The Uniqueness of Belgian Chocolate
The composition of Belgian chocolate has been regulated by law since 1884. In order to prevent adulteration of the chocolate with low-quality fats from other sources, a minimum level of 35% pure cocoa beans was imposed. Adherence to traditional manufacturing techniques also serves to increase the quality of Belgian chocolate.
