We often get asked what ingredients our dark chocolate contains. But before we get to that, what’s the difference between dark chocolate and milk chocolate? Well, it’s all in the ingredients.

Naturally, milk chocolate contains milk, where dark chocolate generally does not contain any dairy. While cocoa butter sounds like it’s a dairy ingredient, it is actually made from the fatty portion of the cacao bean, and it is naturally dairy-free.  

Often times, because dark chocolate ingredients doesn’t contain any milk solids, it can often have a dry or chalk texture, and it can have a very bitter aftertaste. This is something that is often said about sugar free chocolate as well. But Amber Lyn dark chocolate isn’t bitter, chalky, or dry. Just check our testimonials! Everyone loves our sugar free chocolate, and even those who dislike dark chocolate enjoy ours.

When looking at dark chocolate ingredients it’s also important to pay attention to the cocoa content. The content can range from 30% in sweet dark chocolate to above 80% for extremely dark bars.

Amber Lyn’s dark chocolate contains 55% cocoa content. This makes for a nice balance with our other dark chocolate ingredients. So what is Amber Lyn dark chocolate made from?

Like we mentioned above, Amber Lyn dark chocolate ingredients are sugar free. Our dark chocolate contains unsweetened chocolate, maltitol (from wheat), cocoa butter, soy lecithin, and natural vanilla. Because someone of our chocolates contains nuts, all of our chocolates are manufactured in a facility that contains nuts and may contain trace amounts. Keep this in mind if you share the your chocolate with others or if you have nut allergies.
