This may already have been asked and answered, but I can't find it.
Does anyone have a link for the EU chocolate requirements? Is there a site that gives the guidelines like the FDA does? Something that shows what minimum cocoa mass for Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate.....what additives (vanilla or lecithin) that are allowed?
Thanks to anyone that can help!
Andrea

This is the only thing I found for Europe.

Here's the FDA guidelines if anyone wants them;

The product information sheets I get refer to EC directive 2000/36/EC. The following link might help:[url]http://faolex.fao.org/cgi-bin/faolex.exe?rec_id=029758&database=FAOLEX&search_type=link&table=result&lang=eng&format_name=@ERALL[/url]
