List: Chocolate Bars Without Cane Sugar

Several people have e-mailed us with requests for finding chocolate that is made on equipment without any exposure to nuts, lower glycemic chocolate that is sweetened with something other than sugar, chocolate without lecithin, and other criteria. I've answered those questions individually, but now I'll begin posting and maintaining such information on the site as well.

This posting is the first of them, listing chocolate bars that are made either without a sweetener or with a sweetener that is something other than cane sugar.

Chocolate Bars Without Cane Sugar (sweetener)

Please see our permanent Chocolate Lists page (link at upper right) for current information.


  1. Hi Richard,

    I thought I'd point out for your readers that, while it's true that chocolate sweetened with agave is lower glycemic than chocolate sweetened with sugar, it's also important to note that agave is exceptionally high in fructose. The latest nutritional thinking is that the primary culprit in sugar is its fructose component -- see the famous "Sugar, the Bitter Truth" YouTube video by Dr Lustig. So calorie-for-calorie, agave is probably worse than sugar in terms of overall health.


  2. Not only can you make all your chocolate recipes healthier at a stroke, but you will also make delicious chocolaty recipes too, using gourmet quality chocolate.

  3. I have a friend who really loves chocolate, but has intolerance to Cane and Beet sugars, so she basically can't have any chocolate. This is a great list!

  4. Endangered species dark chocolate now uses cane sugar. They no longer use the beet sugar!

  5. Thank you for the information about Endangered Species reformulating their chocolate bars. I've updated the post above, as well as the associated individual chocolate bar reviews. Thanks again!

  6. Great thanks for sharing this post. I was looking for something like this. Your post have inspires me a lot.Thanks
