What is Craft Chocolate?
It is usually used as a synonym for bean-to-bar chocolate and it means exactly as it sounds. Chocolate makers, buy their beans from South America, Africa, Far East Asia, and the Caribbean. Cocoa trees are anywhere between 20 degrees north and south of the equator. Cocoa beans have different tastes and crystallization depending on their origin. The types closer to the equator are better in quality.
One important characteristic of craft chocolate is the number of ingredients, which is quite low, sometimes as low as two. Just cocoa beans and sugar. Traditionally cocoa butter and lecithin are also common ingredients and of course milk solids in the case of milk chocolate.
Chocolate behavior is pretty hard to control so large manufacturers end up putting more chemicals and they process the cocoa beans much further to control the end result. This of course compromises the health benefits of cocoa beans rendering the chocolate a fattening snack.
Sugar-Free Craft Chocolate
Chocolate makers usually are upset with not using sugar as traditionally done. Since it is really hard to predict the behavior of chocolate without sugar and not much is known about the crystallization of the cocoa butter without the help of sugar, the end result usually is not satisfactory.
This is the reason we had to do two years of research to achieve similar behavior and taste of sugar in our chocolates. From the after taste which cannot be less than heavenly to the melting location in our tongues. Our cocoa beans appreciated our diligence and granted us the most exquisite chocolate without the undesirable properties of sugar. The goal was to create the most delicious chocolate without spiking blood glucose levels, and without adding elements of questionable origin. So our Allulose Sweetened Chocolates are not only suitable for ketogenic, low carb, diabetic diets and they also are there for anyone desiring to enjoy chocolate without the guilt.
A great portion of the magic in Allulose Chocolates is coming from Allulose itself since its characteristics are very similar to sugar. This allowed us to create a rich creamy gourmet keto chocolate just as the way a rich creamy gourmet chocolate is made. If you want to learn more about Allulose visit our Allulose Information page.
