couldn't have chocolate fondue since they use chocolate processed with alkali and that it's not gluten free. He even went so far as to tell me they would not serve it to me since it wouldn't be safe for me to eat. While I appreciate his determination and helpfulness to come talk to me, he really had a bad attitude about it. We've all had to do battle about telling people what we can and can't eat, but at least we're nice about it - aren't we :-) When I explained I've never reacted to chocolate processed w/ alkali he said I wasn't getting proper care from my doctor!

So my question is - what do you know about chocolate alkali? Is it safe? When I first went gluten free and researched it some old information said ketchup, vanilla, some alcohol wasn't safe... is this the same for chocolate alkali? That perhaps it was thought not to be safe - but it is?

We ended up going w/ Bananas Foster, made from white chocolate, and it was so yummy this is hardly a complaint, but my whole dining party is so curious now! Please share what you know, and if you want a fabulous (expensive) leisurely dinner, check out the Melting Pot!

University Of Michigan Dining Halls

I have recently started working for UM Housing, imagine my surprise and delight to come across such a comprehensive list of allergy free foods. The gluten-free list is several pages long, and apparently gluten-free pizza is always available - you just have to ask and they will "whip one up for you".

Now you only have to come up with the money to send your kids to school here!
