Plant-based chocolate is chocolate that is made without using any animal-derived ingredients.Traditional chocolate contains dairy products such as milk powder and may also include other non-vegan ingredients. Plant-based chocolate, on the other hand, is produced without the use of dairy or other animal products.
Plant-based chocolate is typically made by substituting dairy with plant-based alternatives like almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, or other non-dairy ingredients. Cocoa solids, cocoa butter, and sweeteners like sugar or sugar alternatives are still used to create the chocolate.
This type of chocolate is suitable for individuals who follow vegan or lactose-free diets, as well as those who are concerned about animal welfare or the environmental impact of dairy production.
It's clear that in the last five years, the number of patents related to plant-based chocolates has surged dramatically, reshaping the chocolate landscape.
