An exciting innovation has today been unveiled as KitKat Chocolatory launches a new chocolate experience, using cacao pulp to naturally sweeten the chocolate surrounding the iconic KitKat wafer.
KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Incoa uses more of the cacao fruit than ever before by unlocking the full potential of the cacao pulp, the white fleshy substance surrounding the cocoa beans.
Normally when cocoa beans are removed from the cacao fruit for fermentation, various white pulp follows, and the remainder is discarded. However, KitKat Chocolatory has used breakthrough technology to make the most of the nutrients and natural sugars in the cacao pulp.
In addition to its natural sweetness, the cacao pulp also brings a floral, fruity and tangy taste to the bar, whilst maintaining the taste and texture KitKat fans know and love.
Head Chocolatier at KitKat Chocolatory Connie Yuen said the company has spent a considerable amount of time developing this product and is “delighted to bring a pioneering world-first concept to the Australian market.”
“This is the first time that we have been able to use more of the cacao fruit to make chocolate, unlocking the pulp potential,” Ms Yuen said.
“We are always looking for creative ways to deliver innovative new taste experiences and using more of the cacao fruit is the latest in a number of exciting productions we have in the pipeline, so stay tuned for more news in the coming months.”
