Lactose Free and Dairy Free Chocolate – Yes, they exist!

By | December 10, 2015

I am a great lover of chocolate and even when I discovered I was lactose intolerant I could not resist indulging in chocolate. But over time, due to uncontrollable pain, I gave it up. The worse is when receiving   chocolate as gift for graduation or a birthday, as I could not enjoy these delicacies. My family members would when this would happen because they would end up eating them all.


Lactose free and dairy free chocolate do exist. If you going on a date, buying a birthday gift or simply saying thank you to a friend, family member or loved one that is lactose intolerant, your solution is right here.



  1. Dark Chocolate can be suitable for Lactose Intolerance:

Since milk chocolate is out of the question, dark chocolate may be suitable for individuals suffering from lactose intolerance. Believe it or not, chocolate it is purest form contains no milk, thus dark chocolate has minimal to low amounts of lactose. Additionally, dark chocolate is quite healthy. It provides flavonoids, antioxidants, prevents heart disease, lowers cholesterol and prevents cancer.

NB: Lactose intolerant individuals should consume in moderation or in small quantities as sometimes there will be small amounts of lactose. Always read the ingredients to determine if it is safe for consumption (watch for 75% cocoa solids).

    The amount of people, who suffer from IBS and have issues with lactose intolerance seems to be on the rise.

    This was a very informative post because milk and dairy seem to form a major part of most of our lives in the western world.

    Strange considering our parents aren’t cows.

    Chocolate is a comfort food that many people can’t do without and educating them on the merits of eating lactose-free chocolate will prove to be extremely helpful.

    Really enjoyed reading this post.

    Great post. I love chocolate but have an intolerance to casein so I am not able to eat “normal” chocolate. I didn’t know that there is a chocolate which is dairy free. This something new to me. I will try out those chocolates that you recommended. Thank you for this post.

    Yummy post!

    Great idea for the lactose intolerant to have lactose free chocolate. So many people are affected nowadays, but nobody wants to give up chocolate.

    I love dark chocolate, and although I have always known it to be the healthier choice, it is good to know that there is less milk in there. I learn’t something new today.

    Hi Uwais,

    Great article, I really enjoyed reading it as I am a big fan of dark chocolate since I was born:) The only chocolate I eat is 100% percent chocolate free lactose and sugar, I usually eat it with dry fruits like figs, dates, it is very healthy and delicious!
    Thank you very much for this awesome blog

    Great subject! Personally, I am not lactose intolerant but I do know a good friend who is. And, she is miserable without her chocolates. I am going to bookmark this site and bring her to this, she will be very happy I did.
    How long have you been lactose intolerant before you knew what to do?
    Thank you!

      Am lactose intolerant for 7 years, it took me two years to learn the ins and outs, well am still learning on a daily basis about it.

    Wow I didn’t know there were so many options. I’m vegan so I can’t eat normal milk chocolate and as a girl that can be a huge inconvenience. I love dark chocolate and try and get it whenever I can. I still crave chocolate daily, but having other options is always awesome.

    Hi! Enjoyed reading your post, very useful and informative. I have lactose intolerance and I love chocolates, cakes and ice cream. I know there are lactose free cookies but I never really liked them. But the ones you posted seem good and are available in Amazon. I may just have to try them. And I am also not a fan of dark chocolates. I know they are healthy than the regular ones. I may just have to educate myself to start eating them. Great post.
