Belcolade’s new plant-based, milk-like chocolate wins praise

Chocolate experts at Belcolade have “solved the puzzle” of milk-alike plant-based chocolate. Their latest innovation, Belcolade Selection M. Plant-Based Cacao-Trace, has been hailed as “the best chocolate in the plant-based market,” winning praise from industry experts and customers despite being launched less than two months ago.

This is the industry’s first chocolate that offers an indulgent taste profile and mouthfeel similar to milk chocolate while being both dairy-free and nut-free, according to Belcolade, the flagship chocolate brand from Puratos. A unique patent-pending product, it achieves superb smoothness, the creaminess of a milk chocolate and balanced sweetness, all without common allergens. Uniquely, Belcolade Selection M. Plant-Based Cacao-Trace is a real Belgian chocolate, thanks to being manufactured at the Belcolade factory in Erembodegem. It is commercially available now.

Customers seeking plant-based “milk” chocolate inspiration can join live webinars being held on 12 January at 10 am CET or 4 pm CET (Brussels/Paris). Belcolade’s chocolate expert Michel Eyckerman will create two exceptional confectionery and patisserie recipes based on Belcolade Selection M. Plant-Based Cacao-Trace, and answer viewers’ questions.
