Soy free chocolate/Easter eggs

(8 Posts)

Hi all, Wonder if anyone can help or give me any pointers. I'm looking for soy free milk chocolate for Easter for my son , who's currently soy free as part of an intolerance screening. Almost all the chocolate I can find contains soya lecithin. I've seen some 70% cocoa dark chocolate without, but know he won't like it as it's quite bitter.
Has anyone got any experience or suggestions?

Try organic ones - would be fairly pure I'm sure. The local health food shop have Black and Green eggs - the organic Chocolate company

I live in NZ and we have already had 4 recalls for undeclared Soy Lecithin in Easter Eggs, about 30 different types. Even if it is not listed on the label, I wouldn't give any chocolate to him without double checking with the manufacturer first.

My son loves the dark stuff, but we have to pull him off the ceiling afterwards.

Thanks for your answers! I had no idea soy lecithin was in virtually all chocolate till I started looking! The Green and Black unfortunately does contain soy, but I have seen a Duchy Original plain choc that doesn't.
Fortunately I know he is not actually allergic to soy, but I'm trying to screen intolerance reactions one at a time.
Am off to local organic shop this am to check further options.

Sainsburys taste the difference chocolate doesn't - at least the dark stuff anyway. I haven't actually seen any eggs made out of it though
