About this chocolate bar:
Our drinking chocolate is made from the same chocolate as our single origin bars. Once the cacao nibs are ground, it's made into big blocks without tempering. Hence it's easy to melt into chocolate drink & milk!
Early in 2020, we visited a cocoa growth North of Ipoh with MYSI* researchers to develop nouveau fermentation methods that would make chocolates that are healthier and more flavorful.
Typically, cocoa fermentation takes between five to seven days, but in results recently published in the Journal of The Science of Food and Agriculture**, we found a way to ferment for as short as three days, while using cocoa harvested earlier; yet producing more phenolic content, antioxidant and epicatechin, each with added health benefits. Notably, the chocolate acquired rich and deep yet clean flavours that impressed our tasting panels.

This 100% dark chocolate is perfect for people who are doing a ketogenic & sugar-free diet. It's keto-friendly, very nutritious and a powerful source of antioxidants.
