Definitions for vegelate

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word vegelate.


  1. vegelate(Noun)

    A proposed term for chocolate containing vegetable fat (not a permitted ingredient in parts of the European Union).


  1. Vegelate

    The term vegelate is sometimes used pejoratively to describe chocolate that contains fats other than cocoa butter, the fat obtained from the cocoa bean. In some nations, including Denmark, Ireland, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, and the United Kingdom, some popular chocolate products contain a proportion of vegetable fat. Elsewhere, such fats are not used, and in some areas laws prohibited other fats from being used in chocolate products. In particular, the laws of some European Union members required the use of only cocoa butter. Chocolate manufacturers and others in those nations campaigned vigorously to maintain such prohibitions against "substandard" chocolate products of other nations, especially the UK. One facet of that campaign was that of claiming that chocolate that used any vegetable fat was not true chocolate and should not be permitted to use the unqualified name "chocolate". A variety of alternative names were proposed, but the French suggestion of "vegelate" was the most popular. Despite many stories in the British press, the word was never officially used by the EU nor was its mandatory use ever seriously considered.
