The Amano Artisan Chocolate range include a 70% Madagascar bar, cocoa nibs and bulk chocolate. All Madagascar Amano chocolates are made with cocoa grown on fair trade certified farms in the Sambirano region of Madagascar.
While the Madagascar cocoa is shipped to the Amanao chocolate factory in Salt Lake City, USA, where the chocolate products are produced using highly specialised machinery, additional ingredients, such as Vanilla and sugar do not necessarily come from Madagascar.
The Madagascar 70% Cocoa Nibs are are dry-roasted pieces of the cocoa bean. Nibs can be used in cooking, snacking and chocolate dishes. Since nibs come directly from the cocoa tree, they contain higher amounts of theobromine than any finished chocolate products.
Amano Madagascar chocolate is also available in bulk form, which is mainly bought by professional chefs and chocolatiers to use as an ingridinet for their own chocolate creations.
