How To Choose The Best Vegan Chocolate

Vegan chocolate is becoming more popular because of the growing interest in sustainable products and people's increasing awareness of their dietary choices. More and more people are seeking alternatives to traditional chocolate. What's great about vegan chocolate is that it's not exclusive to vegans or those on a plant-based diet; everyone can enjoy it.

However, when buying vegan chocolate, several important factors must be considered to ensure you're getting a quality product that aligns with your dietary preferences. Here's what to look out for:

1. Check the ingredients list

One of the first things you need to do is to check the ingredient list carefully. What makes vegan chocolate vegan is that it does not contain any animal-derived ingredients such as milk, whey, casein, or other dairy derivatives. Instead look for ingredients such as:

  • Cocoa 
  • Cacao 
  • Cacao butter
  • Natural sweeteners such as dates, bananas and maple syrup 
  • Plant-based flavours, from fruit and vegetables

Some vegan chocolate bars are not necessarily dairy-free and may contain, for example, soy or almond milk. 

2. Allergen information

If you have any food allergies or sensitivities, be sure to check the allergen information on the packaging to avoid potential allergens such as nuts or gluten. These are some of the ingredients that can be present in vegan chocolate so it’s important to be aware of this when choosing your vegan or plant-based choc.

3. Think about flavour

Vegan chocolate is anything but dull and ordinary. What makes vegan choc a great alternative to traditional chocolate is that you can explore different flavours and varieties. Whether you prefer nutty, salted caramel, or white chocolate, you can find all these exciting varieties in vegan chocolate as well.
