Dark chocolate callets 55% without soya

The LevOlade dark chocolate callets 55% without soya is a dark chocolate with 55% cocoa beans, 100% natural vanilla and cocoa butter and without soya lecithin. Sunflower lecithin is used instead. So Levensstroom also has a cleaner label in its range, chocolate without additives, artificial colourings and flavourings or allergens. This dark chocolate has a roasted cocoa taste and hints of dried fruit and nuts.

Besides sustainability, organic products and transparency about the origin of the ingredients, many consumers also want to know what’s in their chocolate. Therefore, they pay more attention to the product label and want to reduce or remove poorly perceived ingredients such as additives, artificial colours and flavours or allergens, for example soy lecithin in chocolate.

What is lecithin?

Lecithin is a type of lipid, a fatty substance that occurs naturally in humans, animals and plants (1). This substance consists of several substances such as omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, phospholipids and vitamin E. Lecithin has a light yellow colour. Lecithin is used by every cell in your body (2). Our cell membranes, which regulate the passage of nutrients in and out of the cells, consist largely of lecithin. This nutrient helps fats, such as cholesterol and other lipids, to dissolve in moisture and slowly pass out of the body. What this simply means is that this substance helps the body deal with fat and naturally lowers cholesterol. This is why lecithin is added to some foods as an emulsifier. There are two types of lecithin, namely sunflower lecithin and soya lecithin. Most chocolate products have soy lecithin, because it is much cheaper than sunflower lecithin. Lecithin has the E-number E322. Because it can bind fat and water, we can make mayonnaise or chocolate, for example. For decades lecithin has also been sold as a supplement, usually in the form of granules or powder.

The LevOlade black chocolate callets without soy therefore uses sunflower lecithin instead of soy lecithin and is therefore a healthier product. Because usually soybeans are genetically modified and the adverse effect is not yet known. In addition, soy is an allergen and therefore for many people not ‘eatable’. Sunflower lecithin is slightly more expensive, but it does enhance the quality of the chocolate. We find it important to use honest ingredients for our products, and not to go for the cheapest solution.

Real Belgian chocolate

  • Cocoa content: 55%
  • Sustainable label respecting local cocoa farmers
  • Sunflower lecithin instead of soy lecithin
  • Enrobing, moulding, seasoning and panelling, handy for melting and making your chocolate mousse, chocolate milk, sauces,… or to decorate your ice-cream sundae.

The Levocolate chocolate drops you will receive come from cocoa farmers around the world. The cacao farmers receive training and fair prices. This allows them to spend more time caring for their plantation, improving their skills, productivity and quality. The organisations work closely with local farmers in managing the fermentation and drying process. The fermentation process is closely monitored and optimised by local fermentation experts close to the cocoa farmers. Controlling this process ensures that Levolade chocolate is made from the highest quality cocoa beans. The result is a win-win. Farmers deliver a better crop as well as receiving a higher income. And the chocolate producers are assured of higher quality beans.
For every kilo of chocolate you buy, Cacao-Trace™ pays a “Chocolate Bonus” of 0.10 € to the Cacao farmers.

The LevOlade dark chocolate callets 55% without soya are callets with a balanced 55% dark chocolate with fruity notes and a roasted cocoa taste and with sunflower lecithin instead of soya lecithin. These dark callets are also dairy-free, so contain no lactose and no casein.

You can melt these callets very easily in a pan au bain-marie without having to break or chop a block first. Once melted, you can use them in any way you like:

  • melted in a nut drink such as almond milk, coconut milk or other milk-free and soya-free drinks
  • You can eat this dark chocolate as a snack
  • as a sauce or decoration for your desserts, cakes, ice cream sundaes, muffins, cakes,…
  • melted for chocolate mousse, chocolate cake, cakes,…

You can then use it to make the most diverse delicacies: pralines, chocolate lollipops,… Keep in mind that if you want to claim your entire end product as “reduced in sugar”, then the entire end product must contain at least 40% less sugar, not just the chocolate. So use ingredients that contain as little sugar as possible.
