India gets its first vegan milk chocolate bars
The vegan food startup based in Gurgaon, India Piperleaf recently launched vegan milk chocolate products. The line includes vegan Mylk chocolate bars in three flavors: Mixed Seeds, Fruit & Nut and Classic. The chocolate is made from unrefined raw sugar, cocoa butter, hazelnut paste, cocoa mass, cashew nut paste and natural cocoa powder. Piperleaf also offers two dark chocolate bars.
“In general, there are so many options for vegan dark chocolates in the Indian market. However, it is very difficult to find a vegan Mylk chocolate because of which people are used to buying regular milk chocolates, ”Piperleaf founder Anshul Agarewal told VegNews. “That’s why we decided to take a small step towards introducing the vegan Mylk chocolate range together with dark pralines as our very first products.”
Piperleaf was founded in 2020 with the aim of developing and introducing vegan food products to enable consumers in India to make a smooth and easy transition from animal products. The startup hopes to bring other vegan products such as milk alternatives and plant-based proteins to the market.
