What is a vegan chocolate?
Veganism is a lifestyle choice that consists of abstaining from the use or consumption of any animal products. This obviously requires an appropriate diet: milk, cheese, butter, meat, eggs, etc. are all prohibited. This can also often mean that many desserts are off-limits, as many of these animal-based ingredients are used on a very wide scale. A vegan chocolate therefore has its own recipe which does not include everything of animal origin in its composition.
Where can I buy genuine vegan chocolate?
Vegan specialty stores and most organic brands offer vegan chocolate. You can also find them in some supermarkets, however this often requires checking the long list of ingredients. To be sure to meet your needs and expectations in terms of value, zChocolat offers you its selection of chocolate products certified "100% Vegan".

What is the difference between a vegan chocolate and a classic chocolate?
Classic chocolate does not have the requirements of vegan and can therefore be made up of many of the more classic, animal-based ingredients found in sweet foods. Often, industrially made chocolate contains palm oil or synthetic flavours to keep costs down, as well as the common addition of milk, egg and butter…
Not only are Z vegan chocolates handcrafted by French chocolatiers and do not contain any of the low-end ingredients listed above, but they also perfectly meet the values of veganism by excluding everything that comes from the animal in the creation of our recipes on this section.

Discover more about vegan (origins)
To be a vegan is to refuse animal exploitation. This implies not consuming animal flesh, dairy products, eggs, honey or hive products, not wearing clothing made from raw materials derived from animals (fur, leather, wool, silk, etc.), not using hygiene products, skincare or makeup that has been tested on animals.
Veganism, which takes the form of reduced demand for products involving animals, is much more than a lifestyle; it is a commitment to the abolition of all forms of animal exploitation.
This English term was coined in 1944, from the word vegetarian (VEG-etari-AN), in order to distinguish itself from ovo-lacto-vegetarianism, by Donald Watson, co-founder of the Vegan Society. As early as 1951, the latter defined veganism as living without exploiting animals. In English, vegan refers to both diet and lifestyle (we speak of dietary vegan and ethical vegan).
Veganism has developed naturally in all countries of the world. Its values are shared by people of all ages, cultures and social classes. Vegans are often opposed to the idea that this way of life is reserved for an elite group. This is a false image because foods such as lentils and tofu are much more economical sources of protein than meat and many vegans live in countries that do not have our standard of living. There are vegans all over the world, in Europe of course and all over the American continent, but also in Africa, India, Asia and especially China where there are already 50 million vegetarians and vegans. The number of vegans in the United States is estimated to have doubled between 2009 and 2011 and will rise again to over 7.5 million. In France between 2 and 3% of the population, or roughly one million consider themselves either vegetarian or vegan. A smaller proportion than our European neighbours: United Kingdom: 7 to 11% of the population (4 million - largely because of the Indian population), Germany, 9% of the population (7 to 8 million) are vegetarians and a little more than 10% of those are practice veganism.
What do Vegans eat?
Vegans do not eat meat, fish, shellfish, dairy products, eggs or honey... In summary, no animal products whatsoever. Nor will the vegan consume leather, wool, cosmetics tested on animals or with ingredients of animal origin.
Included in the list of things not consumed by vegans is cheese: Parmesan, grated, pizza cheese, edam, mozzarella, blue, cheese spread (with herbs, nuts), cheddar, slices (mushrooms, pizza taste...), ricotta, fondue.
Some ideas in bulk: Soup (with vegetables, without cream), fruit smoothies made with nut milk, soy steaks, cereal steaks, pasta (without eggs), tomato sauces, vegetable pies, spreads (tapenade without anchovies), soy, rice and nut-milk yoghurt, spices, soy cream, rice or spelt, vegan butter, soy chantilly, spreads and milks made from soya, almonds, coconut, oats and rice, dried and fresh fruit, nuts, dairy-free chocolate and ice cream, egg substitutes...
Why become vegan?
In farms, many animals are crammed into overcrowded sheds. By forcibly separating animals, crowding them or locking them in cages, these farms deprive animals of emotional ties and expose them to psychological and physical suffering. Essential activities such as scraping the earth, playing, running, jumping and exploring are simply impossible on many farms and often, the animals are deprived of daylight.
For the environment
Changing your lifestyle and diet to vegan could significantly reduce your carbon footprint.
What we eat has direct consequences for the climate and the environment. Vegetating our food acts effectively against climate change, reduces pollution and deforestation and helps to preserve our planet.
Humans also suffer from the consequences of livestock farming, but this is not inevitable:
A very large number of arable lands are used for the sole purpose of feeding livestock, while 800 million humans suffer from malnutrition. The breeding and consumption of meat products thus feed the waste of resources, monopolized by some to the detriment of others.
In another area, most occupations related to farming or fishing are difficult jobs: livestock farmers are forced to work 365 days a year, slaughterhouse workers and fishermen also have very difficult working conditions.
A balanced vegan diet is good for your health and is suitable for all ages of life.
Dried beans and chickpeas, nuts and almonds, cereals, vegetables and fruit provide abundant protein, fibre, carbohydrates, fat, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants; all elements that strengthen our immune system and have a positive impact on our health.
