What is pink chocolate

Pink or ruby ​​chocolate is a type of cocoa in its own right, a variety that saw the light of day a few years ago by the Barry Callebaut chocolate company. In addition to its beautiful pink color, which is obtained naturally, ruby ​​chocolate is characterized by its delicious and addictive flavor, slightly acid and fruity .

The secret of its colour, aroma and flavor lies in its preparation. To obtain pink chocolate, cocoa beans from crops from Ecuador, Brazil and the Ivory Coast are selected. The selected variety is rich in flavonoids , which not only have antioxidant properties, but are also responsible for the intense color of many fruits, vegetables and spices.
