Vegan Chocolate

Organic Vegan Chocolates: Mix 16oz Santa Barbara Dark Chocolate without soy with 5oz Coconut Cream and 2oz Agave Syrup. Without overheating, melt ingredients together until no un-melted pieces are visible. Chill overnight. Spoon truffle balls and dust with red cocoa powder or dip in tempered Santa Barbara Dark Chocolate 72% couverture. Our bittersweet chocolate is recognized as a true vegan chocolate. This means we do not add milk ingredients and we only use vegan cane sugar. Most sugar is filtered through bone char while we use only sugar production with organic standards and Kosher oversight. This is why we are one of the only chocolate brands that can say our bittersweet chocolate is certified Kosher, organic and recognized as a real vegan chocolate by several news publications. We follow the health food store guidelines (there is no FDA ruling on vegan chocolate). We make sure only quality ingredients are used and we clean all production lines between manufacturing.

As a chocolate brand based in California we have found if the quality is high and there is no difference in flavor, everyone prefers vegan chocolate.  Additionally we feel vegan ingredients have less of an environmental footprint and therefore do not have a negative impact on climate. Additionally this type of healthy chocolate is better for cacao sustainability and animal health and well being.

Bittersweet Chocolate

The difference between bittersweet chocolate and semisweet chocolate is interesting once you learn the technicalities. In definition there is no difference between bittersweet chocolate and semisweet chocolate under FDA law. However in most everyone's mind there is a difference between these descriptions. Most would say Bittersweet chocolate is darker tasting and with higher cocoa solids than a semisweet chocolate. In the realm of the chocolatier we also think of bittersweet being different than semisweet in the same way everyone else does. But according to the FDA: "Semisweet chocolate or bittersweet chocolate is sweet chocolate that contains not less than 35 percent by weight of chocolate liquor complying with the requirements of 163.111 and calculated in the same manner as set forth in paragraph (a)(2) of this section." Source: FDA Chocolate 

As chocolatiers running a chocolate factory we think of bittersweet chocolate being chocolates around the 72% cacao solids mark. The semisweet chocolates we think of being more like baking chips you'd use in a bakery recipe for vegan chocolate chip cookies or in making a chocolate sauce. So when we reference bittersweet chocolate on our website we are following the FDA law but also adding the extra metric we think makes sense that the chocolate should be more of an extra dark chocolate where the first ingredient is pure cacao like chocolate liquor (aka unsweetened chocolate, cocoa mass, chocolate etc). Some chocolate companies will have sugar as their first ingredient - we do not. Our bittersweet chocolates have cacao as the first ingredient (unsweetened organic chocolate which is ground cacao).

Chocolate California Style: Organic Chocolate made in USA.

    WOW - if you love dark chocolate - you have to try this chocolate.

    I was looking for for dark chocolate without soy. It's not that easy to find!. I found Santa Barbara Chocolate through a Google search. I had a few questions & they answered all emails within a few hours. I ordered a 3 pound bag. FYI - the chocolate discs are the same size as a quarter. 12 of them equals about 1 ounce. Great flavor and texture. Just 3 ingredients. We have some every day. And a bonus - it's organic. Very quick shipping. Try it.

    The 72% is delicious, so glad to have found a fair-trade chocolate company. The only problem I have, though it doesn’t deserve subtracting a star, is that I didn’t know I was buying tiny chocolate morsels; I thought the pieces were more medallion-sized. Hoping I can get a bigger size on the re-order. The chocolate is silken and melts beautifully. Can’t go wrong.
