Private-label firm Carmit Candy Industries will launch its new vegan line of milk chocolate snacks, coins and buttons at Natural Product Expo West from March 9 to 12, 2017 in California, US.
The products are free from lactose, dairy and gluten.
“Most vegan chocolate is dark chocolate, but Carmit’s chocolatiers have developed a ‘milk’ chocolate without dairy or milk,” says Adrian Sagman, VP of international sales and marketing.
The dairy-free chocolate line comprises white chocolate and standard light brown milk-style chocolate.
Both are available in a range of sizes and shapes for each target market.
Tablets are available in 85 and 100g, snack bars of 35g and buttons of 25g bags and coins in Netlons.
All products are available for private label branding and kosher certified.
“The real challenge in developing this vegan chocolate line was to mimic the taste and texture of creamy milk chocolate, without compromising on texture or flavor, or by using synthetic ingredients, dairy or milk,” adds Sagman.
“The Carmit R&D team used simple, clean and natural ingredients, testing a range of raw materials and ingredients, in different quantities, to achieve an authentic milk chocolate look & feel.”
