Nucao die vegane alternative weiße schokolade

Vegan white chocolate - is that possible?

Before we launched our nucao white bars, we asked ourselves the question: How can we make vegan white chocolate? Is that possible?

The answer is: no. By law, white chocolate cannot be vegan. In this article we explain why we still have a light-colored bar in our range, why nucao white is not really "white" and why there is actually no white chocolate.

What is white chocolate made of?

As with the dark chocolate version, the basic ingredient is cocoa. However, the Basic Food Ordinance stipulates that, in addition to cocoa mass, at least 14% milk solids and 3.5% milk fat must be included so that a chocolate can be called “white”.

💡 Vegan white chocolate does not exist by definition.

Does white chocolate even contain “real” cocoa?

Most people associate dark sweets with cocoa. Without cocoa, however, the sweet dream should not be called "chocolate" - not even white chocolate. Unlike dark chocolate, white chocolate is made with cocoa butter.

Cocoa butter is formed when cocoa beans are pressed and is milky white. Therefore, the white variant also has its classic light color. Learned something again.

Ingredients for vegan white choc

We already said at the beginning that white chocolate actually has to contain milk powder so that it can be called that. In this article, we'll stick with the term "white chocolate" because "white/light candy with cocoa butter and chocolate-like flavor" just doesn't read that well.

However, please keep in mind that it is not legally white chocolate as long as it does not contain cow's milk.

In many recipes, the cow's milk powder is replaced with rice, oat or another vegan milk alternative; the sweet sin is tastefully supplemented with lots of sugar and fruit or vanilla.

At nucao we have taken a different approach and rely on a few, natural ingredients with a high nutritional value. The ingredients for our nucao white Raspberry Crisp are for example:

  • cocoa butter
  • Tigernut Flour
  • hemp seeds
  • Almond butter
  • dried coconut blossom nectar
  • raspberry semolina
  • almonds

Which vegan white chocolate is the best?

We'll admit it: we're biased about that.

For us, nucao white Raspberry Crisp is the clear test winner - but Crunchy Nougat is also really good :) You should definitely try both varieties and form your own conclusion. We look forward to your feedback.
