Why is Belgian chocolate world famous?
Several objective reasons justify the worldwide reputation of Belgian chocolate:
- - The cocoa beans used inBelgiumare of extraordinary quality. Their origin is carefully chosen and its fabrication underlies strict rules.
- - The roasting and crushing of the cocoa beans require special attention. (For comparison inBelgiumcocoa beans are reduced to 12 microns, inGreat Britainto 24 microns).
- - The ingredients that are used to produce chocolate are all of superior quality.
- - The required minimum amount of cocoa for dark chocolate is 35%, in reality often even 45%. Planète Chocolat’s Dark Chocolate has a percentage of 74% cocoa which explains its intense and delicious taste.
The chocolaterie Planète Chocolat also cultivates its know-how and its passion for chocolate, which is passed on from generation to generation.
