Dairy-Free Chocolate Ingredients
Fair Trade Chocolate
Making socially responsible buying choices is also crucial to our chocolate mission. We are committed to buying only fairly traded cacao and sugar, and use almost all organic ingredients. Fair-trade cocoa and fair-trade sugar, direct-trade cacao beans, and as organic as possible all the way around!
We only use the very best stuff in the making of our artisan chocolate. Here is some info about our special ingredients:
Cacao is the heart of chocolate. We use fair-trade and organic Peruvian cacao.
We use only organic and fair-trade cocoa butter. Natural cocoa butter has a subtle and lovely aroma that adds character to our chocolate creations. Many competitors in this industry cut costs by using inferior fats to replace some of the cocoa butter. We never do this. Flavor and quality are our top priorities. Making the very best vegan milk chocolate is serious business.
Organic and fair-trade evaporated cane juice. Blonde and beautiful.
The Schmilky Component
Milk chocolate is typically made with the addition of dairy milk powder. This is what makes it mellow and milky. (Liquid milk will not mix well with the other ingredients.) As long as one is making chocolate from scratch, it is no problem to use another sort of dried milk. Vegan milk chocolate is born!
We use a delicious and wholesome blend of macadamia and organic soy milk.
We also use organic vanilla, sunflower lecithin (to perfect the mouthfeel), and wholesome toasted nuts and cherries. The use of sunflower lecithin allows us to make soy-free dark chocolate. Now that certified sustainable palm oil is available, we use it to make our peanut butter logs even more delicious than before.
All of our artisan chocolate bars are made with our own gluten-free chocolate.
