Here’s Why Vegan Chocolate is Better!
First and foremost, vegan chocolate does not contain dairy, therefore your money is not funding the unethical and environmental problems associated with the dairy industry.
Vegan chocolate, depending on the brand, is made from plant-based mylks such as soy, oat, almond, coconut, cashew, hemp and more! Typically, vegan chocolate contains fewer ingredients than your typical mass-produced stuff on the supermarket shelves. These ingredients are often higher quality and sustainably sourced.
Vegan chocolate is not automatically ‘healthier’ than milk chocolate, but many of the ingredients are less processed and more wholesome - there’s usually less sugar, too! Vegan dark chocolate is surprisingly healthy; cacao, the primary ingredient, can actually help lower blood pressure, improve heart health and provide us with a boost of antioxidants.
