What Is Dark Chocolate?
Lindt Excellence Dark Chocolate, 70% Cocoa is a type of chocolate that's made without any added milk solids. This results in a more pronounced chocolate taste due to the dark chocolate not containing any milk solids to compete with the chocolate flavor. The lack of milk additives results in a bar of chocolate that better preserves the natural, slightly bitter taste of the cocoa used to make the dark chocolate.
What Are Cocoa Percentages?
This Lindt dark chocolate is made up of 70% cocoa, but what does that tell you? The percentage of cocoa solids in a bar is what distinguishes one dark chocolate from the next. The cocoa content of dark chocolate bars typically ranges from 30% (sweet dark) to upwards of 80% cocoa (extremely dark). The common terms you'll see to distinguish different bars of dark chocolate often include bittersweet, semi-sweet and sweet. The majority of dark chocolate bars you'll see in shops, stores and retail websites typically ranges from 50% to 70% cocoa. The higher the cocoa percentage, the less sugar was used to sweeten the chocolate bar. This means a chocolate bar with 80% cocoa will be less sweet than a bar of chocolate with a cocoa percentage of 70%. In turn, this means a higher percentage will also imply a richer, more powerful chocolate flavor. Therefore, Lindt Excellence 70% Dark Chocolate will have a more intense chocolate flavor than a chocolate bar comprised of 50% cocoa but will also have less sugar than the 50% cocoa chocolate bar.
