Melt into your mouth white chocolate truffles. A sweet and creamy treat with a delicate touch of coconut!
When someone says that their favourite chocolate is white chocolate the most common response is « well that’s not real chocolate ! », is there any truth ? So what is white chocolate then? Let’s put it simply, even if it hurts to hear it … white chocolate does not contain any cocoa solids … at all!
Cocoa solids and cocoa butter are the two main components use to make dark chocolate, it is full of minerals and vitamins as well as being one of the greatest source of flavanol antioxidants. White chocolate on the other hand is made of cocoa butter, milk solids, and sugar to give it some flavour as cocoa butter does not taste anything on its own. Cocoa butter contains a very high amount of fat and should be consumed in moderation but that does not mean that it is necessarily bad for us!
Benefits of Cocoa Butter:
Cocoa butter has proved to help in reducing the signs of aging on our skin, as well as reducing skin inflammation such as psoriasis and eczema. Research has also shown that it contributes in reducing hair loss.
Even though cocoa butter helps our skin in looking healthier however it is very high in calories and saturated fat! Yet research have also shown that cocoa butter contains stearic acid which does not increase cholesterol level. That does not mean that white chocolate should be eaten everyday though! A bar of 100 gr contains more than 70 gr of sugar so have a little bit of it and ensure that you only have the best quality one!
I believe that what we put in our bodies should make us feel good inside and out! And because we love white chocolate I have decided to make my own so that we nourish our bodies with the best ingredients only!
This white chocolate is dairy-free and made with organic unrefined sugar and no added oil as it can often be the case.
