Vegan Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate is most frequently used in vegan baking because it is easily available and the best chocolate option with a wide range of applications. Moreover, as many studies show (source 1,source 2,source 3,source 4), it combines a lot of potential health benefits. Some possibilities could be:
It improves your mood and helps to prevent depression
It helps you protect your heart
It lowers your blood pressure
It enhances your protection against the sun
However, note that dark chocolate is not medicine so although it's very tasty and thought of as healthy, it shouldn't be treated as a medical substance!
In our offer, you can find, for example, vegan Belgian dark chocolate (also called The King of the Belgians) characterized by a smooth, delicious taste. It can work great for producing couverture, inserting them in cookies, and so on.
Vegan Milk Chocolate
Obviously, vegan milk chocolate doesn't have actual milk products in its composition. Instead, some plant-based alternatives can be used to achieve a very similar creamy taste in vegan chocolates.
At Santa Barbara Chocolate, we use a high-quality, smooth rice creamer that excellently imitates a rich milky flavor. Don't be afraid that a product with no dairy won't melt well - it proves as great as milk or dark chocolate when it comes to producing couverture, boxed chocolates, fondue, or other chocolate products.
With this kind of chocolate, you can attract clients who are vegan or lactose-intolerant but miss the sweet milky taste that dark chocolate can't provide.
Vegan White Chocolate
It is worth noting that white chocolate also has its vegan counterpart! The creamy flavor is again possible to achieve thanks to proper substitutes such as coconut milk powder.
The main ingredient of white chocolate is always cacao butter, and since it's a plant-based product, it can be used in the vegan option as well.
At Santa Barbara Chocolate, we have cacao butter sold both in the form of chips and blocks, so you can choose which one you prefer.
Vegan Chocolate Chips
If you want to include no-dairy baked goods in your business, you will probably need a lot of vegan chocolate! Breaking every chocolate bar separately whenever you need it sounds time-consuming, so it's highly recommended to try out chocolate chips instead.
In our online store, you'll find various kinds of vegan chocolate available in this form, making it possible to diversify your offer and address a wide range of clients with various preferences. It will give your business an additional boost that can turn out to be very beneficial!
