What does real chocolate taste and look like?
When it comes to chocolate nothing beats the true taste of quality. From that melt in your mouth moment of pure bliss, you can taste the indulgence. Chocolate by definition can be a tough cookie, but you can usually tell the real thing from the fake not only by taste, touch and scent but also by checking the packaging.
Chocolate by Definition
The FDA has set out chocolate standards of identity to ensure you know exactly what kind of chocolate you are enjoying. Real chocolate is made with cocoa butter.
How can you tell the difference between real and fake chocolate?
Faux chocolate will use some clever word play on the packaging; if you are looking for the real thing and you come across terms like chocolate flavor or made with chocolate then odds are, that by definition you are not buying real chocolate. Chocolate that has been created with any other source of fat than cocoa butter and milk is not classed as the real thing.
High Quality Chocolate
Couverture chocolate takes the silky taste one step further by ensuring a high quantity of cocoa butter, fragrant cocoa solids and a hint of vanilla. Together the cocoa butter and solids should make up at least 54% of the ingredients to be considered authentic couverture chocolate. The end result will usually be glossy, rich, and creamy with a delectable snap when broken. This is the choice chocolate used by professionals.
