The Art of Making Chocolate
Chocolate has always been one of the most craved comfort foods. The cacao bean is where chocolate comes from, and it has been cultivated for the past 3000 years. The Maya considered chocolate the “food of the gods” and the cacao tree a sacred tree.
Chocolate is made from fermented and roasted cocoa beans. The roasted beans are made into a fluid chocolate liquor by grinding them. The chocolate liquor can then be hardened to make chocolate by pouring it into moulds and cooling it.
Chocolate making is not as easy as it sounds. It is a very intricate process with many rules to be kept in mind. Chocolate making was previously the craft of large corporations that mass-produced it. Now, the tables have turned and smaller establishments are in the leading position.
What Makes BeeTee’s Melt Chocolates Unique?
BeeTee’s Melt does not separate the cocoa butter from the beans while making chocolate. This gives BeeTee’s Melt Chocolate a melt-in-the-mouth feel and a fantastic taste. Most mass-produced chocolates are made from cocoa powder or cocoa solids. BeeTee’s Melt Chocolates uses only the ingredients mentioned on their packaging and do not have any added flavorings. Their products are also ISO certified and are recognized by Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Certification.
You may ask how BeeTee’s Melt sweeten their chocolate without using processed sugars or artificial sweeteners. The answer is quite simple. They use naturally occurring sugars like coconut sugar, palm sugar, muscovado sugar, and brown sugar in their chocolates.
