KEY:

The extra markings on this list are incomplete. We have marked regarding the info we have found out. We have not fully investigated every brand on our soy lecithin-free list.

(ft) = Fair trade. Cross referenced with Slave Free Chocolate: Coalition to End Child Slavery on West African Cocoa Farms’ Directory of Ethical Chocolate Companies and knowledge of companies not on their list. Also note that, generally, if the chocolate is organic, has a fair trade label or the  cocoa is listed as being sourced from anywhere other than Ghana or The  Ivory Coast then it’s slave free. http://slavefreechocolate.org/directory-chocolate/

 (v) = vegan product or brand line includes vegan (non-dairy) itemsMost all of the dark chocolates on the list will be vegan. I marked only the ones I know offhand. Please check the unmarked brands yourself.  If you comment below with info you find out, I will update it here. Thank you!  ~Liz

(r) = raw   

* = non-GMO

Note that some of these brands may contain other genetically modified (GM) ingredients. Next to soy lecithin, the most problematic ingredient in chocolate is the sugar.  If it is not specified as cane, it likely contains GM beet sugar.  Then, if it is a milk chocolate (or dark with added dairy ingredients) and the milk is not organic, it is likely from cows fed GMOs and maybe given GM growth hormones. The majority of brands listed here are likely 100% non-GMO. Feel free to ask about a specific product if you are unsure.  If it’s organic, it should be non-GMO.  I’ll * the brands that I know are entirely non-GMO. There may very well be others that I’m just not yet familiar enough with to guarantee so. For products from those lines, I’ll need to read the ingredient list.    ~Liz

RE: Organic – Many of the above brands are either organic or have organic varieties. We have not indexed the listings for organic or not. If it is organic, it is likely fairly traded as well.
