The Best 100% Chocolate: A Pure Indulgence

What is 100% Chocolate?

100% chocolate, also known as unsweetened or baking chocolate, is a type of chocolate that contains only cocoa solids and cocoa butter, with no added sugar or other sweeteners. It's enjoyed on its own by those who appreciate the rich, complex flavors of pure cocoa. Here at Bar & Cocoa we have the largest selection of single origin 100% chocolate bars in the world.

Why People Buy 100% Chocolate

With the rise of the craft chocolate movement and an increased focus on healthy, natural foods, 100% chocolate has gained popularity among consumers. People buy it for several reasons:

  1. Health Benefits: 100% chocolate is rich in flavonoids, a type of antioxidant that can promote heart health, reduce inflammation, and even improve brain function. It also contains iron, magnesium, and other essential minerals.
  2. Dietary Preferences: For those following low-sugar or sugar-free diets, 100% chocolate is an ideal choice. It's also suitable for vegan and dairy-free diets, as it contains only cocoa.
  3. Flavor: While it's certainly an acquired taste, many people enjoy the complex, nuanced flavors of 100% chocolate. With no sugar to mask the cocoa, these bars can showcase the diverse flavors of different cocoa bean varieties and origins.
