Lactose-Free Chocolate!

Updated August 27, 2007
A Quick Word
 
You should already know that most dark (or bittersweet, or semisweet) chocolate is normally milkfree. (Cheaper brands often include milkfat as an ingredient. This contains no lactose, but those who need to avoid dairy for other reasons, including those anaphylactic to dairy proteins, will want to avoid these brands. Fortunately there are many brands of excellent chocolate, domestic and imported, and vegan and kosher brands that have no milkfat or dairy of any kind.) For those who want even more assurance, here are sites that sell non-dairy (usually kosher pareve or vegan) chocolate of every possible sort and type.

Pareve foods must be completely free of any and all dairy products, and so must vegan foods.

Have delicious fun.

    The Usual Disclaimer: I'm just passing along some information here. I haven't actually ordered anything from any of these sites. They sound good, but lots of things sound better on the Web than they actually are. So approach them with the usual amount of caution. OK? Then surf away.

    Sites are listed in alphabetical order.

Chocolate Decadence
http://www.chocolatedecadence.com/
 
The good folks over at Chocolate Decadence sent me this press release:
 
"Five years ago, two chocolate-loving friends, one a dedicated vegetarian, the other allergic to dairy, were unable to get really good-tasting chocolate they would be willing to eat. They decided to do something about their problem. They decided to make their own.
 
"After much research and experimentation, they came up with a really delicious chocolate with no dairy. Realizing that there were a lot of other people in the world like them, they decided to form a company to market and distribute their dairy-free chocolate. They named the company Chocolate Decadence, and it has grown each year ever since."
 
Their site lists many, many varieties of chocolates, even chocolate dinosaurs for kids of all ages, as well as brownies and truffles. They say their chocolate are: "Dairy-Free ~ Lactose Free ~ Casein Free ~ Gluten Free ~ Vegan"

Scharffen Berger
www.scharffenberger.com
 
Scharffen makes a line of high-end chocolates that are completely dairy-free.

 
From their FAQs:
    We cannot guarantee that all of our products are completely nut and dairy free. Our manufacturing facility is completely free of nuts and dairy. However, some of our products are wrapped off-site. The machinery used to wrap our products is also used to wrap other products which contain nuts/dairy. While these machines are cleaned before our products are wrapped, we cannot guarantee that there will not be a trace amount of nuts/dairy in our product.

    These products include our 1 oz. and 3 oz. bars, Bittersweet Chocolate Chunks, and Cacao Nibs.

    If food allergies are a concern, we encourage you purchase the 9.7 oz Home Chef Bar or a larger size. These bars are made and wrapped in house, and therefore are 100% nut & dairy free. Additionally, our cocoa powder is nut & dairy free.

 
They use refined sugar so the decision as to whether they are vegan is yours.
