TCHOPro 99% Unsweetened Dark Couverture Pieces 3kg bag is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty I snack on this. Bold classic cocoa taste (not fruity or floral). It was delicious in mocha ice cream. I haven't made any confections with it yet, but I think it would make for some good truffles. I'm not an expert, but I've cooked plenty with the leading professional chocolate brands and eaten a variety of quality chocolate.

 Are these chocolate critters considered raw? How are they made? Meaning do you use any high heat and such that would denature the nutritional value of raw cacao?

Asked by: Lisa
Hello Lisa, Thank you for your question, we are glad you asked. Our 99% are not considered raw since our cacao beans go through a light roasting process to bring out the best, natural flavors of the cacao. Once the beans have been roasted, they go through a grinding process to smooth out the texture, with no added sugar. The nutritional value of the cacao is still a high percentage due to the light temperature during the roasting process. The purpose of roasting the cacao is to highlight and enhance the true chocolate flavor (similar to lightly roasted coffee). Also, the roasting process helps ensure that our chocolate is free of pathogens that can often be found in raw cacao. We hope this helps answer your question, many thanks for reaching out!

OK, so what is the other 1%?

Asked by: Dale
Hello, We use 100% liquor in the recipe but I the 1% left refers to the fact there can be sugar residue in the system. We do not add any additional sugar. Thank you! TCHO Customer Service

When will the 99% 3kg bag be available?  It is out of stock every time I checked it. Thanks. 

Asked by: Jane

There has been a lot of new lately about lead and cadmium in chocolate. Does your chocolate (specifically the 99%) has lead of cadmium? If so, how much? Tks.

Is this chocolate tempered? How long is the shelf life? What can help extend it?

Asked by: Kevin

What is the shelf life of this 3 kg bag? Can it be frozen to extend shelf life? Does freezing change the quality/taste of the chocolate?
