Traces Of Gluten In Chocolate

Recommended Posts

So my favourite chocolate manufacturer has now started putting "may contain traces of gluten" on all their chocolates. This is Cadbury (South Africa), not sure if it's the same elsewhere? They used to only have this warning on their big slabs of chocolate, but have recently repackaged their smaller chocolates into "mini-slab" like things, and the warning is now there as well. The "speciality" chocolates don't have the warning - flake, crunchie etc - but sometimes I just want plain cadbury chocolate, maybe with some nuts, and now that's not a possibility :(

So what in the world is cadbury doing with their chocolate - throwing flour around to aid in the manufacturing process? Why in the world would they need to use gluten in plain chocolate?

Finally, can I trust other manufacturers if they *don't* put any "may contain traces of gluten" on their chocolate slabs? Is this something that is recommended but not necessary in the labelling laws?


Feb 2010 - Start of continuous GIT problems and panic attacks

July 2010 - Blood and biopsy -ve, went gluten free after testing which completely relieved symptoms

July 2011 - 1 year gluten free, food intolerances (Chicken, eggs, olives, goat milk) gone!

2012 - Soy no longer a problem

Don't you just want to scream?

I cannot remember the candy, but I was at the store. The ingredients had nothing to do with wheat, barley malt, soy, milk. Then in big print it said, " this product contains ( not may contain) wheat, soy, dairy, etc". What the ?

Here's the gluten info off the Cadbury website. This is their Australian site and I'm not sure if Cadbury export to South Africa or if it is manufactured there. You might want to contact them to check that this info is correct for the country you are in.
