Nestle in the UK is set to make chocolate bars ‘healthy’ with a new process that enables the company to make chocolate without refined sugar.
The breakthrough will cut sugar content by around 40% The Sun reported.
The usual process of throwing away the white pulp that covers cocoa beans, has been swapped out and the pulp is now being used as a natural sweetener.
Head of Nestlé’s confectionery business Alexander von Maillot said: “Using pulp makes it a more premium chocolate. Sugar is a cheap ingredient.”
Marketing boss Patrice Bula added: “We’re proud to bring chocolate lovers a new chocolate made entirely from the cocoa fruit, without adding refined sugar”.
