Is Chocolate Vegan?

If you’re lactose intolerant or vegan, the question “does chocolate contain dairy?” will pop up. Chances are, you have a sweet tooth and enjoy the finer things in life. And there’s nothing finer than luxury gourmet chocolate. Good news though; Chocolate can be vegan. 

Many luxury gourmet chocolate makers, like Forte, fully utilize the cocoa butter component of chocolate which adds the texture that everyone loves. Furthermore, because chocolate comes from cacao beans which grow on cacao trees, it is inherently plant-based. 

However, when you consider the making of chocolate, things get a bit complicated. This is because of the ingredients added to create that chocolate bar you love so much. 


What is Vegan Chocolate?

Vegan chocolate is simply any chocolate made without the added ingredients of animal products, including processing the sugar without bone char. Searching for quality vegan chocolate? Always review the ingredients list. Keep in mind that cocoa butter is vegan. This type of butter naturally comes from the cacao bean. 

Moreover, dark chocolate is a wonderful option for those participating in plant-based diets. Dark chocolate is a powerful source of antioxidants. And, antioxidants help your body fight off harmful free radicals. Savor that truffle!

Speaking of truffles, Forte has concocted a Superfood Vegan Truffle. Instead of traditional dairy-based ganache, this ganache is made with a coconut oil base. Why’s it a superfood? Well, this truffle contains Dragons Fruit. Açai, Goji Berries, Match Green Tea, and Cacao. Each of these ingredients s is packed full of beneficial properties.
