Bleached coconut sugar

I was buying all kind of coconut sugar lately, because I use not only dry one for chocolate. I can use traditional one for other sweets. Traditional coconut sugar in Thailand contains moisture and shaped into different disks. Usually you need to cut it to work with. While I was cutting this exact sugar, I realized that it is way too white for coconut sugar. Normal coconut sugar is golden brown, because sap of coconut tree is caramelised during boiling. But there is a practice to add bleach to sap to prevent spoilage and improve the colour. I have one word: sad.

Cacao nibs oat flour cookies

These cacao nibs cookies were created in attempt to try out oat flour that I finally was able to purchase. It is very fine flour unlike one I get by blending oats on high speed in my blender.

Chocolate work

Chocolate work

How chocolate work look like? Do you think it is romantic, fairy-tale and full of miracles? I can definitely tell it is work for patient people 🙂 And very accurate ones. This is my day-to-day company. And the intoxicating smell is coming not only from chocolate. Yes, cacao aroma is in the air, but I clearly remember another thing – smell of alcohol that every chocolatier needs every day to work on molds and tools.

Wild chocolate structure

Wild chocolate (untempered chocolate that left to harden at room temperature) gets very interesting structure with time. It looks like big atoms chained to each other. On the top – of course – it is fat bloom, but all the chocolate gets this new for me structure. Maybe it happens only in a hot climate, I haven’t researched on this topic yet, but I am looking forward to it.

Daily sugar intake

How much chocolate a day can you eat? It is of course the question of personal preferences but today I want to talk about sugar. I use coconut sugar for my chocolate, and the ratio is quite low, from 20 to 35%. You can see it on the wrapper. Normal bar of mine weights 80 gr. Which makes sugar content to be 16 to 28 grams for 1 bar, depending the kind of chocolate. Recommended sugar intake is less than 10% of daily consumed calories. How to calculate this? All the standards you see on products are calculated on average norm of 2000 calories per day. It is very average and for people who don’t work out or do not work physically all day long but sit nearby laptop are way too high. Women who are on diet and try to lose weight, to say, consume around 1200-1500 calories a …
