Typically only a consideration when choosing dark chocolate. Everybody's taste varies and this is actually due to your palate detecting sweetness and bitterness differently. To most tastes, 70% cocoa content is the tipping point at which chocolate becomes bitter rather than bitter-sweet and whilst 70% is commonly called upon in many recipes it is more often the case that below 70% is better suited to most people so our Raspberry Crisp Dark Chocolate at 72%, Organic Dark Chocolate 58% all work well to bake with according to your taste. All have been used in cooking in various ways. Also the usage often dictates the cocoa percentage commonly used. For example; chocolate chips cookies or brownies are typically sweeter whilst a rolled chocolate truffle often is relatively more bitter. However that if you are unsure what cocoa percentage to buy you can always add more sugar to the melted chocolate or recipe, to suit your taste, but you can't take away. Also the higher the cocoa content the better the chocolate will be for your waist and even heart. The quality of chocolate is also not determined by the cocoa content - a common misconception. We handcraft all our Gnaw chocolate at our base in Norfolk UK and some of our dark chocolate bars are suitable for vegans too including our Organic Dark Chocolate 58%.
Milk chocolate is classically made from dark chocolate of low cocoa solid content and a higher sugar content plus a milk product, which may be in the form of boiled milk, milk powder or condensed milk. All of these give variations of a much admired slight caramel taste.Milk Chocolate has reputation for being for children, but it is enjoyed my adults across the world.
