I am sorry for little damage on the chocolate. It happened due to mishandling. So kindly adjust with me.

Dairy milk chocolate gives a strong chocolate aroma, I can also sense vanilla and a slight milk aroma. If you are a chocolate lover, you then obviously know sensing chocolate takes us on top of the world.

The chocolate is rectangle in shape where it can be broken into individual pieces.  We can see that it consists of 10 square pieces where all are uniform in shape. As you can see, the colour of the chocolate is brown and the Cadbury logo is etched on the top of each piece.

Dairy milk chocolate is smooth to touch, it is moulded in a way that each piece breaks into equal size. I tried keeping the treat (Dairy milk chocolate piece) in my hand for a while, due to rise in temperature the chocolate started to melt. But I am going to taste it as it is present in the pack.

We know that Cadbury Dairy milk is an excellent chocolate let me try. Don’t misapprehend me, it tastes like chocolate😜. It tastes good in my mouth but takes time to dissolve from my perspective, I love quick melted one or eating a melted one. Here, I can sense the chocolate and the milk taste also gives a rich mouthfeel but takes a little bit time. Just wait for the perfect time for the chocolate to melt rather biting.

We know Dairy milk’s palatability won’t go out of our mouth. I would love to consume another one too.

Dairy Milk’s Ingredients

Ingredients of dairy milk chocolateDairy milk chocolate ingredients

Source : Sugarcane
How : Sugarcane is crushed and the juice is extracted. Then the juice is purified and crystallized to produce sugar.
Why : Sugar gives sweetness and acts as the base ingredient in Dairy milk chocolate.

Source : Milk
How : Milk solids are the powdered form of milk. It is produced by evaporating milk where the water content is evaporated and the dried part is taken as milk solids.
Why : Since Dairy milk chocolate is a dairy chocolate or in other words it is milk chocolate, milk solids play the role of adding milk flavor and rich mouthfeel.

Source : Cocoa beans
How : Cocoa beans are fermented, dried, roasted, dehulled and grounded to produce chocolate liquor. In that state, it contains half finely ground cocoa solids and half cocoa butter from which cocoa butter is separated.
Why : In milk chocolates, cocoa butter plays the role of adding creaminess to the chocolate and it also adds rich mouthfeel.

Source : Cocoa beans
How : Cocoa solids are nothing but the solids that remain after the cocoa butter extraction from the cocoa beans. This is from the same process as cocoa butter production. Cocoa beans are fermented, dried, roasted, dehulled and grounded to produce chocolate liquor. In that state, it contains half finely ground cocoa solids and half cocoa butter from which cocoa solids are separated.
Why : Cocoa beans gives the chocolate, its flavour and imparts brown color to the Dairy milk chocolate.

The pack didn’t tell us about what kind of edible vegetable oil is used. But You can crack a little bit with me.
Source : Plant Source
How : The source must be a plant since it is a vegetarian product. So, the oil is extracted from plant source and is hydrogenated to produce the vegetable fat used here.
Why : This particular ingredient is added in Dairy milk chocolate to replace cocoa butter at a particular ratio i.e. it adds organoleptic and sensory properties close to the cocoa butter.

Emulsifiers are used to mix the ingredients evenly and it holds all the ingredients in Dairy milk chocolate together. Here, two emulsifiers are added which combinedly ease the flow capability of chocolate.

  • E-442

Name : Ammonium Phosphatides
Source : Ammonia
How : Glycerol and hydrogenated rapeseed oil react together under certain conditions and the reacted mixture is allowed to react with phosphorous pentoxide which leads to the formation phosphatidic acid. This is then allowed to react with ammonia and by filtration ammonium phosphatides is formed.
Why : Ammonium phosphatides helps to keep the ingredients bound together and also to increase the flow rate during production i.e. it reduces viscosity of chocolate.

  • E-476

Name : PGPR Polyglycerol Polyricinoleate
Source : Polyglycerol and Castor oil.
How: Castor oil is hydrolyzed and made to react with polyglycerol which is produced by dehydration of glycerol. Both compounds react together to undergo interesterification in order to form a polyglycerol ester i.e. PGPR.
Why : PGPR helps in holding ingredients together as well to reduce the viscosity of chocolate i.e. it helps the liquid chocolate to get filled in the moulding. It also helps in releasing air bubbles (if formed in the chocolate) and prevents blooming of the chocolate.

  • Natural Flavouring Substances

Flavour : Not mentioned
Source : Nature
How : Natural flavouring substances are produced by various methods; we can’t define the process because there is no mention of what is the particular flavour is added.
Why : From the taste and smell attempt which we had done in treat design, we can predict the flavours as maybe chocolate or vanilla.

  • Nature Identical Flavouring Substances

Flavour : Not mentioned
Source : Made in Laboratory
How : Nature identical flavouring substances resemble to the flavour available in nature but completely made in laboratory or industry.
Why : Like I said, we can only predict the flavours as whether chocolate or maybe vanilla is used. These flavours improves the aroma and taste of Dairy Milk chocolate.

  • Artificial Flavouring Substances

Flavour : Ethyl vanillin
Source: Made in Laboratory
How : Artificial flavours do not resemble any chemical structure in nature but made in laboratory in a new chemical structure.
Why : Ethyl Vanillin is a flavour enhancer and it gives vanilla flavour to the Dairy milk chocolate.

Milk chocolate gives you more joy in every bar! text

Classic milk chocolate gives joy in every bar!
Why chocolate gives us joy? The sugar in chocolate makes the brain to release dopamine. Thus, the sweetness always gives us joy. In dairy milk chocolate, 57.3 grams of sugar is present per 100 grams chocolate.

Full and half glass of milk pouring down

Werent you searching for this? Heres the answer.
Milk in the chocolate is mostly used in the form of milk solids (Powdered form of milk) and not milk.  22g of milk solids is used per 100 g milk chocolate. I know you’re wondering then why a Glass and half?  It was once used as a slogan to reveal the presence of milk in the chocolate, i.e. 426 ml of fresh liquid milk is present in 227 g of milk chocolate. But now it is not used as a slogan abiding by the European regulations.

Temperature and humidity changes may cause products to develope a whitish layer, without affecting its fitness for consumption text

Whitish Layered Chocolate! Is the chocolate unfit for consumption
Normally we think it is bad for consumption but the truth is ‘it is fit’ for consumption in chocolates.

  1. This happens when the chocolate is exposed to high moisture and the water draws the sugar to the surface of the chocolate. The sugar content crystallises.
  2. When exposed to sunlight, the fat present breaks down and moves to the surface of the chocolate.

These are the reasons for whitish layer on chocolate but it is fit for consumption.
