Organic food – Classic chocolate
The Modica chocolate is healthier because it is obtained by cold working of highly selected ingredients, thus excluding the phase of conching. The cocoa mass is processed together with raw cane sugar, without adding any emulsifier or additive. Thanks to this slow and long cold process the sugar crystals remain intact within the mass, giving the final product a grainy texture and rough.
Try it if you love enjoy the softer side and delicious chocolate.
