Dark VS White Chocolate: What Are The Main Differences?


“Dark VS White Chocolate”, the most controversial topic for chocolate lovers. But don’t worry, here we will tell you the differences between dark and white chocolate on all 4-factors:- ingredients, health benefits, texture, and uses.

By the end of this blog, you’ll be able to get some closure regarding Dark VS White Chocolate:


  1. Ingredients 
  • Dark and white chocolate both carry cocoa butter in them and are eaten as a dessert.
  • Dark chocolate only includes two ingredients: cacao liquor and sugar. It does not contain any milk products. Most of the dark bars have from 73-83% cacao.
  • But there is no cacao liquor in white chocolate. It contains only cacao butter, sugar, and milk powders. Because of its high butter quantity, its melting point is much lower than milk or dark chocolates. 
  1. Health benefits
  • Health benefits in chocolate come from cocoa. So, you will not get many nutrients through white chocolate. It is loaded with added sugar, does not have any fibre.
  • On the other hand, dark chocolate is usually at least 50%-80% cocoa. So, while it still cannot be viewed as healthy food, it is at least a little extra nutritious than white chocolate.

  1. Uses
  • Both dark and white chocolate sold, either plain or with added flavours like vanilla, orange, mint, and nuts.
  • Both types of chocolate are used in various ways: as desserts when melted, as chips, in coffee, and in other beverages like sauces and dips.
