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:
