CHOCOLATE

Apart from the problem that some people have with the stimulant element of the chocolate and the sugar content, there are subtler, yet I would consider more important, factors.


Soya products are used in two main ways

1. As a substitute for the white effect of milk and
2. It's derivative; 'lecithin' for it's emulsifing properties.

To avoid all the above you can try Rapunzel Chocolate

Plamil uses lecithin from sunflower seeds in it's organic and non-organic chocolate. "We use sunflower Lecithin in all products where Lecithin is used, . . . . . . even when we add a Soya ingredient. . . . . there is currently no organic Lecithin of any commercial grade available. . . . . . (Plamil : - 6th July, 2004)

Green and Black, label their Organic Chocolate as GMO free.

Evernat will not confirm that the soya lecithin is GM FREE
.

Be carful out there.
