Alabama Valentine Chocolate Contains Insect Fragments
You might not want to share this information with your honey if you are planning on giving them chocolate for Valentine’s day.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows certain levels of insect parts in food products. The FDA has established tolerance levels for certain types of insects, insect eggs, and other natural contaminants in food products, as it is recognized that it is difficult to grow crops and produce food that is completely free of these materials.
So how many insect parts should you expect in your Valentine chocolates?
The FDA allows an average of 60 or more insect parts per 100 grams of chocolate.
The tolerances are designed to ensure that food products are safe to eat and do not pose a health risk to consumers.
So as your honey devours that Valentine chocolate, look lovingly at them with a big smile. And never, ever reveal the sweet content found in this article.
