Lindt Cacoa Pure produced from 100% cocoa fruit with 'no added ingredients'
Lindt & Sprungli has launched a bar produced from 100% of the cocoa fruit with 'no other added ingredients'.
Lindt Excellence Cocoa Pure is available in limited quantities at four Lindt Chocolate Shops across the UK: Lindt Chocolate Shop Bluewater in Kent, Lindt Chocolate Shop Trinity Centre Leeds, Lindt Chocolate Shop Arndale Centre Manchester and Lindt Chocolate Shop Liverpool One, also online.
The company described the product as ‘completely natural’ with only ingredients from the cocoa fruit.
“In order to create this new, exotic cocoa delight, the Lindt Master Chocolatiers used their expertise and experience to combine the intensive cocoa note of the cocoa bean (82%) with the subtle fruity, exotic acidity of the pulp (18%),” the chocolate specialist revealed.
“A spectacular flavour adventure for dark chocolate lovers, it starts with an acidic fruity taste followed by an intense cocoa note and culminates in subtle chocolate nuances.”
The company noted that, unlike conventional chocolate production which discards the cocoa pulp, Lindt Cocoa Pure leverages the ‘natural sweetness’ of the pulp, which is extracted using a ‘new, innovative method’ and added to the chocolate. “As a result, all of the cocoa fruit pulp can be used in the chocolate.”
