About

Semi-sweet chocolate is a chocolate which has a level of sweetness that falls between sweet milk chocolate and bitter-sweet chocolate.

Most people know semi-sweet chocolate as dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is chocolate that does not contain milk solids, for example extra-bittersweet, bittersweet, and semi-sweet chocolate.

Semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolates contain cocoa liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla, and sometimes soy lecithin (which acts as an emulsifier).

The quality and blends of cocoa beans, amount and quality of the added ingredients, and the processing determines the quality of the chocolate.

Each brand has its own special formula and method of processing.

Bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolates contain at least 35% chocolate liquor in North America and 43% in Britain.

The best chocolates can contain up to 70% chocolate liquor. The higher the content of chocolate liquor, the more rich and flavoursome the chocolate.

Bittersweet chocolate generally has a stronger chocolate flavour than milk chocolate or sweet chocolate. Semi-sweet chocolate generally contains more sugar than bittersweet chocolate.

Semi-sweet chocolate will keep for several years, if well wrapped and stored in a cool dry place with good air circulation.
