Had a conversation the other day with someone about white chocolate. While it really isn't a chocolate, the FDA has strict guidelines on what can and cannot be called white chocolate which "must have at least 20% cocoa butter, 14% milk solids, and 3.5 % milk fat."

Also, white chocolate isn't truly white. Real (aka good) white chocolate will be more ivory in color than white. Do you know how they get the white color - titanium dioxide - "a naturally occurring mineral used as a bright white pigment for paint, in the food industry as a coloring, in sunscreens and cosmetics." Mmm - sounds tasty.

So what does this mean to you? Read the label! Know what you buying - don't pay top dollar for a white candy coating claiming to be white chocolate.

More importantly, know what you are eating. At Biscotti Goddess, we use real white chocolate and always will. (picture taken from saveur.com)
