FAQ about sugar-free chocolate
Is sugar-free chocolate vegan?
Not all sugar-free chocolates are automatically vegan, as this depends on the ingredients used. Sugar-free chocolate can use various sweeteners, such as sugar substitutes such as stevia, erythritol or xylitol. These are usually vegan. However, sugar-free chocolates may also contain other ingredients that are not vegan, such as milk powder or animal fats.
It's therefore important to check the ingredient list on the packaging or look for chocolates specifically labeled "vegan" to ensure they are vegan.

Is sugar-free chocolate really sugar-free?
Sugar-free chocolate generally does not contain any refined table sugar (sucrose). Instead, alternative sweeteners are used to reduce or replace sugar content. However, these sweeteners may have different effects on blood sugar levels and have different calorie values. It's important to note that sugar-free chocolate still contains carbohydrates, as cocoa and other ingredients naturally contain carbohydrates. Therefore, the term "sugar-free" may refer to the addition of refined sugar, but it does not mean that the chocolate is completely free of carbohydrates or calories. It is advisable to check the nutritional information and ingredients list on the packaging for accurate information about the sugar content and sweeteners contained.
Is sugar-free chocolate suitable for diabetics?
Sugar-free chocolate can be an option for diabetics because it does not contain refined table sugar. However, diabetics still need to consider total carbohydrate content and keep an eye on their blood sugar levels. Alternative sweeteners such as stevia, erythritol or xylitol can be used to reduce or replace sugar content. It is advisable to speak to a doctor or nutritionist to determine whether and to what extent sugar-free chocolate fits into a diabetic's diet. It is also important to check the specific chocolate's nutritional information and ingredients list to know the exact carbohydrate content.
