Extra Dark Chocolate 70%

by - 12:31 AM

Lately, I am into Extra Dark Chocolate of up to 70% Cocoa solids. So I started with the city we live in now, I found this Estonian branded chocolate called 'Bitter' Kalev.

Cocoa mass, fat-reduced cocoa powder, sugar, cocoa butter, butter fat (milk), emulsifier (lecithin), vanillin. Cocoa solids: 70% minimum. May contain traces of nuts, peanuts, cereals containing gluten and egg products.

They wrote that "the high cocoa content Bitter 70% represents the best qualities of dark chocolate and is loved by everyone who prefers less sweet and slightly bitter chocolate." Before this, I actually tried the 87% on my first trial of dark chocolate. It was too bitter, but I find this 70% ones more tasty and I recommend (in fact!)

I've also learned along the way that there is a process called alkalization, also known as Dutching, has negative effects on the antioxidants in dark chocolate. So do read the labels. Do you know of any dark chocolate from your country that is a good brand? Which would you recommend
