James sent me this tidbit last night- though you might be interested...
>Hey, any thing come up on Cooks list about the FDA modifying the
>definition of 'chocolate' to include 'substitute forms of fat,
>rather than cocoa butter?
>Not sure why the cattlemen's association has an interest in this,
>but they signed on as one of the 'citizens' in a citizens petition
>to FDA. Basically, the associations calling themselves 'citizens'
>seem to think most people don't know what's in their food and don't
>care if it's modified, changed, or substituted.
>This sight as a broader coverage of what the change will do to food standards:

our abilities." -Albus Dumbledore
