Do merci products contain ingredients of animal origin?
We use vegetable-based and dairy products to make our merci products. The merci Finest Selection assorted crunchy almond varieties also contain chicken egg white as an ingredient.
Do merci products contain alcohol?
Alcohol is not an ingredient of merci chocolate. However, some of the flavourings in the chocolate fillings may contain alcohol as they can only be extracted with the aid of alcohol and therefore come into contact with alcohol in the course of the extraction process. The volume of alcohol that reaches the end product in this way is roughly equivalent to the volume of alcohol that ordinary fruit juices contain due to the natural fermentation of the fruit.
Are merci products gluten-free?
Most of our products meet the legal and the German Coeliac Society (DZG) standards for gluten-free food (maximum of 20mg gluten per kg food).
The merci product Finest Selection assorted crunchy almond variety is not gluten-free, as it contains wheat protein and wheat malt.
