Re: chocolate lovers beware: new ingredient..PGPR
Yes, PGPR is crap and it is in almost all commerical chocolate. It is not currently in Lindol's truffle balls, I don't know about their candy bars. Helped me to walk away from Hershey's, Nestle's, and M&M/Mars -- I also think Cadbury is also using PGPR.

Also note - 99% of 'sugar' chewing gum now has aspartame in it also - read the labels if you don't believe me.

Re: chocolate lovers beware: new ingredient..PGPR
Just checked, PGPR is now in Cadbury's mini eggs. This year the chocolate is 100% HERSHEY'S, no longer the GOOD Cadbury chocolate. When Hershey first bought Cadbury, they still used the good stuff till this year. It is GARBAGE chocolate now.

Re: chocolate lovers beware: new ingredient..PGPR
Since 2006, commercial-grade candy bars, such as those made by Hersheys and Nestle, made an industry-wide switch to include PGPR as an ingredient - a possible indicator of a cost saving measure by the commercial chocolate industry. Makers of PGPR (see source link below) such as Danisco and Palsgaard indicate that PGPR can be used to replace the more expensive cocoa butter as an ingredient in chocolate.

PGPR is a yellowish, viscous liquid comprised of polyglycerol esters of polycondensed fatty acids from castor oil. It may also be polyglycerol esters of dimerized fatty acids of soya bean oil.

PGPR is strongly lipophilic, soluble in fats and oils and insoluble in water and ethyl alcohol. In chocolates it is used as a viscosity reducing agent. [1]. It is virtually always paired with lecithin or another plastic viscosity reducing agent.

It can also be used as an emulsifier in spreads and in salad dressings or as a crystal inhibitor and anti-clouding agent in fractionated vegetable oils.

The Vegan Society claims that PGPR may be animal derived, but no evidence has been presented that any commercially available PGPR products are made using animal-derived substances.

Re: chocolate lovers beware: new ingredient..PGPR
Don't forget until Milton Hershey reverse-engineered the European recipes and developed means of mass-production, chocolate was a rarity reserved for the wealthy. Hershey's innovation was the 5 cent chocolate bar, like Ford's $5/day wage and pricing his horseless carriages so that the middle class could afford one.

Re: chocolate lovers beware: new ingredient..PGPR
Btw, they have been adding this crap to certain brands of chocolate since at least 2003.

I had bought a Mounds bar {which is dark chocolate }
and happened to read the ingredients and saw PGPR listed.
I didn't think much of it until about an hour later when I felt sick to my stomach.
I called the 800 # that's on the wrapper to ask them what this PGPR stuff was,
and Customer service couldn't give me any answer other than, "it's a nontoxic food aditive"


yeah, NON-TOXIC, same as the Food Industry tells us about Aspartame, that it's *safe* >

Yeah right, and there's a bridge for sale in Brooklyn, real cheap.

I have a Cadbury bar right here.

Ingredients: Semi-sweet chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, chocolate, milk fat, natural and artificial flavors, soy lecithin, milk)

Thats it. No PGPR. No Aspartame.

Re: chocolate lovers beware: new ingredient..PGPR
It's very interesting that they continually change the ingredients of what I've been eating for the last 40 years.

No wonder I feel sick.

Me and my wife will make our own chocolates from now on.

It's easy anyway.

You need 2 tubs of PGPR
1 Block of Aspartime.
3 cakes of MSG
and my favorite ingredient : natural flavoring identitcal to nature No. #335678

Don't worry, it's identical to nature.
That's why we don't use nature, we synthetically produce nature. Whatever flavor it could be we don't tell you on the lable, it's the flavor of human embryos naturally identical to 1 week old abortions.
We are weening you onto the GREEN.

Re: chocolate lovers beware: new ingredient..PGPR
From the OP's link:

"Why do manufacturers use PGPR? Cost-cutting, of course. Our society relies so heavily on mass-marketed products that businesses will do whatever they can to cut corners in production to bring what they believe is an acceptable end product to the consumer at the lowest possible cost.

Sounds like a smart business strategy, right? After all, why else would all these companies be pouring stomach-busting maltitol and lactitol in their products? It's cheap and the consumer backlash is minimal, that's why."

There's your answer to what "maltilol" is, as well as "lactitol".
