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.
The Madagascar cocoa is shipped to the Amanao chocolate factory in Salt Lake City, USA, where the chocolate is made with custom-built machinery. While the cocoa used in Amano's Madagascar chocolate is not mixed with cocoa from anywhere else than Madagascar, 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 beans that can be used in cooking, snacking and in chocolate dishes. Since nibs come directly from the cocoa tree, they contain a higher amount of theobromine than regular chocolate products. Theobromine is one of the ingridients contributing to chocolate's reputation as an aphrodisiac.
Amano Madagascar chocolate is also available in bulk form, which is bought mainly by professional chefs and chocolatiers to be used for their own chocolate creations.
