What is Halal Chocolate?
Halal Chocolate are manufactured from a mixture of cocoa nib, cocoa mass, cocoa press cake, cocoa powder, cocoa butter (optional) and permitted optional ingredients and flavouring agents produced with halal certified raw material and in a high level of hygiene, as well as meeting a certain standard of cleanliness, safety and nutrition.
There is some instance where food manufacturers choose to mix vegetable oils with lard so as to minimize production costs because lard is the cheapest fat and easily available for the food industries.
Since year 2010, the industry had introduced new chocolate products that are mixed with formulae to become functional chocolate-health products beside the conventional chocolate confectionery products. These choco-health products are mixed with collagen and also mirifca that are targeted for men and women who are health-conscious such as preventing aging and wrinkles.
