This fine product has eggs on the label, and in the bottle, so it comes equipped with an allergen qualification, on the approval. The above qualification says:
The disclosure of allergens used in this product is voluntary, pending final rulemaking (See Notice No. 62, 71 FR 42329). However; any reference made to allergens must declare all allergens used in the production of this product, including fining or processing agents.
And it is a harbinger of the allergen fun that is soon to commence. Soon, allergen disclosures will be mandatory on beer, wine and spirits. There is not much on the web or in the rules to explain how Advocaat should be made and where the name comes from, but the Bak’s label does a pretty good job. It explains that Bak’s Advocaat is made with potato spirits, egg yolk, sugar, vanilla and a bit of brandy.
