Gnoza Knows It | Do chocolate bars contain insect parts?
A person by the name of Tom got in contact with CBS21, he says he’s heard that the average chocolate bar contains 8 insect parts.
Extensive research found that ABC news actually did a report 5 years ago in which they found that, yes, the average chocolate bar contains 8 insect parts.
You think, oh my gosh, how could that be?
In fact, the FDA actually has a limit on how many insect fragments can be in 100 milligrams of chocolate. And that would be 90. It says it right here on the FDA website.
You might even have some rat hair fragments in there.
But consider this as well. That is not saying -all- chocolate has that. And it's not just chocolate where there is permissible foreign matter.
The FDA allows red fish and ocean perch to have 3% of its fillets to have one or more copepods accompanied by pus pockets. That's a parasite.
And for hops, they allow 2,500 aphids per 10 grams.
Ginger may have an average of 3 milligrams or more of mammalian feces per pound.
All food has something in it. Obviously it isn't hurting us.
The parts are so minute to be inconsequential.
And look at it this way. There are a lot of cultures that eat insects. The entire insect.
