World Chocolate Day 2022: Types Of Chocolate
Milk Chocolate: Milk chocolate, which is creamy and sweet, has a minimum of 10% chocolate liquor and 12% milk, which gives it both its name and its melt-in-your-mouth quality. Because it has more sugar and dairy than dark chocolate, it is often sweeter and less bitter.
Dark Chocolate: Any dark chocolate that is between 65 and 70 percent will be mildly creamy and bitter, while anything that is 80 percent or higher would be too brittle and bitter to savour.
Unsweetened Chocolate: Bakers' chocolate, often known as unsweetened chocolate, is essentially just cocoa butter and solid cocoa, free of any dairy or sugar.
White Chocolate: White chocolate is generally not considered chocolate. But it contains plenty of cocoa butter—at least 20 percent, according to the FDA.
Caramelized White Chocolate: Caramelized white chocolate, sometimes referred to as toasted white chocolate or blond chocolate, is simply white chocolate that has been roasted till it turns sweet. The outcome is creamy white chocolate with a flavour akin to caramel that is less sweet than typical white chocolate.
Ruby Chocolate: It was only created in 2017 by the cocoa business Barry Callebaut, and it is a highly popular millennial pink. Surprisingly, the "ruby cocoa beans" used to manufacture it are what give it its natural colour. The flavour is similar to berries in chocolate form—slightly sour and sweet.
Raw Chocolate: Unroasted cocoa beans are used to make raw chocolate, which the maker claims maintains the minerals and antioxidants.
