Nestlé’s new vegan KitKat has arrived in Sainsbury’s stores in the UK. The bar, made with a rice-based alternative to milk, was developed by chocolatiers and food scientists in Nestlé’s Research and Development centre in York.
Louise Barrett, Head of the Nestlé Confectionery Product Technology Centre said: “Our challenge when we set out to create a vegan-friendly KitKat was to recreate this iconic product using plant-based alternatives. To achieve this, we worked very hard to get the right balance between the milk alternative and the cocoa. The result is a vegan chocolate that we’re very proud of, and that we hope will be enjoyed by KitKat fans everywhere.”
