How Can I Tell If Chocolate Is Gluten Free?
The easiest way to tell if a chocolate bar is gluten free or not is by checking the ingredients list at the back. Many chocolate bars with candies and crispy cereal in can contain gluten, look for ingredients such as barley and malt.
Try to look for labels which state gluten free and that the chocolate has been manufactured in a gluten free facility.
Overall, some Cadbury chocolate is gluten free, but not all of it, popular bars such as plain dairy milk are not gluten free for example due to the risk of it containing gluten from contamination in the factory.
Always double-check the label of your chocolate to be on the safe side and avoid chocolates which state they have wheat, barley or malt in them since they will contain gluten, crispy cereals and candies inside of the chocolate can also indicate gluten.
