If you think to keep in the know on all things plant-based and all things chocolate, then you might be wondering if pale-pink ruby chocolate is vegan-friendly. Keep reading to find out more. 

What is ruby chocolate? 

Ruby chocolate is a relatively new kid on the confectionary block. It officially joined the scene in 2017 but had been under development by Belgian chocolatiers since the early 2000s. 


Its been dubbed as the fourth kind of chocolate, after dark, milk and white and has a distinctive natural pink colour as well as a slightly sweet and sour taste from ruby cocoa beans. 

Is ruby chocolate vegan?

No, currently ruby chocolate is not vegan – this is because it has been created and patented by Belgian company Callebaut, who use dairy-based milk to produce the confectionary. There’s currently no recipe to available for anyone to veganise, but hopefully, in the not too distant future, we’ll all get to try the pink stuff.

What types of chocolate are vegan-friendly?

It’s a common misconception that vegans can’t eat chocolate! There are plenty of great-tasting plant-based chocolates on the market that either use plant milk (instead of dairy) or no milk at all!
