Dairy-Free Chocolate

in Food Allergy, Milk & Egg
Published: September 3, 2010

Once upon a time, the only way you could get a chocolate bar free of dairy was to make it yourself! Companies are catching on that those with an allergy to dairy might still go for chocolate and we now have a few options.

Most companies had stopped shipping chocolate bars during the hot summer months as heat affected the quality of the product, but September’s here and so is production!

Enjoy Life makes both dark and milk (rice milk) chocolate bars to satisfy all taste buds! They also offer chocolate chips for the baking. All products are dairy- nut-, soy- and gluten-free.

Guardian Angel Foods sell the cutest chocolates from hearts, to zoo animals or dinosaurs! If you want fondue or baking chocolate, they offer that as well. They boast, “All of our delicious products are made without peanuts, nuts, eggs, sesame, bovine protein and dairy.”

Nonuttin’s Double Chocolate Chunk Granola bar is a granola bar that thinks it’s a chocolate bar (or is it the other way around?) Either way it’s sure to satisfy both your hunger and your sweet tooth! Again, this company offers 70 per cent dark chocolate chunks. All products are free of dairy, egg, peanut, fish, sesame, mustard, wheat, sulfite and gluten (certified by GFCO).

South of the border and shipping to Canada are:

Amanda’s Own offers dairy free, nut free and egg free chocolate in bars, shapes (from fancy foil wrapped to cars and puppies) as well as chips for baking.

Divvies offers both Devvine Chocolate and Chocolate Benjamint (with organic peppermint crunched up candies). Both are made in the company’s-own dedicated facility where no peanuts, tree nuts, milk or eggs enter the doors.

Premium Chocolatiers create the finest truffles and gourmet chocolates to indulge chocolate lovers including those with milk, nut, egg, and gluten sensitivities.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has been warning for some time now that imported chocolates are not always safe.
