Exploring the Pink Perfection: The History and Development of Ruby Chocolate
If you're a chocolate lover, you've likely heard of the classic trifecta: dark, milk, and white chocolate. But what if we told you there's a fourth chocolate that's been taking the sweet world by storm? Meet Ruby Chocolate, the naturally pink-hued delight that's captivating taste buds around the globe. Sweet Ps is proud to introduce a delectable line of confections based on this innovative chocolate, including figures, toffees, clusters with Wisconsin cherries, pretzels, and pretzel knots. But before we delve into these mouthwatering treats, let's take a journey through the captivating history and development of Ruby Chocolate.
The Birth of Ruby Chocolate
Ruby Chocolate, sometimes referred to as the "fourth chocolate," made its debut in the confectionery world in 2017, thanks to the Belgian-Swiss cocoa company, Barry Callebaut. It was a groundbreaking discovery that resulted from years of research and experimentation by Barry Callebaut's skilled chocolatiers and scientists.
Unlike traditional chocolate, Ruby Chocolate is made from specially processed ruby cocoa beans. These beans are found in different regions of the world, including Ecuador, Brazil, and the Ivory Coast. What sets these beans apart is their natural pink color, which is a result of specific bean selection and processing techniques.
The Ruby Chocolate Process
The creation of Ruby Chocolate involves a unique process that enhances the beans' inherent pink color and gives the chocolate its distinctive fruity and slightly tart flavor profile. Here's a simplified overview of how Ruby Chocolate is made:
1. Selection: Only the finest ruby cocoa beans are chosen for the process. These beans have a natural pinkish hue.
2. Fermentation: The beans undergo a carefully controlled fermentation process to develop their flavor and color.
3. Roasting: After fermentation, the beans are roasted to bring out their unique fruity notes.
4. Winnowing: The roasted beans are cracked, and the outer shell is removed, leaving behind the "nibs."
5. Conching: The nibs are ground into a paste, creating a pink cocoa mass.
6. Tempering: The cocoa mass is tempered to create a smooth, glossy texture.
7. Final Product: The tempered mass is then molded into various confections, including bars, figures, toffees, and clusters.
The Taste of Ruby Chocolate
What truly sets Ruby Chocolate apart is its flavor. It boasts a natural fruitiness, reminiscent of berries, with a hint of tartness. It's a delightful departure from the traditional sweet and creamy profiles of dark, milk, and white chocolate. Ruby Chocolate's unique taste profile has made it a favorite among adventurous foodies and chocolatiers looking to create innovative treats.
