What makes chocolate vegetarian?
Chocolate in its basic form is inherently vegetarian since it's derived from the cocoa plant. However, the distinction between vegetarian and non-vegetarian chocolates comes into play when we consider the additives and processing agents involved. Here's what generally makes a chocolate vegetarian:
No Gelatin: Gelatin, often used in candies and some fillings, is derived from animal bones and is not vegetarian. Vegetarian chocolates ensure that no gelatin or any other animal-derived ingredients are used.
Dairy Considerations: While dairy is permissible in a vegetarian diet (making it different from a vegan diet), some vegetarians choose chocolates with ethically sourced or organic dairy to ensure the humane treatment of animals.
No Insect-Derived Additives: Shellac, sometimes used as a confectionery glaze, is derived from the secretions of the female lac insect. Vegetarian chocolates don't use shellac or any similar insect-derived ingredients.
No Animal-Based Colorings: Some food colorings, like carmine or cochineal extract, which is used for red and pink hues, are derived from insects. Vegetarian chocolates avoid such colorings.
Ethical Sourcing: Beyond just the ingredients, many people who choose vegetarian chocolates are also concerned with ethical sourcing, ensuring that the cocoa was harvested without exploiting labourers or causing environmental damage.
Avoidance of Cross-Contamination: Some strict vegetarians also look for assurances that their chocolate hasn't been made on equipment shared with non-vegetarian products, to avoid cross-contamination.
