Is the white layer created on top of the chocolate is harmful?
Even though it has not passed the deadline, it’s often time to open a newly-purchased chocolate and it is covered with a white powder that looks like dust and it’s very often we use to it to throw it away, because we are thinking is not good for eating.
German scientists have finally discovered what the reason is for this and why the upper layer gets whitish color and receives another texture. Due to the increasing number of complaints by consumers, Hamburg scientists have decided to solve this mystery. They came to the conclusion that many people keep it at the wrong temperature.
Exposure of it in an overly hot or too cold place leads to the appearance of white particles on the surface itself, they say. If it is not kept at an adequate temperature, chocolate crumbs are raised on the surface through the tiny cracks. They say the ideal temperature would be 14 to 18 degrees.
Experts point out that this phenomenon is not harmful to our health and it can be eaten despite the created white layer. In addition to the adequate temperature, their advice is already open chocolate is better to be eaten faster, because after a while it begins to release these so-called crystalline particles. However, after all, when you eat chocolate, you will eat it.
