So, what is % cacao?

% cacao refers to the percentage of cocoa solids in chocolate. The higher the percentage, the less sugar and milk is used in the chocolate, resulting in a more intense and bitter taste. % cacao is an important factor to consider when choosing chocolate for baking or cooking, as it affects the overall flavor and sweetness of the finished product. Chocolate with a higher % cacao content is also believed to have health benefits, such as antioxidant properties and potential mood-boosting effects. Whether you prefer a bold and complex flavor or a sweeter, more subtle taste, % cacao is a crucial element to consider when indulging in chocolate.
