Do you know the difference between milk, white and dark chocolate?

It is said that if you go to meet a girl, then you must gift her flowers and chocolates. Now since Valentine’s Day is also near, not only girls but boys will also gift and receive chocolates. Chocolate is such a thing that by eating it your mood gets cured. Who would have thought that chocolate made in 1500-1900 BC would become so popular today. You might be surprised to know this too, but at that time cocoa seeds were considered so valuable that they were used as currency.

Today their price starts from Rs 5, but it was not like that then. Today, new flavors have started appearing in chocolate itself. Now let’s talk about milk, white and dark chocolate, can you tell the difference between them? Before gifting your partner on Chocolate Day, if you know their difference then it will be easy for you to choose the option.

Milk chocolate is a solid chocolate made from milk that is prepared from cocoa solids. The proportions used to make it around the world are based on various government requirements, but usually contain at least 10% chocolate liqueur. Also there should be at least 12% milk solids and at least 25% cocoa solids. Cocoa butter, vanilla, milk fat and lecithin are also used.

Let us tell you that the first experiment with milk chocolate was done by the Germans. They developed the milk chocolate drink in the mid-1800s and the Swiss who created the first milk chocolate solids at the end of the same century using condensed milk.

What is dark chocolate made from?

Dark chocolate typically has a higher percentage of cocoa solids and can range from 30% to 80% in cocoa solids makeup. Because of this, it is fuller in true chocolate flavor and therefore has a drier and more chalky texture. The first time you taste it, you feel the bitterness, although later it gives a pleasant taste to the palette.

Dark chocolate also has more health benefits and it is believed that dark chocolate is rich in fiber and minerals. It is a potent source of antioxidants and may improve blood flow and help lower blood pressure.

What is white chocolate made of?

White chocolate does not contain any cocoa solids. Instead, white chocolate is made from cocoa butter. It is a pale yellow edible vegetable fat, with the aroma and taste of cocoa. Cocoa butter doesn’t have a great flavor on its own, so milk, sugar, and sometimes vanilla are sometimes added to it to give a sweet and creamy product.

Yes, if you have ever bought chocolate with more white and less ivory color, then keep in mind that the amount of vegetable oil may be more in it. Not only this, it can also contain artificial food colors .

Not everyone can eat dark chocolate, but it has more health benefits. It contains high amount of antioxidants, fiber, protein. Although it is high in calories, it should not be eaten excessively.
