What is vegan chocolate?

Chocolate in its purest form cannot be any more vegan than it is. It is derived from cocoa, a plant-based food. However, by the time the cocoa from the plant reaches you, it has been subjected to rigorous processing with chemicals and milk or milk fat, making it an animal-based product. Vegan chocolates are considerably more pure, healthier, and delicious than chocolates laced with chemical additives and cheap animal fat.

Vegan chocolate is made by replacing dairy products with plant-based replacements. Common milk solids and milk fat alternatives include:

  • Non dairy milk such as almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or rice milk can be used in place of normal cow's milk.
  • Cocoa butter: This is a natural fat produced from cocoa beans that is utilised to provide the creamy texture in many vegan chocolate products.
  • Coconut oil: Coconut oil adds richness to chocolate and is sometimes used as a substitute for cocoa butter.
  • Almond butter, peanut butter, or other nut butters can be mixed into the chocolate to add flavour and texture.
