What Is White Chocolate?

Is white chocolate really chocolate??? Curious minds want to know!

  • White Chocolate is made with cocoa butter, milk solids, and sugar, but it does not contain cocoa solids or have the brown appearance of other varieties of “chocolate.”
  • Nestles developed white chocolate in Switzerland in the 1930s to use up leftovers from making more traditional chocolates.
  • Since cocoa butter comes from cocoa beans, some argue that white chocolate is true chocolate.
  • There is no consensus, but according to the Washington Post, the FDA states: For a chocolate to be labeled as chocolate, as opposed to candy, the Food and Drug Administration requires that the bar be made up of at least 10 percent cocoa mass (nibs plus the cocoa fat inherent to the bean) , with no specifications about cocoa butter. White chocolate, on the other hand, has to have a cocoa butter content of at least 20 percent and does not require the inclusion of nibs.

What do YOU think? Is white chocolate a true variety of chocolate???
