Food Chocolate for All Pascha is pure, delicious, and safe for those with food allergies PASCHA Chocolate was born from a desire to create the simplest, purest, and most delicious chocolate without any of the additives or ingredients for those with food allergies or intolerances. When PASCHA Chocolate founder Simon Lester started his career in chocolate in England, nobody in the industry paid attention to the topic of food allergies. At that time, the focus of the chocolate industry was two-fold: finding innovative ways of experiencing chocolate through product and ingredient complexity and discovering new ways of reducing costs while not compromising taste. Fast forward to today: Simon now has two daughters with varying food allergies, some of them life-threatening if triggered. While the cause of the emerging trend of food allergies is unknown, there are no known cures other than avoidance. The best alternative is to find products that are made in an ultra-clean and simple way that systematically avoids all potential contact with specific allergens. Nobody thinks of chocolate as being a major source of food allergens, but if you read the label of most chocolate bars, you'll discover trace elements of many of the top eight allergens including peanuts, tree nuts, milk, soy, wheat, gluten, and even egg. The problem with these ingredients is that once they are in a chocolate facility, they are almost impossible to eliminate with any degree of certainty. This is why Simon created PASCHA – with a mission to make the purest, safest chocolate without any allergenic ingredients. Ironically, what he learned is very similar to his prior experience in the water business – the less you touch a food product, the more you let it take its natural form, and the purer and more delicious the taste. Simon's simple approach to chocolate results in pure and delicious chocolate that everyone can enjoy. PASCHA Chocolate is a rapidly emerging brand with a relentless focus on providing chocolate products that are non-GMO verified, USDA organic, UTZ (fair trade), vegan, kosher, paleo, and gluten-free certified. Their latest chocolate products to come to market are their rice milk products. These new chocolate products are dairy-free, vegan, and made with fair-trade chocolate. The rice milk baking chips come in two varieties: chocolate and white chocolate. The rice milk bars come in three varieties: 46% Cacao, 46% Cacao with Orange, and 48% Cacao White Bar. Like PASCHA's entire chocolate collection, their rice milk products are gluten-free and nut-free. PASCHA's ever-growing list of chocolate products are available in the Miami area. Stop by your local Whole Foods or The Fresh Market to pick some up. PASCHA Chocolate is available on Amazon, Vitacost,, and VeganEssentials. For more information on PASCHA Chocolate, visit or email
