“Love” in every bite?

The Nashoba Brook Bakery lists “love” as an ingredient in their products. According to the Food and Drug Administration, that’s a no-no.


The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act requires that every ingredient be listed by its “common or usual name.” Because “love” is not a common or usual name for an ingredient, it is counter to the Act. Or so says the FDA.


I’m not so sure. I’ve eaten some food where I’m positive I can taste the love. I can’t think of any more common or usual name for it.
