What does the percentage mean?
The higher the percentage, the more bitter the chocolate. That’s why unsweetened chocolate, a.k.a. bitter chocolate, which contains 100 percent cocoa bean product, is only suitable for baking. Semisweet chocolate has at least 35 percent cacao, but usually around 55 percent, with added sugar, but no dairy. Milk chocolate only has to have 10 percent cacao at minimum and 12 percent milk solids. This gives it a creamy, rich taste, but all the added sugar makes it much sweeter too.

Cocoa Challenging Violence

Feeling inspired and empowered by this documentary. It’s a brave and honest piece that gives a voice to all Colombians that keep working the Land, despite all the horrors that, for generations, the war has carved in their memory. Recommended to all of you that keep doing what you love, because you haven’t stopped believing in a better tomorrow.

via Aberfeldy Distillery on Twitter: “All our chocolate is #ethicallysourced but we really love the story of our Virunga 70% which preserves the habitat of endangered mountain gorillas, by planting a tree for every bar sold. Check out the @virungamovie documentary #homeofdewars #itsdramtime #teamvirunga… https://t.co/4JfWXAt8R3”
