Chocolate may be the world’s favorite sweet, but not everyone is able to enjoy this rich, melty treat. People with chocolate allergies may experience a variety of symptoms, including stomach cramps, shortness of breath, hives, vomiting, and swelling of the lips, tongue or throat if they indulge.
Many assume that the culprit is cocoa (the raw ingredient from which chocolate is made) but people with chocolate allergies may be in for an unsettling reality check. According to some sources, their reaction is nothing to do with cocoa beans – instead, they may be experiencing an allergic reaction to consuming bits of cockroaches.

It’s the revelation no-one wanted. Every time you eat chocolate, you could be chomping down fragments of filth-loving roaches. But is it really true that there are cockroaches in chocolate? And, if so, why? How did they get in there? Is it still safe to eat your favorite sweet snacks? And is there anything you can do to avoid including roaches in your diet?

Why is it legal for chocolate
 to contain a small percentage 
of bug bits?

Turns out its not just chocolate that may contain cockroach fragments. Almost everything you eat – from broccoli to canned tomatoes and cereal – is likely to contain insect fragments. Over the course of a year this adds up to a lot of accidentally-eaten bugs, and it’s 100% FDA approved. But why is this allowed to happen?

The reality is that bugs are everywhere, and it’s impossible to keep all of them out of our food. Small numbers of insects inevitably find their way into production facilities and wind up as a component of whatever foodstuff gets churned out at the end. The result is that almost everything we eat contains a little bit of bug and, for the most part, it’s completely safe to eat them. For this reason, the FDA considers a little insect consumption to be a natural part of the food in

Is it safe to eat chocolate

 in it?

1. First, while there may be cockroaches in your candy bar, they are there in such tiny amounts that they’re highly unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.
And second, insects are in everything we eat. For better or worse, bug bits can be found in the vast majority of food items and we eat them all the time, without even knowing. This means that people with roach allergies would react to almost everything they put in their mouth. 

2. For people with allergies, however, it could be a different story. Cockroach allergens have been known to cause asthma for 50 years. Though this usually happens when tiny roach fragments are inhaled from the air over long periods of time (i.e. in a heavily roach-infested house). In fact, there has been little research into the effects of actually consuming cockroaches. So is it feasible that someone could have a reaction just from eating chocolate?

Given that skin tests have been found to cause an allergic reaction in sufferers, it’s possible that people with severe allergies could react to eating cockroaches. However, it’s important to remember two things when it comes to your chocolate.
