You Ask, I Answer: Cocoa Butter

Posted Nov 13 2009 10:01pm

I recently went vegan.

The other day I was reading chocolate bars’ ingredient labels and didn’t know if cocoa butter was an animal by-product or not.

Can you help?

Sure!

Cocoa butter is 100 percent vegan — it is a purely vegetable-based fat naturally found in cocoa beans.

Vegan chocolate is very easy to come by — a lot of the big drugstores, like Walgreen’s, carry it!

To make sure it is completely dairy-free, be on the lookout for milk solids and/or whey-based ingredients.

By the way, one of my favorite brands of vegan chocolate — actually, one of my favorite brands of ALL chocolate — is Endangered Species (pictured alongside this post.)
