Understanding Chocolate Percentages

When shopping for chocolate, you may have noticed the different percentages on the labels, but what do these numbers mean? Well, these numbers indicate how much cocoa beans go into the chocolate. The percentage number indicates how much cocoa goes into it and how it will taste.

For example, dark chocolate bars contain anywhere from 55% to 90% cocoa, giving them a somewhat bitter, although still edible taste. Milk chocolate contains 35% cocoa, making it sweeter tasting chocolate and the most popular consumed chocolates.

Is there 100% cocoa? Well, yes. But it’s more commonly used in baking cakes and brownies where sugar is added because on it’s own, the taste is quite bitter.

At Lazar’s, our dark chocolate bars range from 60% to 80%

But don’t let the high cocoa content of dark chocolate deter you from consuming it. A high-quality dark chocolate bar or other product, such as ones you would find at Lazar’s, are actually quite tasty.

They also have added health benefits such as lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, improving brain function, antioxidants, and many more.

At Lazar’s, we carry an assortment of chocolate products ranging from milk chocolate to very dark chocolate. These include chocolate-covered nuts and candies to chocolate bars and boxes of assorted chocolates.

We also carry products for those with dietary restrictions such as nut and milk allergies, diabetes, and kosher, because we feel that everyone should be able to enjoy a sweet treat now and then.

With the holidays approaching, consider checking out our holiday catalog. Right now, we have our Christmas and Chanukah treats available for purchase. These holiday treats make for great centerpieces or to give away as a gift.

If you are in the Greenvale or Great Neck area, stop by and check out our many goodies, or check us out online. We ship to almost anywhere.

What is the Difference Between Bittersweet and Semisweet Chocolate?

Those who are new to baking may not know there are differences between bittersweet and semisweet chocolate. So before you start baking with either of these types of chocolates, here are some facts about bittersweet and semisweet chocolate.

Bittersweet chocolate contains 70% cacao and has less sugar, where semisweet chocolate has 60% cacao. However, both of these chocolates can be interchangeable when used in baking, although bittersweet has a deeper flavor. 

When substituting bittersweet for semisweet and vice versa, there are some changes in the amounts you will add. For example, when replacing bittersweet with semisweet, you will need to combine 1 ounce of semisweet chocolate and 1/4 tablespoons of cocoa powder. 

When your recipe calls for bittersweet, and you only have semisweet chocolate. In that case, you will need to reduce the amount of sugar or remove it altogether as semisweet contains more sugar than bittersweet. 

It’s always best to taste test the mixture before going any further with the recipe. 

But when you are baking, it’s important to remember it’s all about creativity and your preference. If you like something sweet, semisweet is the way to go, but if you prefer something less sweet, then bittersweet is best for you. 

It’s important to note that unsweetened chocolate is not the same as bittersweet. Unsweetened chocolate contains 100% cocoa and is used to make candy. 

At Lazar’s, we carry chocolates that contain 60 to 80% cacao content, and they come in bars and chips, perfect for your baking needs. And our chips contain no dairy, so they are perfect for those with dietary restrictions. 

For more information on the different types of chocolates, visit our website. Our blog contains many articles, all things chocolate. While you are there, have a look at the many kinds of sweet and savory treats that we offer. You can also place an online order right there, and we ship to almost everywhere.
