How to identify dark, white and milk chocolate?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How to identify dark, white and milk chocolate?       
How to identify dark, white and milk chocolate? Once I went to buy my favorite milk chocolate, I could not differentiate between dark, milk and white chocolate.

At that time I decided to know about their difference. This article will help us to know the basic difference.

White chocolate is not a pure chocolate. It is in fact derived from cocoa, butter and sugar without any cocoa liquor. White chocolate is liked by its users because of its sweetness and creaminess.

The difference between dark chocolate and milk chocolate is that milk chocolate is lighter in color than dark chocolate and contains less cocoa liquor than dark chocolate. Milk chocolate is rich with sugar and is adduced by the chocolate lovers as their most favorite among all three types of chocolates.

The bitterness of dark chocolate is due to the increased qua ntity of chocolate liquor in it. The less is the quantity of chocolate liquor; less is the bitterness of the chocolate. So basically chocolate liquor quantity makes a chocolate more or less bitter.

Hence we need to know about the basic ingredient that is Cocoa liquor, what exactly is it? When cocoa beans are brayed so finely that they turn into a thick paste, that paste is actually the cocoa liquor. The beans go through the grinding process and are faced to heat and grinded into cocoa liquor. This paste is then cooled, dried that gets harden.

Now one must be thinking about the cocoa butter, where does that comes from?

Cocoa butter is a fat extracted from the cocoa beans or from the cocoa liquor. The most common way to extract cocoa butter from cocoa beans is called Broma Process. In this process grounded cocoa beans are hanged in a warm room, where the fat or cocoa butter will automatically drip down from the beans.

Or a simpler technique is to squeeze the beans hard to extract fat.

So after reading this article, the most important ingredient of making a chocolate dark, white or milk is known to us all which is cocoa liquor that determines the outcome of a chocolate.
