Have Your Cake And Eat It Too

By Lori Holuta

Many chocolate devotees face dietary challenges. These may take the form of allergies, diabetes, weight control, lactose intolerance, or other special concerns.

Others may adhere to a vegetarian or vegan diet. Some just want to be aware of what they are eating and would like to gain control over their intake of certain foods. This shouldn't necessarily stop you from enjoying chocolate.

Having a food restriction can be a challenge. You shouldn't have to face it alone. Happily, you don't, as the internet is a treasure trove of information!

The About.com Guide to Allergies has written an informative article, Are You Allergic To Chocolate? Be sure to click the link at the bottom of her article, which will give you additional information about allergies and chocolate.

Most people are not actually allergic to chocolate. A recent study shows that only one out of every 500 people who thought they were allergic to chocolate actually had been diagnosed correctly. What triggers the rest of the allergic reactions is often the additives blended into the chocolate, such as corn syrup, gluten, nuts, and lecithin. Be sure to talk with your own doctor about your allergies. With the right diagnosis and information, you'll be able to enjoy your sweets without regrets.

Be sure to browse the links we have collected here at CocoaJava. We have entire pages devoted to links around the web that focus on low fat, dairy free, eggless, sugar free, and vegan/vegetarian cooking ideas and recipes.
