Ruby Cacao Couverture, often referred to as pink chocolate, is made from special ruby cacao beans that are sustainably grown in the Brazilian and Ecuadorian rainforests.
Ruby is often referred to as the fourth chocolate since it is so different from traditional dark, milk, and white chocolates. It is known for its unique pink color and natural fruity flavor. Ruby Couverture's unique characteristics come from:
Ruby Cacao Beans: Not only do they have a tropical flavor, these beans have a naturally occurring pink or reddish hue similar to a ruby gemstone. Ruby cacao beans grow in several regions of the world including Ecuador and Brazil.
Minimal Processing: Ruby Couverture is made using a minimal processing approach that preserves natural cacao flavors and the unique ruby color.
Pink Color: Ruby chocolate's exceptional color naturally comes from the ruby cacao beans themselves.
Fruity Flavor Profile: Is often described as having notes of red berries and tropical fruit with abundant chocolate.
A must have for the chocolatier's repertoire. Have fun with it!
