Is chocolate an allergen?
Current European regulations list 14 major allergens. Cocoa beans are not one of them.
However, our products may contain and/or do contain one or more allergens on the list of 14 that must be stated. The official list of allergens fixed under EU legislation is occasionally revised.
Allergy-causing ingredients are indicated in the ingredient lists. You can find our datasheets on every product page.
